RIP, Tom Piccirilli

Apologies for this being so short.  I am on the road and posting from my phone.  Ed Gorman is reporting that Richard Chizmar informed him this morning that Tom Piccirilli has died. Piccirilli had been battling brain cancer for several years.  I first read Piccirilli a couple of years ago and liked what I’d read.  There are at least three of his works in my TBR pile.  Adventures Fantastic extends deepest condolences to Mr. Piccirilli’s family, friends, and fans.

      I’m sure you will. (Have a great time, BTW. We expect a full con report.)

      I’ve read little of his horror, other than a short story and a pirate tale Cast in Dark Waters he collaborated on with Ed Gorman, which I loved. His stand-alone horror didn’t look to be my cup of tea. His crime novel The Last Kind Words blew me away. There is a sequel to that one as well as an associated short story that are in the stack.
