OVERHEARD AT BOUCHERCON
i'm going to attempt to collect interesting snippets of conversation to post here once i get home. if you're attending bouchercon and want to add an overheard, please post it in the comment section!!
"Bouchercon, the Anthony Boucher Memorial World Mystery Convention, is an annual convention of creators and devotees of mystery and detective fiction. It is named in honour of writer, reviewerbouchercon.info and editor Anthony Boucher.
It is held annually, each year being hosted in a different city by a different group of volunteers. http://bouchercon.info/ is the main website for the convention, and each year's host puts together a website of their own.
People who attend are fans, authors, agents, booksellers, publishers and other people who read and enjoy mystery and crime fiction. The first one was held in Santa Monica, CA in 1970. The guest of honor was Robert Bloch of "Psycho" fame.
The standing commitee changes year to year being made up of people who have hosted and will host the convention, and three at large members who are voted in by the membership. (The membership is the attendees)
The standing committee is in charge of receiving and voting on bids for future sites for Bouchercon. Anyone is allowed to put in a bid."
overheard the night before i left home:
"Kierkegaard sure was a genius, i usually get so bored by philosophers but this dude was right one. Are you watching Top Model?"
