New Zealand novelist Nigel Cox died yesterday. From the Scoop obituary:

One of New Zealand's best writers, Nigel was recognised at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards on Monday evening when his novel Responsibility was named a runner-up for the Fiction Award. Nigel's eloquent and moving acceptance speech was met with a standing ovation from his family, friends and colleagues in the writing, publishing and bookselling community.

Author of five published novels, Waiting for Einstein, Dirty Work, Skylark Lounge, Tarzan Presley and Responsibility, Nigel had recently completed a wonderful new book called The Cowboy Dog which Victoria University Press are proud to publish later in the year.
