1925 - Aug.20 2013 of a stroke at the age of 87. Author of 45 books, he was working on #46. One of my current favorite authors, many of his books were made into movies (Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, among others) but apparently Elmore was less than thrilled with the way they turned out (as most people who see a movie after reading the book first will agree with).
Hopefully the last book was far enough along that someone will be able to finish it...we can only hope...
