I am extremely interested in attending some conferences and symposiums centered on Detective and Mystery novels. I have found a few that have already taken place this year and one being held in Canada early next year. I would like to know if anyone knows of any still to come this year and/or in the spring. I would love to hang out with some fellow devotees of this genre for discussion, rants, raves, and so on. I am mainly interested in academically centered events but will take the occassional "for fun" as long as it's not fan fic. Had a really bad experience with that over the summer at a Harry Potter symposium.
