A New Collection Of Elmore Leonard Stories To Be Published


“Charlie Martz and Other Stories,” will be published on June 16, and feature 15 of Leonard’s stories, 11 of which have never been published before. Included are stories that introduce some of Leonard’s recurring characters in later works, such as lawman Charlie Martz and former matador Eladio Montoya.

The short stories “reveal a writer in transition, exploring new voices and locations,” the publisher said.

The stories were penned early in Leonard’s career when he was writing Westerns in the 1950s after he gave up his advertising agency job. He moved on to crime and suspense novels such as “Get Shorty,” and “Out of Sight,” both of which were made into films.

During his prolific career, Leonard published 47 books, three of which were the inspiration for FX network’s hit TV show “Justified,” now in its sixth and final season.

Leonard, who spent much of his life in Detroit, died in August 2013 at age 87 after suffering a stroke.
