Feb. 19-22 in Monterey, CA
Early registrants for Left Coast Crime 2004 not only save (cost is $150 vs. $175 after October 20) but also get first consideration for panel slots.
The LCC convention for mystery authors and aficionados includes a variety of special events: Opening Reception at the Monterey Aquarium; Noir Film Night with Eddie Muller; Award and Guest of Honor special luncheon; Continental Breakfast daily; Bookbag and free books; the Dealers Book Room (where you can find great books); plus the opportunity to meet fans, writers, editors, agents, publishers in fantastic Monterey, one of the most beautiful sites in America.
And, there’s more. There will be several special publications available only to registered participants: Program book; book of original short stories written for LCC by guests of honor Walter Mosley, Sharan Newman, Judy Greber (Gillian Roberts) and Richard Lupoff; Bibliography of attending authors; and pocket program.
“This material alone typically is well worth the price of admission to serious mystery fans and collectors,” notes Ken Fermoyle, West Coast editor of The Standard. “The convention also offers a prime opportunity for book signings by a large and varied group of mystery authors. As for booksellers, the event is so popular that booth space typically is booked solid a year in advance, though there may be an outside chance of openings created by cancellations.”
