The passing of L. Rust Hills

Readers of this journal know that L. Rust Hills' book Writing In General and the Short Story In Particular has been a key handbook for me as I develop as a writer. It's a terrific combination of analysis and practicality, and he made many other contributions to our literary culture besides that book.

Hills died earlier this week. His obit in the New York times is here.
