"The Golden Spiders" Reviewed by Anthony Boucher, November 15, 1953

This year's Bouchercon World Mystery Convention, named for the late Anthony Boucher (William Anthony Parker White), well-known writer and critic from the New York Times, will be held September 15 through 18 in St. Louis, Missouri. The prestigious Anthony Awards are given annually with the winners selected by the attendees of Bouchercon.

From "Criminals at Large, by Anthony Boucher, New York Times, November 15, 1953.

"A vicious racket concerning displaced persons, a nice puzzle in impersonation, a neatly logical denouement and Archie Goodwin's adept narration (a perfect example of the art which conceals art) add up to a highly professional and thoroughly satisfactory mystery."
