RIP to a fine author

I'm saddened this week by the passing of Tony Hillerman, author of the Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn series of mysteries. I was introduced to Hillerman by my mother, and quickly fell under the spell of his plain but poetic prose and layered representation of the Navajo nation.

If you haven't read any of his books, give them a try. He was really a masterful writer.
