Reviews of

The Heirs of Anthony Boucher

“Reviewing the first edition of this unique contribution to mystery history in issue #93, I called the author ‘one of the best and certainly the most prolific fan critic of mystery and detective fiction…[and] the ideal writer for his subject.’ All that continues to be true, and the new edition, besides having a better cover and layout, adds considerable information on activity in the years since 2005. Especially useful are the summaries of organizations, conventions, and magazines.”
