RIP Tony Hillerman

Tony Hillerman passed away on Sunday. Hillerman introduced millions of readers to a culture that has been long ignored while keeping us captivated with wonderful mysteries. He will be missed.

I (briefly) took one of his classes at the University of New Mexico and spoke with him (as a student) several times. He was a genuinely good guy, and good for my home state of New Mexico and its unique culture. He'll be missed.

Dance Hall of the Dead was the first mystery I remember reading. He'll be missed.
