Anthony Price Cause of death – what happened?

  • Date of death : September , 2021
  • Death Age : 90 -year-old
  • cause of death : unconfirmed

As a cub reporter on the Oxford Times in the early 1950s, Anthony Price, who has died aged 90, was asked if he fancied reviewing a book for its sister paper, the Oxford Mail. It was, he was told, “only a children’s book but it’s by a local author”. The local author turned out to be a Prof JRR Tolkien and the book was The Fellowship of the Ring. Price’s career as a reviewer was off to an auspicious start.

He was to specialise in crime fiction, and his reviews in the Oxford Mail made him one of the most highly regarded commentators on, and judges of, the genre, so much so that in 1968 the publisher Livia Gollancz asked him to consider writing a history of the crime novel. Price turned down the offer, feeling it would involve too much work, but added he did have an idea of his own for a novel, if Gollancz might be interested.
