I always learn something unexpected from your postings. This time I learned of Donald Westlake.

And another gem: the description of his writing along with the fact that he follows 'the most important of Elmore Leonard's ten rules of writing: "Leave out the part that readers tend to skip." He lays it on, but lightly, like an expert lock-picker.'

What are the other Elomore Leonard rules I wonder? I'm off to first search your postings to see if you listed them here and it not, then a plunge into the relevant waters of Google.

Thanks...as always.

Keep creating,
Mike
