Stuart Ross posted a note on his blog that infamous Toronto writer Crad Kilodney died on Monday, as reported to him by lorette c. luzajic. When people talk about how Ross sold thousands of books on the streets of Toronto in the 1980s, he was taking a page from Crad Kilodney. Still, anything I've heard of Kilodney is second-hand, so I'll defer to notes on Kilodney by others, such as this one by Jay MillAr from January, a piece by David Chilton from April, a piece from Bookslut from 2008, and this anonymous piece from 2005. He was legendary.
At his request, The Crad Kilodney Literary Foundation was launched on Tuesday.
