A Tour of Bouchercon: San Francisco

Last weekend the mother of all crime fiction conferences was held in San Francisco. Dubbed "Bouchercon" to honor Anthony Boucher, a crime fiction writer and reviewer who scribbled for the San Francisco Chronicle and The New York Times, this year's edition of the annual conference drew nearly 1,400 readers, authors, publishers, agents and booksellers.

The slide show has photos of some of the big guns in the author category who made an appearance.
