RIP Elmore Leonard.

Elmore Leonard passed away this morning, marking the end of an era in both literature and movies.

He started writing Westerns stories for pulp magazines and then expanded into Western novels and screenplays before expanding into crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many set in and around his hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

He was a master storyteller and most writers seek to come close to his skill with dialogue.

He will be missed, but his work will be enjoyed for generations.
