Donald E. Westlake, R.I.P.

A giant has passed away. Thankfully we still have his writing.

Obituary here

You can find links to a hell of a lot more Westlake tributes here.

Nice link page. Thanks for that. Lots to read there.

The one silver lining over this very dark cloud is that they are re-issuing the Parker books, in order. The first three are already out. I hope they get the recognition they deserve. I'm thinking of maybe re-reading them all this year, but it might be a bit early yet (I reread them all for a second time about 3 or 4 years ago).

A lot of the tributes are mentioning the Mitch Tobin novels that he wrote as Tucker Coe. I think I will try to read those this year.
