Dick Francis

Seems like, these days, I am doing more blogging on losses in the field of literary giants than on actual books or movies. At least to me. Now I have to step up to the keyboard and write a remembrance for Dick Francis. Do I think this man was a genius? Well, yeah- how else to explain that an author took someone like me and actually engaged me, completely, not in one or two books which have strains of horseracing plot running throughout, but, scores of 'em? And don't even get me started on the ones that made it onto the big and little screen.
Mr. Francis, for Sid Halley alone, you treated us to a wondrous and unique world. Thanks for the decades of eclectic, mysterious and engaging stories. You will be missed.
