Mystery Fan Conventions

Mystery Fan conventions can be a great way to meet your favorite author, get introduced to new authors and even meet fellow mystery fans. I've outlined the big ones that I've been to here for 2018, so you can begin planning a great year. 

First off, is Left Coast Crime. This conference focuses on authors and fans from the Left Coast of the country and this year it's in Reno, NV from March 22-25. Guests of Honor are Naomi Hirahara and William Kent Krueger. The toastmaster is Todd Borg. And the Ghost of Honor is Mark Twain (played by McAvoy Layne). 

In late April we have the Malice Domestic convention focuses on traditional mysteries. Here's all the details for Malice Domestic in Maryland, April 27-29.

Thrillerfest, which as you might expect, focuses on thrillers. It runs in New York City at the Grand Hyatt from July 10-14 and this year the Thrillermaster is George RR Martin with the Silver Bullet Award going to James Rollins. 

Bouchercon 2018 will be in St Petersburg, Florida, September 6-9. They have a great slate of honorees (see below). Including Ian Rankin, Karin Slaughter and Fan Guest of Honor, Judy Bobalik.
