He served as the president of the Mystery Writers of America and was awarded their Grand Master Award as well as the Mystery Writers of Great Britain's Gold Dagger Award. He died in 1983.

Reviews

"'Archer in Memory' honors both the character and his creator... it reminds us that Macdonald's sleuth rose from troubled roots to become a good man, a saver of people no less lonely than he; and... recalls quite clearly why it is that The New York Times dubbed Ross Macdonald's stories 'the finest series of detective novels ever written by an American.'" --The Rap Sheet

"Archer fans are in for a treat.... Readers will gain a surprisingly full sense of the man from the collection.... Prose as sharp and durable as the detective's trademark charcoal-gray suits."--Booklist
