RIP Tony Hillerman

Tony Hillerman is dead. I'm much more a reader of science fiction and fantasy than mystery, but I've read every one of Hillerman's novels and loved them all. He was a wonderful, humane writer, and by all accounts a dear man as well. I will miss him as will hundreds of thousands of other readers. One of the great writers of the twentieth century left us last night and the world is poorer place for it.

I hear you, Kelly. "Humane" is exactly the right word for Hillerman, who was good in many ways and will be missed by many readers.
