Bill Crider

If you haven’t already, please read this:

I am terribly saddened, as, I’m sure, will be all of Bill’s many, many friends and acquaintances. Of course we’ll miss the blog, but not nearly as much as the man.

Our prayers are with you Bill, perhaps there will be an improvement, a turnaround. We sure hope so. God loves you, and so do we.

    I think everyone who has ever had contact with Bill has been impressed by his warmth. generosity, encouragement, humor, and just plain sense of decency.

    Sadly, this is something that Bill must face on his own terms and all we can do is give him our support and love.

  2. I am heart-broken with the latest Bill Crider news. I was able to spend time with Bill at the BOUCHERCON in Toronto. And, a few weeks later, I hung out with Bill again at the World Fantasy Convention in San Antonio. I will cherish those memories.

  3. Such sad news. I only discovered Bill Crider and his work this year so my comfort will be the legacy of wonderful writing I’ve still yet to read.

    I am so saddened by this news. I too am new to Bill Crider’s books, although I followed his blog and reviews for years. I admire him and he has contributed so much.

    I’ve known Bill for 40 years and, unlike most of us, he never seems angry or out of sorts, only funny and generous and a great person to be around. This may sound like inside baseball but, in all the years of writing for DAPA-EM and various mystery publications, plus Patti Abbott’s Friday’s Forgotten Books, Bill is the only person who has never missed a single deadline or issue. And what he writes is always worth reading. More often than not he sends you out seeking whatever book or movie he is reviewing.

    We all know that life is not fair, but some blows are harder to take than others. This is a bad one.

    • Absolutely spot on, Jeff. I “met” Bill in the pages of MDM, then at cons and in DAPA-Em. The last time I (we) saw him was in San Francisco for the Bouchercon there. I was sick and missed his room party, which I regret, but we saw and spent time with them both several times. You always wish there had been more time.

      We know he has fought a brave fight, I guess it’s just time. So, so sad.
