The judges of the 2011 Philip K. Dick Award and the Philadelphia SF Society, along with the Philip K. Dick Trust, are pleased to announce seven nominated works that comprise the final ballot for the award.
We’ve rolled out a number of updates to the website over the holiday weeks. If you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook, or Google Plus, you may already know some of this — but you might not know all of it! So, here’s what we rolled out over the past week or so….
Would you like to help plan, organize, and create the Pacific Northwest’s premier science-fiction and fantasy convention? January’s Norwescon 35 planning meeting will be held Saturday, January 7th, 2012.
Norwescon 35, in conjunction with the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport, is pleased to announce that Maxi’s Lounge will be open Friday and Saturday nights for the exclusive use of Norwescon 35 attendees.
The Norwescon room block has been sold out since early November — but if you missed out on staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport, this doesn’t mean you won’t be able to stay close to the convention! In addition to the already announced Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center, Norwescon has made arrangements with three other nearby hotels.
Norwescon wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you wonderful fans helping to spread the word — and trust us, that’s very appreciated! To that end, then…here’s this year’s flyer!
This year, the piece chosen is Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio’s “The 13th Reality”, the alternate cover illustration for The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters by James Dashner. Be sure to pick up your shirt at the t-shirt booth in the hotel lobby this April during Norwescon 35!
A change is coming in the way we reserve rooms for Norwescon. It is a significant change for our members but we believe it will help us make more convention rooms available for our members at the cheaper convention rate.
Norwescon 35 is pleased to offer our annual Guest of Honor Awards Banquet on April 5th, 2012, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM in Grand Ballroom 2. This is a great way for our members to start off the convention by wining and dining with our Guests of Honor. Ticket and menu information can be found on the Banquet page.
We have just opened up applications for the Norwescon 35 Artists’ Alley!
Would you like to help plan, organize, and create the Pacific Northwest’s premier science-fiction and fantasy convention? December’s Norwescon 35 planning meeting will be held Saturday, December 10th, 2011.
Two updates in the world of Norwescon 35 have manifested recently: more info on our dances, and our debut on Google+!
We’ve just received an update from the Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center with some special incentives for Norwescon attendees!
As of yesterday morning, the Norwescon room block at the DoubleTree hotel is sold out. Never fear, however! We are in the process of working with other hotels in the area, and will be updating the hotel page with information as we receive it.
We’ve just posted the Single Pattern Contest info and rules!
Still thinking about reserving a suite for parties or larger get-togethers during Norwescon 35? Don’t put it off for long! Suites are reserving fast — right now, all Lakeside and Presidential suites are _sold out_! Parlor and Family suites are still available.
The Norwescon Program Book is distributed to 3,000+ members during the convention each year. This approximately 75 page document is produced on high-gloss paper in color and black and white and features information about our Guests of Honor, panelists, pros, the programming schedule for the convention, artwork and more. Ad space is available in the Norwescon 35 Program Book.
As of November 1st, we are now accepting suite reservations for Norwescon 35!
