RIP Tony Hillerman

Dead at 83 of pulmonary failure. Twenty-some years ago a friend gave me one of his novels to read and I began following the crime-solving of Lt. Joe Leaphorn and Sgt. Jim Chee. Hillerman's novels were hard to put down and he used his excellent writing skills to entertain and teach respect for native American cultures.

Oh. Guess I have to break this news to my mom now. He's one of her favorite authors too.
