So which conference will you be at this weekend?

For me, the answer is neither, but I daresay most of the mystery community will be split between Seattle and Chicago for Left Coast Crime and Love is Murder, respectively. Expect lots of updates of the first conference from The Rap Sheet (and in the meantime, the Seattle Times’ crime fiction critic Adam Woog offers a preview of LCC coming attractions) while I suspect the Crimespree Gang will be checking in from the midwest.

And wherever you are, wish Steve Brewer a very, very happy birthday.
