I have read many, many of his books. A wonderful body of work. RIP.

I also am a fan, though I found him late. Dick Francis is among the handful of mystery writers who taught me something about the craft. I'm so sorry he's gone and so grateful for his gifts.

Pepper Smith

I'm a long-time fan. He had an enormous influence on the choices I made as a writer. I'm glad that we have one more novel to look forward to.

Charles Finch

Devastated. One of my very favorite handful of authors - in any genre. Try Banker for an underrated classic of his.

Maroulla Savage

Great writer, have read many of his books. He was favorite of the Queen Mother, both as a jockey and writer. Rest in Peace

I've been a reader and fan since my high school days; a new Dick Francis novel was something I looked forward to every year for four decades. He's left us with a marvelous body of work that deserves re-reading.
