Donald E. Westlake 1933-2009
Donald Westlake, prolific mystery writer, has died. He was 75. He wrote four books a year. That's right, four. Apparently that's why he used the pseudonyms, because publishers were leery of putting out so many books by the same author each year. I must admit that I've only really read and enjoyed one of his books, but I really liked it. Baby, Would I Lie? (1994) which I used to re-read regularly. Many of his books were made into movies.
