News: Mystery Fans and Writers in Seattle for LCC

Alan Woog, writing for The Seattle Times, reports that the annual Left Coast Crime (LCC) convention hits Seattle this weekend. LCC is an annual gathering of mystery fans and writers, a regional alternative to big, international mystery conferences like Bouchercon. LCC welcomes people from all over but emphasizes the Western states. Los Angeles writer Gary Phillips, author of Ivan Monk series, is the event's toastmaster.

Starting today and continuing through Sunday, some 600 fans, writers and assorted other denizens of the mystery/crime/thriller world will converge on the to city to schmooze, snag autographed books and attend such events as an after-hours Seattle Underground tour and an auction (benefiting, among other things, the Seattle Public Library Foundation). They're also attending panels on a wide variety of grisly, educational and/or fun topics.
