polling the hive mind

It appears that I’ll be going to Readercon, barring rising Creeks, etc. As I’ve not been before (and am generally rubbish at Cons in general but really want to go to this one because it is about books rather than media (not that there’s anything wrong with media)), anyone have any advice about this Con in particular?

I do, for the record, have a handle on public behavior in general; just wondering if there are specifics to keep in mind about this shindig. I suspect I might not be the only one who is new to ReaderCon, too. We should form a support group and wear noob beanies.

Thanks for any hints the more experienced hands may have.

    The only absolute is to leave the costumes at home, because that’s something that is very heavily discouraged. Back in 1999, one bozo shaved his head and wandered around the convention dressed as Hunter S. Thompson, and they still talk about that loser.

    Other than that? It’s open season. Just watch out for the whitehaired guy with the carnivorous plants. He can literally talk people to death.

    Carnivorous? Maybe the deadly-dialog dude is merely cover for a hungry, homicidal herb? Anyone report hearing selections from Little Shop of Horrors playing nearby?
