John A. Williams has passed away.

I never have even had heard of this guy. But here is an obit for him. If I have time I'll find some old book covers. (A few days pass...)

Actually, now that I've read up on him I can see why his works weren't more widely distributed. It's not just his critique of Martin Luther King, which would seem to have some validity, but  one or two of his books seem to be embittered tirades against a publishing industry that hates black people. I can relate. I ordered two of his books. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy them. Or at least understand them.
