Oct. 11, 1925), American novelist & screenwriter, died on August 20.  Leonard was best known for writing crime fiction:  fast-paced novels about ex-cons, aspiring kidnappers, gun dealers and loan sharks, and the world-weary lawmen who chase them, often as not shaking their heads over how damned dumb criminals can be.  For more about Leonard, his style, and best stuff, click on the link.
