Earlier this week, Bill Crider, one of my longest friends in mystery fandom, posted what is probably going to be his final blog entry.

Here’s the link: https://billcrider.blogspot.com/2017/12/update.html

I’ve known Bill for almost 40 years, but we’ve met in person only once. I’m not sure of the date, but if there was a Bouchercon held in Washington DC around 1980, that’s when it was.

There have been 115 comments of good wishes so far following this last post of his, including mine. There will probably be more. A nicer, more liked person in fandom you will probably never find.
