I am interested in finding out about local (VA, MD, DC, NJ) murder mystery weekends. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, I would appreciate the input.

I've been thinking about this for a while. It seems to me that a lot of people visit the mysterynet site and The Case so why not organise a mysterynet convention.

OK, you're probably all thinking - bad idea but just wait a second. The Case seems to have a lot of contact in the trade (as it were) so we stand a reasonable chance of getting speakers and I'd love to see some of the people I've been talking to IRL (in real life).

So how about it guys? (That is mysterious guys that run these places.) What are the odds on Mysterynet Con '99?

any information about mystery convention in Washington D.C. in April?

Check out the Malice Domestic site. I don't remember to address now, but if you look in the area called Getting Published, Christina gave me information on a writing contest. The address she gave me happened to be on the Malice site, and I browsed through it and found info on who was going to be there, how to make reservations, etc.

Some representatives were at the last Bouchercon in Monterey, and we'll continue to participate in conventions when possible. Whether we'll start our own convention, only time will tell-- we won't rule it out.

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Does anybody have any information regarding mystery conventions in the Austin area?

Andi Shechter - 07:41pm Mar 9, 1998 PST(#11 of 86)

Thanks to Barbara for the welcome_and_for knowing my column! And yes, emailing me w/news of events would be most appreciated. Keep in mind, I tend to list "conventions" over "conferences. By this, I mean events aimed at the entire mystery community (fans, readers, wrtiers, booksellers), rather than events that are primarily writer's events or "how to" workshops. I will say that for those of you asking about cons in specific places - keep in mind that there are less than a dozen mystery conventions a year.There are a few that stay put - Malice in DC, Magna in Muncie, Cluefest in Texas and Sleuthfest (primarily a writer's conference) in Ft. Lauderdale.

BP's writer's conference has garnered raves since it began. It _is_ however, an event for would be writers, not a fannish convention. The bookstore, by the way is the only one I know of that offers royalties for _used_ book sales.
