Norwescon is a proud sponsor of the 2013 Locus Awards Banquet being held here in Seattle. The Locus Awards are an annual set of literary awards presented by Locus: The Magazine of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Field. The award winners are selected from a poll of the magazine’s readers. These awards were first presented in 1971 and Norwescon is proud to be part of this long standing tradition.
The awards are presented at an annual banquet currently held in Seattle. This event draws not only many local professionals but also some of the most prestigious writers and editors in the fields of science fiction and fantasy. This year’s awards will be hosted by Hugo and Nebula award winning author Connie Willis. In honor of Locus founder Charles N. Brown, Hawaiian shirts are worn by all attendees–those brave enough not to do so may find themselves being roasted upon the fires of wit and witticism, as Mr. Neil Gaiman and others have discovered!
The Locus Awards welcome all fans of the science fiction community. For information on how to attend this exciting, lively event and show Northwest community support, please visit the 2013 Locus Awards webpage.
