Some not so very recent, but still interesting news on Elmore Leonard :
Fits his novel 'The Switch' might be adapted for film says the Guardian,
and then the 'missing link' in the Carl Webster saga will be filled this autumn when 'Comfort to the Enemy' will be published as a trade papaberback, after its initial publication as a series in the NYT.

Just got this email in :
"I've just been asked by his estate to deliver the sad news that trumpeter/composer/educator Bill Dixon died last night in his sleep at his longtime home in North Bennington, Vermont after a two-year illness. He was 84 years old. Dixon is survived by his longtime partner Sharon Vogel and two children. Information about a memorial service and where to send donations in his name is forthcoming. An official obituary is in the works and will be available shortly."
