Tony Hillerman

Edgar Award-winning author Tony Hillerman died this past week at the venerable age of 83. Hillerman wrote seventeen novels featuring the Navajo detectives Leaphorn & Chee, brought an awareness to modern Native American culture and society, and won every major accolade that there is for mystery writing, but I’ve always loved him for his fantastic author photo. Just cinch that belt around your waist – we don’t use belt loops out here on the reservation.

    A little respect for the dead please, sir. If Hillerman were alive he’d unbuckle and give you the strapping of your life.
