Another master passes: Elmore Leonard, R.I.P.

If you've read any of Elmore Leonard's mysteries, you know what a loss this is.  If you haven't read any, go order a few, and then come back here.

Leonard wrote with a command of voice that few authors achieve.  He wrote clearly and cleverly, with a wonderful eye for detail and an even better ear for dialog. 

He also wrote regularly, putting out book after book for many years. 

I never had a chance to meet him or hear him talk, but I've read a fair amount of his work and enjoyed it all. 

I'm sorry there won't be more.
