A little off topic since none of these writers are hard boiled - but Chassie West, Paula Woods, Frankie Bailey, Eleanor Taylor Bland, and Grace F. Edwards were scheduled to be at Bouchercon. I didn't see Grace F. Edwards but I spotted West, Woods, Bailey and Bland at various times. Not attending: Charlotte Carter, Ardella Garland, Penny Mickelbury, Barbara Neely, Pamela Thomas-Graham, Valerie Wilson Wesley - among others. The African American Mystery Page lists titles and authors.
