Would you like to help plan, organize, and create the Pacific Northwest’s premier science-fiction and fantasy convention? April’s Norwescon 40 post-con meeting will be held Saturday, May 13, 2017.
It’s once again time for our post-convention roundup of links! Over the past few weeks, we’ve been keeping an eye out for your blog posts, photo sets, and videos from Norwescon 40 to see what all you were saying. Here’s what we found!
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!
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.
A few important updates from our hotel liaison regarding the room cancelation deadline, room availability, and our overflow hotel just down the road.
