I received a copy of his "Collected Stories" as a Christmas gift and was just flipping through it tonight when I spotted your announcement of his death. This 1995 edition of almost 675 pages contains all 56 of the stories he wrote between 1946 and 1995. Now I feel that I'm meant to start reading them. Sad news.

Back in the late 1970s I used to see him all the time at the No Name bar in Sausalito. Always sat alone ...

His SON OF THE MORNING STAR is one of the better Custer biographies around. R.I.P.
