Norwescon is Seattle's regional science fiction convention held each year on Easter.  It's on its 34th year.  For the last few years we've been doing a bit of steampunk content.  This year I am on five panels and we are doing a special Steamcon promotion at our fan table.  Details follow:

 “Steampunk Art”   Thursday   8pm Cascade 13         

Is Steampunk art only for costuming and cool outfits and gadgets? No, we say! Come meet some artists to see how they use Steampunk influences and styles in their artwork!
 

“The Best of Steampunk Then and Now”   Thursday   9pm Cascade 9           

Steampunk is the combination of what the past is and what it means, and what the future is and what it means; like Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea where a 1950’s nuclear submarine shows up in an 1880’s fictional world.  What are the steampunk classics and what new fiction is driving it forward?
 

“Dieselpunk and Retro Futurism”   Friday   6pm    Cascade 8           

What is it, why and how you too can build your own jet pack, or at least look like you could.
 

“Twisting History”  Saturday   10am      Cascade 8           

History need not be dry and dusty. Certainly Steampunk has taught us that it can be fun and greasy! Learn to take a historical period and give it just the pinch or nudge it needs to set off a whole new fresh interpretation of ideas in fun ways, from tropical Tudor, kente cloth kimonos, Halloween houppelandes, Asian Regency, and many more. Blow the dust of the musty history books and let’s have some fun!
 

“Multi-Cultural Steampunk”   Saturday   4pm  Cascade 13         

The Victorian era happened everywhere, not just England. Come get some ideas on how to make your Steamy-wear a bit more exotic.
