Happy Birthday, Bill Pronzini
It's the birthday of a mystery-writing Grandmaster, and the tributes are rolling in. Here's one from Ed Gorman. And one from the Rap Sheet. And the Bunburyist. I've been enjoying Pronzini's books for so long that I don't even like to think about it, and I was even lucky enough long ago to get him to contribute to Mass Market American Publishing a book on paperback history that I edited 30 years ago. A terrific guy, a great collector, a man who knows more about pulps and paperback history than just about anybody, an MWA Grandmaster, and one of the best crime writers around. Happy birthday!
