ED GORMAN, 1941-2016

Ed Gorman was one of the best writers of our time in any genre.  His short stories could go arrow-swift into the heart of the human condition.  Read "The Face" or "The Reason Why."  He was spot-on in portraying middle America in the Fifties and Sixties.  Read his Sam McCain novels.  His knowledge of politics and it's dirty underside are -- if this is the word -- joyous.  Read the Dev Conrad books.  His compassion, enthusiasm, and friendship was important to many, many people.  Read today's post on Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine.

There's a hole in the world that will be hard to fill.
