Mystery writers, fans head to Cleveland for big Bouchercon convention

The Plain Dealer: This week, the Bouchercon convention—the world’s largest, longest-running conference of mystery writers and readers—will come to Cleveland, featuring talks by some of the genre’s biggest authors. English professor William Marling, who specializes in detective novels, will attend for the first time. “I came in through the side door,” he said. “I’m not the person who has piles of detective novels stacked by the bed.”
