Farewell Elmore Leonard

from Elmer Leonard. com

The world seems a little bit darker now that Elmore Leonard -- who passed on August 20th -- has gone to the last round-up in the sky. His brand of western tale always took the reader to a place that was hard but understandable, and new, yet somehow familiar. And it was always a place to be entertained. So long, pardner. We’ll miss you, but we know that your legacy will continue.

If you haven’t had a chance to read the western fare by Elmore Leonard, you really ought to give yourself the opportunity. You can catch them all with “The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard,” and then move on to his non-western stories, since he had a far-reaching talent.
