Although Bob finished his last book, Deja¬† Noir, and made it to one final writer’s conference, Creatures, Crimes, and Creativity in Baltimore, Maryland, over his birthday weekend September 13, he declined fairly quickly thereafter, and sadly succumbed to cancer this morning at 8:14.

He will live on in the books he so enjoyed writing, and when there’s news on his forthcoming Deja Noir, it will be posted here.

Thank you to all those who read, to all those who wrote, and to all who loved him. He will be missed.
