R.I.P. David Thompson of Murder By the Book

All of us at The Lineup are shocked and saddened to hear David Thompson of Houston's Murder By The Book died suddenly yesterday. David was the first bookseller to believe in The Lineup, and we had been in talks with his Busted Flush Press to help The Lineup gain greater distribution. I will pick up talks when the time is right with Tyrus Books, which had recently acquired BFP. I will also look to other distribution opportunities.

The Lineup #4 (2011) will be dedicated to David's memory and will include a poem by Ken Bruen recommended by David.
