Tony Hillerman, R.I.P.

Sad news for Tony Hillerman fans. He was a wonderful writer. If you've never had a chance to read any of his Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee books, mystery novels that also served to introduce the cultures and traditions of the Navajo people, I can't recommend them highly enough.

Edit to add: Sarah Weinman has a good round-up of tributes to Hillerman from around the web.

Man, that's depressing. He was a wonderful writer.
