The once and future BoucherCon
Ruth Jurdan asked me to write a BoucherCon memory for the BoucherCon blog today.
This year, the annual mystery conference (named after writer and critic Anthony Boucher, thatâ€™s bow-cher) is in Baltimore, and the town is just Charmed to Death to welcome us all in.
Thereâ€™s been talk about organizing a LRK meet-up during the Con, which is October 9-12â€”Vicki has made a slot over at the Virtual Book club where people can set up meetings, if you want to check that out.
Ballots have just gone out for nominations for the Anthony awards for Best novel, Best first novel, Best paperback original, Best short story, Best critical/non-fiction work, the Special service award, and the new Best mystery web site/blog award. Register soon and you can nominate–although you can’t stick the LRK name up for anything except that last, since I had nothing new in 2007.
But lots of superb writers did, and this is your chance to put them on the final ballot, for voting during the conference itself.
See you in Baltimore!
