Elmore Leonard wrote some of the best bad guys, and he wrote a lot. He was in the process of writing his 46th novel when he passed away from complications following a stroke. Leonard wrote the stories that would later go on to become movies like "Get Shorty" and FX's "Justified".

Craig Fahle talked with Leonard and his son in June of 2009 about the pairs career and the influence fiction writing has had on their interactions.
