2014 Colorado Book Award Finalist
Ed Quillen entertained Denver Post readers with his weekly columns for 26 years. Deeper into the Heart of the Rockies compiles the best from the height of his career on topics ranging from Colorado to small town life to national politics.
"He was a straight-shooter, a fact-checker, a proud wordsmith, a brilliant thinker, a touch of down-home Colorado the likes of which are rare." - The Denver Post Editorial Board
"He was a keen chronicler - a mountain-town crier, an unofficial state historian, and a self-described sloth. The first word that comes to mind to describe Ed is 'colorful, ' and I mean that as an absolute compliment." - Curtis Hubbard, Former State Editor of The Denver Post
"Ed Quillen was a character in the full sense of the word-and a wordsmith of the first order . . . Our world has lost a one-of-a-kind voice." - David Perkins, The Bloomsbury Review.
