ValhallaCon News

ValhallaCon happened, and everyone had such a great time they want to do it again next year. Thanks to everyone who helped out, and everyone who showed up. Pre-support now for only $25.

It's here! The ValhallaCon Schedule!

New hotel registration link.

Congrats to Nancy Kress, winner of the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Novella for her story "The Erdmann Nexus" appearing in Asimov's Oct/Nov 2008.

This just in -- the concom has decided to scale back ValhallaCon a little bit: one track of programming plus informal coffee klatsches, gaming, and a central hospitality room. So we've lowered the price to $35, where it will stay through the end of the convention.

We still have lots of great guests, including writer guest of honor Nancy Kress and science guest of honor Peter Ward, a paleontologist and professor of Biology and of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington. Other great guests include author Alma Alexander , editor Patrick Swenson (Fairwood Press), and author Cat Rambo, as well as up and coming authors from the Bellingham area.

Saturday July 18, join us at Eagles in Bellingham for the Amazing Super-duper
Fantastic Technicolor (and Zombieriffic) All-day Gaming Extravaganza!
Only $5 for all-you-can-game from 10 am to midnight.

Did you participate in the Viking Invasion at the Norwescon Talebones Live event? Julie's pictures are finally uploaded!

Nancy Kress, our Guest of Honor, has been nominated for a Best Novella 2009 Hugo Award for "The Erdmann Nexus" (Asimov's Oct/Nov 2008)

Yay! We have a date and venue. September 4th–6th, 2009. That's Friday through Sunday of Labor Day weekend. It wil be held at the lovely Bellingham Airport Hampton Inn. That's at 3985 Bennett Drive, Bellingham, WA, 98225, 360-676-7700. The room rate for the event will be $89/night.
