Norwescon 2016 Part I

I went to Norweson again this year. It’s the biggest science fiction/fantasy convention in the Northwest with a large emphasis on writing. I saw a couple of familiar faces. The artist Julie Dillon was there.

She showed us slides of her fantasy art. I nominated her for best artist in the upcoming Hugo Awards.

I was getting ready to take a picture of a Dalek when Torrey Stenmark walked by.

This reinforced my previous theory that if you stay in one place long enough, the whole world passes by. She reprised her floor costume of Ms. Marvel from last year.

A new face was Adam Rakunas. He is the author of Windswept, a nominee for the Philip K. Dick Award.

Although his paperback novel didn’t win, I rather enjoyed his live reading of an excerpt. I thought I detected an element of Max Headroom in his style, and when I asked him about it afterwards, he said that might have been swirling around in part of his brain.

That looks so cool! It would be awesome to meet my favorite authors, but unless there's an Egypt-Con, it's just a dream. Thanks for sharing the pics, so I get to see what a Con is like. Have a great weekend! :)
