Notes from the Nevernever Issue 0

The official daily news sheet for Norwescon 46
Wednesday, 27 March 2024

Welcome!

We wish a warm welcome to staff, volunteers, members and our Guests of Honor. If you are not from this area, welcome to Cascadia! Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Rocky Mountains to the east, the Pacific Northwest stretches from Oregon up through Washington, Idaho, and embracing British Columbia. Within Washington state, you’ll find dense forests, rising peaks, desert flats, rolling hills and deep lakes all nestled up next to the realms of Faerie.

Travel with us into the Wylde. While we're used to seeing the unusual at conventions, don't be surprised to see denizens of the Nevernever in attendance, as we invite those with benevolent intentions from the Wylde fae, Wee Folk, cryptids and the Fae Courts to join us. We've warded against any bad intent, but it is always wise to be on your guard. Tricksy faeries.

Your input needed for Con Stories

“Con Stories”are micro stories (just a couple paragraphs) of interesting or funny interactions you have at Norwescon 46. Think: The New York Times’ “Metropolitan Diary,” and you’ll have a good idea of what we’re looking for. Send your snippets of interaction to zine@norwescon.org.

Blast from the Past

Hello mortals, luminous beings and gentle fae. For the unaware, I am Bob – a spirit of intellect who resides in a human skull. I take paperback romances very seriously, and since I began residing with Waldo Butters (doctor, Knight of the Cross, fluffy-bunny-slippered aficionado of Polka and the wonderful world of cinema), I take movies very seriously.

So, I am the perfect host of “Blast from the Past,” where we’ll do a roundup of our favourite geeky classic films and why we love them. Send in the name your favourite movie and why it’s special in your memory, to zine@norwescon.org.

Overheard…

Please submit those "makes sense at a con, but not so much elsewhere" or “only at a sci fi/fantasy convention” things you overhear in our halls, panels, events and parties.

To prime the pump, here are a few from Norwescon 46 Chair SunnyJim Morgan. They are things she said she would never think she’d find herself saying – but did at a con:

  • “I have to go schedule the mermaids.”
  • “But my space kilt holds six beers!”
  • “I need a ninja wrangler.”

Send your own Overheard items to zine@norwescon.org.

Interested in volunteering?

Go to the volunteer table, located in the convention lobby. Even if it’s for a few hours a day, your time helping out at your convention, is appreciated.

Change is the only constant, Greek philosopher Heraclitus told us more than 2550 years ago, and it’s true at conventions. But don’t be worried about missing something–we have Guidebook and our website to keep you in-the-know.
