regional Science Fiction and Fantasy convention. Held over the April

guests and 2500 fans to the Seattle-Tacoma area.

68+ page souvenir will be printed in black ink on 70 lb. coated
offset and will feature a full color cover by Bob Eggleton, a color
section of artwork, and fiction.
program book is renowned for its heavy use of artwork throughout.
A notation with book title, author, and publisher are included with
each illustration when supplied.
Along with photographs
and biographies of the Guests of Honor there is also a large section
of photos and brief introductions of every attending author, publisher,
or other guest of Norwescon.
More than just
a publication of programs and times, the Norwescon program book
is a collector's item and is sold separately after the convention.

of the convention and the collectibility of the program book, your
advertising dollar will be well spent. Whether you are a publisher,
book dealer, store, convention, or club, advertising in the Norwescon
program will put you in front of the buyer's attention both during
