ValhallaCon update

In the past week, the concom has decided to scale back ValhallaCon a little bit. There will be one track of programming as well as informal coffee klatsches, gaming, and a central hospitality room. To reflect these changes, we've lowered the membership to $35, where it will stay through the end of the convention.

We will have lots of great guests, including writer guest of honor Nancy Kress and science guest of honor Peter Ward, who is a paleontologiist at the University of Washington. Other great guests include author Alma Alexander, editor Patrick Swenson (Talebones and Fairwood Press), and author Cat Rambo, as well as up and coming authors from the Bellingham area.

Because this is a small convention, it will be a really intimate gathering that gives you the chance to connect personally with the authors and other guests.

The membership rate on the site will remain at $45 for a little while because our Paypal person is at Worldcon. In the meantime, you can make a check out to VikingCon Organizing Committee and send it to PO Box 5171, Bellingham, WA 98227. Please make sure to include your name, address, phone number, email, and desired badge name.

If you have already purchased a membership at $45 and would like us to refund the difference, please let us know in advance or at the convention and we will happily do it.

    Just a polite reminder as the convention approaches this weekend. If you're planning to have a room party or informal gathering (which we certainly…
