An email from "MaggieMay" on the "For Mystery Addicts" (4MA) Yahoo mail list passes along the sad news that Enid Schantz of the Rue Morgue Press and Bookshop has passed away. According to the post, she had been suffering from cancer and had been on hospice care.
As readers of this site probably are aware, Enid and her husband, Tom, were tireless workers on behalf of traditional and classic mysteries. I would guess that nearly half of the more than 200 books I have reviewed here have been published by their Rue Morgue Press, and their quarterly catalog is a reader's delight. I'm sure my readers will join in offering condolences to Tom Schantz on his loss.
