Bouchercon Update

We went to the closing brunch this morning, and I'm sure someone will be posting the Crimespree Award winners and the Anthony winners soon. If I'm at the computer, I'll link to them.

As for us, I got my e-mail from Continental telling me that I could check in on-line for my flight tomorrow, so I went through the process only to be told that check-in couldn't be completed. So I called Continental. After about half an hour on hold, I was told that nobody knew why I couldn't check in, but that I was welcome to try again. As you can imagine, I was thrilled with that answer. But I tried anyway. It didn't work, but then what would you expect? I may be stuck in San Francisco forever or until I can walk back to Texas. I suppose there are worse places to be stuck.

Bouchercon was, as always, great fun, and it was nice to see a special award presented to the late David Thompson for service to the crime fiction community. The award will be presented each year in David's memory. It's a great idea, I think.

This comports with all my experiences with Continental.

We were able to check in on line with Southwest, but after arriving at the airport found our flight delayed a couple of hours - the plane to Austin was delayed much longer - and got home late but happy for the time at Bouchercon and to be home.
