BILL CRIDER goes to BOUCHERCON, etc. Part 13 (2016-17)

Bill passed away yesterday, leaving me incredibly sad. I began this series of posts as a way of celebrating his life, and will continue with this final collection of photos, followed by two days of Bill's music. No tribute to this man could ever be sufficient, but it's the best I can do. I'm going to miss the hell out of him.

Thank you for this. I love his books and stories and originally found him in The New Yorker Magazine.
