[Author Obit] Elmore Leonard 1925 - 2013

Author Elmore Leonard died this morning (Aug. 20) at his home. He was 87 years old. 

From his official website: 

"With his knack for snappy dialogue, many of Leonard’s works have been turned into movies, including 'Hombre' (starring Paul Newman), 'Get Shorty,' 'Out of Sight' and 'Jackie Brown' (based upon his 'Rum Punch').

Leonard particularly enjoyed the hit F/X series 'Justified,' based on his novella 'Fire in the Hole,' and was inspired to write a novel, 'Raylan,' in 2012, about the title character." - Read the rest at Elmore Leonard's website
