Every year I look forward to attending reader/fan mystery conventions. Below is a partial list of 2018 conventions being held in the United States and abroad. You will always find me at two or more conventions each year. This year was the first time I attended more than four conventions. . .luckily they were more or less spaced apart. Is there a convention that you would like to attend?
