David Corbett said, among other things:
"The beauty of it (The Noircon conference) was its size, or lack of it. We were all arranged at tables in a space the size of a generous classroom, and the collegiality was impressive and inspiring."
----- David, thanks for that (Which I already knew) but also for your comprehensive digest of the conference. It's a conference that deserves more respect.
I was there in 2008, so I know the setting and all that. Not only that intimate but among the guests and the speakers were some of my favorites, all-time.
It was one of my best ever experiences at a conference.
I got to meet David Thompson in 2008, something I may had missed at a larger conferences.
And what noir and hard-boiled writer could fail to appreciate sharing a very small table with Vicki Hendricks, Megan Abbott and Christa Faust? I even bought Christa a drink--bottled water.
All set to go again in 2012 and I will make it this time.
