Malice Domestic: See You Next Year

COVID-19 claims yet another victim: this year’s Malice Domestic conference, which was to have taken place from April 30 to May 3 in Bethesda, Maryland. Earlier this month, the event had been postponed, as a result of the virus pandemic. But a new note posted on the convention’s Web site reads:
After careful consideration, the Malice Domestic board has reached the decision to cancel this year’s Malice. We had hoped to be able to postpone this year’s event, but given the uncertainty we face, the most prudent decision at this time is to cancel this year’s event and focus our efforts on a spectacular Malice Domestic 33, which will be
April 29-May 2, 2021.
Details regarding this cancellation can be found here.

In Reference to Murder adds: “Despite not having an in-person event this year, the Agatha Awards will go on, with electronic voting to take place on the dates it would have during the conference. Winners will then be announced during a special live streamed event.”
