Guests of Honor

No Left Coast Crime would be complete with a celebration of the fabulous authors who keep us up at night, and the fans who love them. At Crimelandia, we are thrilled to recognize the amazing talents of Chelsea Cain and Ridley Pearson, and to be fêted and toasted by the delightful Gar Anthony Haywood. The fans we honor are the Friends of Mystery, who’ve been an integral part of the mystery community in the Pacific Northwest for more than 25 years.
