Crime Novelist Elmore Leonard 1925-2013

Prolific crime novelist Elmore Leonard, author of Get Shorty among others, passed away in his home on August 20, 2013. 60 years into his career he was still writing a book a year, because he said, “It’s fun.” Click here for his full New York Times obituary.

His last book was published in 2012, and there are no more planned for the future, so he will be removed from the BESTSELLER Club author list.
