RIP -- He's been a favorite of mine for decades. Nobody wrote dialogue like he did.

Yep, one of my favorite crime fiction writers. I didn't realize how old he was,I've been reading him for years and thought he was about my age. He had a great life and entertained many many lives.

The dialogue in Justified is just stunning (I know he didn't write the individual episodes, but they captured it well). The Raylan/Boyd conversations are things of beauty.
