RIP, Tony Hillerman

Tony Hillerman died yesterday at the age of 83. He was a masterful storyteller of the West, famous for his tales of the Navajo reservation. I enjoyed reading his books, often times handed down to me from my grandfather and father. He wrote stories about the mysticism of the Navajos that didn’t rely on blood and terror. They were often times cerebral and I’ll miss reading his novels.

  1. That’s a real shame. He’ll be missed.

    Thank you for posting about it. Haven’t seen any mention in my uber-casual news aggregating.

  3. Oh.. and where is your public announcement about NaNo and your web badge? Saying you’re going to do it is only one part. You can’t fully experience the humiliation unless you declare it to a lot of people and hang it all out there for the world to see.

    Get a move on.

  5. It’s coming. I just signed up after much thought and beer last night. Mostly beer. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned while drinking beer, it’s ok to make dumb decisions but it’s not OK to do anything with images on my blog. 🙂

  9. Haha, did you really think you could catch me on a Saturday morning drinking at 9 AM and slip up to tell you where the evidence is? You misunderestimate me.
