Robert B. Parker - you will be missed


When I read the news I had to read it four times to make sure I read it right. I just couldn't accept or believe it. I wouldn't be able to enjoy Robert Parker's fantastic prose anymore. His Spenser novels were the reason I became interested in crime writing. Without Spenser there would be no Noah Milano. There wouldn't even be this site.
Not only was he a great influence on my writing, but his sense of humor AND sense of honor greatly influenced the way I decided to live my life.
He will be missed, but with the legacy he left he will never be forgotten.

I'm not a writer but am a huge Spenser & RBP fan. I just today read of his death and just wrote on my blog too. We lost a friend.


I'm going to follow you if it's ok. I am a great mystery fan as well.

I've long been a fan of Robert B. Parker's book. The mystery world has truly lost of the greats.
