Mr. Baxter's first professionally published short story appeared in 1987, and his first novel in 1991. He has been a full-time author since 1995. He is President of the British Science Fiction Association, and a Vice-President of the HG Wells Society.

Science Guest of Honor - Bridget Landry
Bridget Landry was educated as a chemist and planetary scientist, trained as an engineer, and has worked in spacecraft operations for more than 20 years. She has worked on the Hubble Space Telescope, the joint US-French oceanographic Earth-orbiter Topex, the (wildly successful!) Mars Pathfinder project, and the Cassini mission to Saturn. Ms. Landry is currently a team member of the Dawn mission, which begins a year-long orbital mission at the asteroid Vesta in mid-2011, then departs to rendezvous with and orbit the asteroid Ceres in 2015.

Norwescon is a science, science fiction and fantasy convention that takes place on Easter Weekend each year. We are an all-volunteer organization and always have room for more dedicated volunteers. Without members, though, there would be no reason to hold a convention; thank you for your support.
