The Locus Awards are a science fiction and fantasy literary award polled by the readers of Locus magazine since 1971. Norwescon is proud to be a sponsor for the Locus Awards Weekend.
The five Philip K. Dick Award judges for distinguished science fiction published in paperback original format in the United States in the 2017 award year are Robert Onopa, Deborah J. Ross, James Stoddard, Amy Thomson, and Rick Wilber.
Congratulations to the winners of the Norwescon 40 Masquerade!
It was announced on Friday, April 14, 2017 at Norwescon 40, in SeaTac, Washington, that the winner for the distinguished original science fiction paperback published for the first time during 2016 in the U.S.A. is: THE MERCY JOURNALS by Claudia Casper (Arsenal Pulp Press). Special citation was given to: UNPRONOUNCEABLE by Susan diRende (Aqueduct Press).
This year’s Hugo Award nominations were announced today, and several of the nominees are past or current Norwescon attendees, either as Guests of Honor or as attending professionals (and sometimes both!).
The Norwescon team invites you to hang out in the Convention Lounge: the convention’s ‘living room’. The Convention Lounge offers a more comfortable, intimate space than our former Hospitality.
Brief tips for picking up your badge for Norwescon 40 as quickly and easily as possible!
Norwescon’s charity auction is always fun and exciting but this year’s event is going to be very special. In addition to all the amazing donations we receive each year from our dealers, artists, and members, we have received an amazing donation of art from the collection of the Rolls Family.
Are you a member of the convention that uses the Norwescon Cloak Room to store your belongings during the day? Well, we have some hard news to relay to you. At this time, we will be running the cloak room on a very limited basis during this year’s convention.
Every year Norwescon features a broad slate of artists, local organizations and clubs, vendors, and over two hundred pros and panelists. This year is no different, and now you can get a peek at who all you’ll be seeing in the halls and rooms of this year’s con!
The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) will host a grand opening celebration for the 20thanniversary of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame, featuring Trek Talks, live performances, special guests, and more.
Every day brings us a little bit closer to Norwescon 40, and while we still have a few finishing touches to put on our full programming schedule before it’s announced to the world, we’re happy to debut our Workshops and our Youth Programming!
As the title suggests, we’re looking for volunteers to step-up and help create mini-communities within our memberships. Whatever your passion, we’d love to have you volunteer to host a meet-up.
