“Fill a hotel with few thousand socially-challenged introverts, folks for whom the ‘I’d rather be reading’ T-shirt was created, and force them to spend a long autumn weekend together, and what have you got? Bouchercon—and you’d be a fool to miss it.”

~Lawrence Block

“At Bouchercon I discovered a wonderful, supportive, fun, dynamic and exciting world, filled with fascinating, sometimes slightly crazy, people. It’s the Grand Central Station of crime writing and reading. I adore Bouchercon.”

~Louise Penny

“Like a holiday weekend with your family – except you get to choose this family, and it’s 2000 strong.”

~Lee Child

“If you’re a crime fiction addict, there is no better place to find your next fix.”

~Karin Slaughter

“Love contemporary mysteries? You can meet your whole bookshelf at Bouchercon. They’ll even let you buy them a drink.”

~Margaret Maron

“I walked into Bouchercon Austin not knowing a soul, contemplated leaving after my panel, and heading back home. Glad I didn’t. I made friends that weekend, both fellow writers and readers, that have become as close to me as family”

~Reed Farrel Coleman

“Bouchercon is magic! And here’s my absolute promise: You will meet a new soulmate, you will discover a remarkable book, you will chat with a beloved author, you will have a life-changing experience. It happens every time. See you there–of course!”

~Hank Phillippi Ryan
