RIP William Goldman: WRITER


There are all kinds of writers. Novelists. Screenwriters. Memoirists. Playwrights. Children's Book Authors. Short Story Writers. William Goldman was all of the above. Goldman died November 15th, 2018 in Manhattan from pneumonia, a complication of colon cancer. He was 87 years old. 


"Life isn't fair. It's just fairer than death, that's all."

~William Goldman



He's the author of 16 novels and 34 screenplays counting scripts for Marathon Man, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Misery,  Harper and All the Presidents Men among them. 

And the lovely Princess Bride, based on his own novel. 

With thanks and remembrance for a massive contribution to the world of film and literature. And for all of us wannabe writers out there, it's important to note he wrote eighteen screenplays that were never produced. 

As You Wish!
