This truly saddens me.  Leonard was hands-down one of my all-time favorite writers and one of my biggest influences as a writer myself.  His crime thrillers always sparkled with original, verbose characters and subversive wit and more of his work was adapted to film and/or TV than just about any other author short of Stephen King.  We lost one of the great ones today, folks.

RIP, Elmore.

RIP Elmore Leonard.

He certainly was a very prolific and well loved author. I haven't read any of his books, but plan on doing so eventually. I have "Get Shorty" somewhere in the back of my closet. I may have to dig that out and read it in a few weeks.
