David Thompson

David Thompson died this week at 38. There are too many reasons why that's terrible news. He was a good and generous man who read and recommended and published a lot of writers who aren't household names but should be, who was loved by everybody who knew him, and who was newly married and finding success at a business he loved. My visit to Murder by the Book was a highlight of the year for me, and the few times I got to shake his hand will stand out in my mind always.

Read Duane Swierczynski's remembrance of David at his blog. When his family lets us know what we can do in his memory, I'll post information here.
