Robert B. Parker 1932-2010
Besides the Spenser series, he also created the adventures of Sunny Randall and Jesse Stone. Spenser was made into the ABC TV series “Spenser: For Hire” in the 1980s and even spawned a spin-off. He also finished Raymond Chandler’s unfinished Philip Marlowe novel and even wrote a sequel to “The Big Sleep.”
The prolific award-winning writer is said to have died at his desk, at work. The man and his legacy of work will be remembered for years to come. He’ll be missed.
