On the passing of Brian Garfield, award-winning author and screenwriter

We're very sad to share the news that author Brian Garfield died on Dec. 29. Garfield was an award winning author, screenwriter, and film producer. He wrote more than 70 novels, a mix of Westerns, mystery, and non-fiction, including Death Wish and Hopscotch.

Funeral arrangements are pending, with a memorial service to be announced. He is survived by his wife, Bina, his cousins Gywnne Glenn, Rebecca and Elizabeth Allen, and numerous Garfield cousins. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to be sent to The Wildlife Waystation, Sylmar, Calif.

Brian was a fantastic writer and we were honored to publish an extensive portion of his backlist, which you can find here
