Clearly written by someone who's been to more than a few cons and enjoys them, Murdercon was a fun read which I was lucky enough to receive as a "lovely parting gift" when I was eliminated from the "Win Tom Whitmore's Books" panel at Denvention.

The mystery is pretty thin; what I found most interesting was the atmosphere, especially all the details of 1982 which just aren't the same any more (telephone credit cards rather than cellphones; IBM Selectric typewriter rather than a PC; a program printed in "horrible computer letters"). And then there are the things which ARE the same -- arrogant fans, weird programs, a masquerade, filking, and other fun. ( )
