The Noreascon Four hotel room block is filling up fast. We still have rooms available in both of our hotels, but you should make your reservations soon to be sure of getting your choice of hotel. For more information, see our facilities web page.

Bob Eggleton to MC Retro Hugos

We're pleased to announce that Bob Eggleton will be the MC for Friday night's Retro Hugo Award Ceremony. (We do not believe he will, in 50's fashion, appear in a crew cut.)

Art Show Entry Forms Available

The Art Show has mailed the art show registration form, rules, and other information to more than 2000 artists. If you've exhibited in any of the last few Worldcon Art Shows, or at Boskone, or if you asked to be included, you were mailed the materials. The complete Art Show mailing is also available for downloading here.

Hugo Nominations Deadline Approaching

This is a reminder that the deadline for Hugo and Retro-Hugo nominations, March 25, is quickly approaching. If you need a little help deciding what to read or watch before you nominate, a number of sites offer lists of Hugo-eligible work for your consideration. A few that we know about include Locus Magazines Recommended Reading, the New England Science Fiction Society's Good Stuff list, and The Voyageur's list of Top Dramatic Presentations. In addition, see the January 11 post for information about the Retro-Hugo booklet published by Noreascon 4. (If there are more 2003 recommended reading lists out there that we've missed, please let us know at the blog e-mail address to the left and we'll add them to this post.)
