GEORGE CHESBRO, R.I.P.

GEORGE CHESBRO, R.I.P.

I'M SADDENED BY CHESBRO'S PASSING. HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST IMAGINATIVE MYSTERY WRITERS IN THE GENRE. IT WAS JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO I COVERED HIS EXTRODINARY NOVEL, SHADOW OF A BROKEN MAN, IN MY FRIDAY FORGOTTEN BOOKS POST.


HERE'S THE WORD FROM CHESBRO'S DANGEROUS DWARF WEBSITE WEBMASTER . . .

I am very sad to report that George Chesbro died this morning after an illness.

Like all of you, I am a huge fan of George’s work. My friendship with him began in 1999 when I sent him a letter describing the fan website that I had created for his work. He liked what I’d done, and over the next couple of months, the fan site was transformed into Dangerous Dwarf, the official George C. Chesbro website.

I’ve very much enjoyed my friendship with George and [his wife] Robin over the years, and I will miss being able to correspond with him.I'm sure Mongo and Garth will miss him, too.
