    Elmore Leonard, creator of some of the best crime and Western fiction around, passed away today. Esquire has a nice tribute to him here.

    I remember when I realized Get Shorty was based on a book. I've been hooked on Leonard ever since.

    I first read Leonard in the prison library when I was working solitary back when I was about 20. Definitely have a lot of respect for the man and his works.
