Norwescon Wrapup

A Northwest tradition as old as I am!

One of the longest running continues regional fantasy and science fiction conventions, Norwescon 35,  is a 4 day convention in Seatac. As it was in a hotel, there seemed to be events running nearly 24 hours a day, I was also able to enjoy the convention. The rooms and panels had staggered opening times so I was able to see their art show which opened at 10 am (the dealer’s room opened at 11 am) There were many fine artists in the art show.While this is traditionally a writer’s conference, they had a variety of panels from everything neuroscience, planets, space travel, author readings, and all types of other things. Of course, I spent most of it in the dealer’s room promoting Other Systems with a few other small presses nearby including…

Three Ravens Books where CFO Matt was promoting Muffy Morrigan newest release: The Sail Weaver. Muffy was in attendance.

Hard Limits Press newest release The Wicked Instead by Vivien Weaver. Vivien was there signing and answering questions.

Across from us was Christopher Baldwin promotion his webcomic Spacetrawler.

Even though I am a new author (one week and counting…) the other authors around me were very supportive. I got my first complement on my novel though it was hidden in with a dagger. Vivien, Muffy, and Christopher were all encouraging. I also saw other writers get a dagger-encased complement and was glad to see that I am not the only author that obsesses over storytelling devices.

There were lots of fun costumes. My favorite was a steampunk Victorian lady pushing around a carriage covered in gears and other things, then when you looked inside there was a stuffed cthlhu in a diaper holding a pacifier. Sorry, I was running to get coffee and I did not get a photograph.
