Readercon is, depending on your point of view, either an annual literary conference (except it's infinitely more fun than that) or an annual science fiction convention (except we've stripped away virtually everything except talking about and buying books). In the course of its nearly twenty years, it has become the standard bearer and role model for conventions that focus on the literature of the genre. A typical Readercon features over 100 writers, editors, and critics (attracting prominent figures from Canada, the U.K., and occasionally even Australia) and more than 400 of their readers. Readercon is the only small convention regularly attended by such giants of literary SF as Samuel R. Delany, John Crowley, Barry N. Malzberg, and Jonathan Lethem.
