Elmore Leonard just passed away today. I loved his usage of dialogue and his writing reminds me of the late Ross Thomas's style.

Thanks for the written work Mr. Leonard, you will be missed.

Queenie Chan (queeniechan) Agreed! I've only ever read one or two Elmore Leonard novels ('Be Cool' was one of them), but he instantly became one of my favourite writers just on style alone. He had a voice that's so unique, so recognisable, that it occupies a special place in my head.

I'm not big on prose reading, but I seem to be attracted to the really dry, laconic writers. Elmore Leonard wins here!

Jim (runawaybastard) | 39 comments I am a huge fan of this great author. I've read a lot of his books, and I loved them, even the ones that aren't great. You will be missed sir.
