Local author and crime fiction master Elmore Leonard died earlier this morning after a stroke. Not sure how many folks on here have read any of his work, but the guy wrote about one novel a year for 60 years and many of them were turned into well-known movies and TV shows like Get Shorty, 3:10 to Yuma, and Justified. I'm a huge fan of Justified, though I haven't read as much of his actual writing as I should have. Big loss.
