The SFRevu trekked north from the DC area to attend Readercon 2009, which we'll be covering on Gayle's Blog and Ern's photographs as the con progresses. Check back during the con to see what we've added.

From official release/information:

Readercon is, depending on your point of view, either an annual literary conference (except it's infinitely more fun than that) or an annual science fiction convention (except we've stripped away virtually everything except talking about and buying books). In the course of its twenty years, it has become the standard bearer and role model for conventions that focus on the literature. A typical Readercon features well over 100 writers, editors, and critics (attracting prominent figures from Canada, the U.K., and occasionally even Australia) and more than 400 of their readers. Readercon is the only small convention regularly attended by such giants of literary sf as Samuel R. Delany, John Crowley, Barry N. Malzberg, and Jonathan Lethem.

Readercon 20 -- July 9-12, 2009
Burlington Marriott, Burlington, Massachusetts.

Guest of Honor:

    Elizabeth Hand & Greer Gilman
    Memorial Guest of Honor: Hope Mirrlees
