PK DICK AWARD TIE SCANDAL!

Readers demand to know whose sister got kissed

Congratulations to two Philip K. Dick award winners: Adam Troy Castro, for Emissaries from the Dead (EOS, pub.) and David Walton, for Terminal Mind (Meadowhawk Books, pub.).

WAIT A MO, WE HAVE TO RUN THIS ONE STRAIGHT

Dammit

Contrary to errant reports, drugs (over-the-counter or otherwise) ARE NOT available in the Norwescon Office. Please accept our apologies for that misinformation. However, the hotel gift shop does carry a selection of OTC medications in individual-dosages packages, should such be needed.

OKAY, THAT'S OVER

Back to business, by which we mean today's parties

Tai Pan Club Meeting: Tower 410, 4pm

San Jose in 2011: (Westercon 64 Bid) Room 5350, 9pm

Reno in 2011: Room 1352, 9pm

And remember, kids, don't bleed all over the hotel unless you clean it up.

IT'S A PERFECT MATCH ON MATCH GAME SF

Game Show Serves Up Matchromony — Live!

Match Game contestant Ron Dougherty astounded audience member and sweetheart Yvonne Reide with a surprise marriage proposal on the Match Game SF set Friday evening.

Ron, the first contestant, arranged with host Kevin Standlee and the Match Game crew to have a special first-round question allowing him to fill in the blank with his proposal to Ms. Reide.

We're pretty sure she said "yes."

OVERHEARD

At the Monster Mash: "If my Great Grandma could see me, she'd slap me!" "Why, is she a Mennonite?" "No, she just really liked elephants."

THINGS WE HEAR PEOPLE LIKE

Town meeting: excellent ideas. There's another one today; come brainstorm. Concom needs brains.

Single pattern contest entries this year are awesome.

S.J. Tucker / Kitten Sundae / Vixy and Tony and Betsy concerts. Too much awesome in too little space.

Editors who make jokes about clicking on URLs in print editions.

OVERHEARD

"Does anyone have a monkey head?!"

"INCOMING! MOOSE!"

"The stuffed animals would be having sex, and then the children would cry."

LOST

or is it found?

MICHAEL, do you know where your ID is? Convention Lost and Found does. Come get it, it's lonely.

LOST: small (18cm / 7in) plush cat costumed as a Stargate SG-1 character in an olive drab coverall with belt and glasses. REWARD OFFERED! Please return to AmyCat at Book Universe in the Dealer's Room or Room 316 at the LaQuinta Hotel, or contact AmyCat at [omitted]. "Please help me find Danny Kitten!"

"LIFER" CABAL EXPOSED

along with its platform of doom!

Confidential sources alert DIRTY. LITTLE. SECRETS. to a secret cabal of unimpeachable "lifetime" members of Norwescon!

[Photo] Cabal members in secret conference!

The secret platform reportedly consists of reduced hotel parking, mandatory shoe registration, all-meat hospitality, children in cages, service animals as volunteer snacks, all-talk-radio dances, and intentional cross-programming of all top-rated panels. DO YOU KNOW MORE? TELL US YOUR SECRETS!
