Another Sad Farewell

This is most unfortunate news, delivered by Sarah Weinman:
Dorothy Salisbury Davis, whose short story “Lost Generation” was reprinted in Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives, died last night in Palisades, NY. She was 98 years old. I don’t have a lot of information to share yet, and will update accordingly as I learn more, but understand a memorial service is being planned for the fall.
Janet Rudolph adds a bit of biographic information:
She was an MWA [Mystery Writers of America] Grand Master and six-time Edgar nominee. Ms. Davis wrote 17 crime novels, three historical novels and numerous short stories. She served as president of MWA and was one of the founders of Sisters in Crime. She was presented with Lifetime Achievement Awards from Bouchercon and Malice Domestic.
Our sympathies go out to Ms. Davis’ family.
