Distant Horizons, Epic Adventures

2014 P.K. Dick Award Nominees

The nominees for the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award have been announced. Please see the webpage for more information.

Worldwide Dead

Not all ghosts are of the stuffy, Victorian England variety. Worldwide Dead (Thursday, 3 p.m.) seeks to explore the shapes of death customs and the restless dead in cultures around the world. Come and let our expert panel add some worldly weirdness to your concept of death and the afterlife.

Norwescon Art Show sold out

This year's Norwescon Art Show is sold out. We maintain a wait list in case of cancellations. If you are interested in being added to the wait list, please email us at We would love to hear from you.

Laser Tag

This year, Laser Tag will be sharing the room with Nerf Battle. Laser Tag will be played for the first hour then we'll switch to Nerf Battle. There will be a separate table for Nerf Battle in the room. There will also be a range available when the room opens to test your aim before you play.

Preregistration and safety videos will be available at the information desk all day Thursday. After you have had the required presentation, we will mark your badge and you will be ready to go when play starts.


Norwescon is an all-volunteer organization. As such, we are always looking for more people who are willing to share their time and talents. If you are interested in helping to plan and run Norwescon, please feel free to join us at our next planning meeting. If you have a little time free during the convention, stop by the volunteer lounge; our team will be happy to find you something to do.

nwcMUSIC Songwriting Workshop

For years, Norwescon has held writing workshops. Now we think it's about time to have a songwriting workshop, too! Do you want to improve your songwriting?

Nicole Dieker, Jonny Nero Action Hero and Steven Perry of Death*Star will work with you to help get your song where you want it to go. ALL MUSIC GENRES WELCOME!

Pasties are Coming.

Norwescon and Purple Devil Productions are joining forces to bring burlesque to the Grand Ballrooms on Friday night. A Game of Aces will be a sexy homage to the works of George R.R. Martin, starring some of the best and brightest of the nerdlesque: a particularly nerdy form of burlesque. To entertain you will be Mister Bawdy, master of ceremonies for the evening. He's leading an all-star cast starring Bella La Blanc (from Reston, Virginia), Siouxzie Queen Gypsy, Miss Violet DeVille, Fallon Grey, Jesus la Pinga, Maggie McMuffin, Minni Bobbins, Nickey Bourbon, Whisper De Corvo, and Titania Teaseblossom, who will bring tales from Westeros to life in a brand new way.

A Game of Aces is Friday night in Grand 2 and 3 at 9:00 p.m. The show is for members of Norwescon who are 18 years of age or older and is included as a part of your membership.
