It's been a couple weeks now since Robert B. Parker died at his desk writing. I have thought of his loss frequently since it happened. Frequently is a lot in this day of fifteen minute fame. I looked forward to his two books each year and the further adventures of Spenser and his extended family from Susan to the guys at the police station or to a new cowboy saga to Holly and her new beat with the company. Here is a very nice remembrance by Steven Axelrod I found on the Salon blog. Parker had a lot of fans, Steven was one of them.
