> Robert B. Parker just died. Supposedly while writing at his desk. He was 78.
Damn. When I fell in love with the P.I. genre in the early '80s, Bill
Pronzini and Robert B. Parker were my heroes among contemporary
writers. Although I dropped Parker after _A Catskills Eagle_, I still
have a soft spot for the early Spenser novels.
Personal favorites are _Looking for Rachel Wallace_, _Early Autumn_,
_Ceremony_. Hell, I could probably list the first eleven novels. I'll be interested in seeing which more recent novels come up in this discussion.
