R.I.P. Robert B. Parker

While just surfing the web today, I found out that Robert B. Parker, the author of 'Appaloosa'; 'Resolution'; and 'Brimstone': a series of western novels featuring the characters Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, had passed away on January 18th, 2010.

He also wrote 'Gunman's Rhapsody', a story about the famous lawman Wyatt Earp.

I quite enjoyed these novels and was looking forward to many more as they were fast-paced with witty dialogue and well written.

Robert B. Parker was well known for his criminal fiction works, most notably the Spenser series which contained 37 novels.
