Bouchercon Dallas Anthony Awards Nominees graphic

They are named after the highly-regarded and legendary mystery reviewer for the New York Times, Anthony Boucher -- whose last name inspired the name of the con itself! At this year's 50th Anniversary  Bouchercon held recently, the winners were announced at the Awards dinner -- and our friend Lori Rader-Day won for the book we'll be reading next year: Under a Dark Sky! Congratulations to her and to all the nominees and winners. Click on a book's cover to link to our catalog's copy of the book!
