9781590582237: Heirs of Anthony Boucher, The

This history of mystery fandom is called The Heirs of Anthony Boucher because it was to Boucher's mystery review column in the New York Times Book Review that fans turned, before what Lachman calls ""The Fan Revolution"" was launched in 1967. In a literary domino effect, Boucher's column led to the first fan magazine, The Armchair Detective, and Boucher encouraged and reviewed it. Boucher's sudden death in 1968 was a shock to mystery fans, but everything they have done since is part of Anthony Boucher's legacy.

Review:

""It is, after all, mystery fandom that keeps alive all those great
names from yesterday while discovering the new classic writers of our own day. With this book Marv Lachman has done an amazing job of chronicling it all, from the earliest Sherlockians through the popular fanzines and mystery conventions to the latest internet websites. Read it, and rejoice!""
--Edward D. Hoch, MWA Grandmaster Awardee
