Spenser creator Robert B. Parker dies

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Cambridge (Mass.)-based writer Robert B. Parker at the age of 77. Over 37 novels featuring Boston P.I. Spenser, Parker rejuvenated the hardboiled detective novel. He also wrote series featuring Sunny Randall and Jesse Stone, westerns featuring Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, as well as young adult and non-fiction pieces.
His most recent Spenser novel is The Professional, and Split Image, his new Jesse Stone novel, is due out Feb. 1.
Parker was a remarkable writer and will be sorely missed.
