Talk:Anthony Boucher

Please check the sentence Boucher was born as William Anthony Parker White in Oakland, California and went to college there at USC for correctness. I am not sure if the as is set correctly. The sentence sounded pretty wrong without it, thats why I set it. ReneS 20:54, 2004 Jan 15 (UTC)]

No, it's fine without the as. TheMadBaron 21:28, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Birth name & pseudonyms[edit]

Since Anthony Boucher is the pseudonym, I felt his birth name should be on the same line of text. I also moved the photo to External links. -- Michael David 22:55, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

It might be worth noting Boucher's pen name as a critic for the New York Times was "Newgate Calendar".

Anthony Boucher, mystery writer and editor who served as the New York Times Book Review`s first ``Newgate Calendar`` mystery critic.

The Casebook of Gregory Hood[edit]

Please note that I have edited _The Casebook of Gregory Hood_ by Boucher and Green for Crippen and Landru, Publishers. Whenever this article is updated, I suggest this collection of 14 radio plays be added. --Joe R. Christopher —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:28, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

It's been added, as well as a link to the radio programmes themselves. Since Wikipedia is "the encyclopedia that anyone can edit", and you know the volume best, please feel free to add items like this yourself in the future. Accounting4Taste:talk 16:08, 20 October 2009 (UTC)


Another victim of tobacco?Lestrade (talk) 23:36, 14 July 2010 (UTC)Lestrade

Probably; so many of his contemporaries were. (One of the biggest problems for a time-traveller attending a pre-1970 SF convention, I'm assured, would be the ubiquity and intensity of tobacco use.) --Orange Mike | Talk 18:21, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

A Treasury of Great Science Fiction[edit]

I am proposing that this title be added to the list of Books. This was THE anthology that predates all of the other Hugo Award/ SF Hall of Fame collections representing the best of Science Fiction to the end of the 1950's.

Political Activism[edit]

In the short paragraph right before the section on his death, he is said to be a political activist.

There are a lot of possibilities here --- could somebody who knows please write a sentence or two about what his causes were?

TIA if this is possible.
