By popular demand, Elmore Leonard's official site has once again posted the master's classic New York Times essay, "Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing: Easy on the Adverbs, Exclamation Points and Especially Hooptedoodle."

Mr. Leonard is, of course, the legendary author of such crime fiction classics as Get Shorty, Maximum Bob and Out of Sight. He was recently awarded the 2006 Cartier Diamond Dagger by The Crime Writers’ Association.
