Gareth to appear at Norwescon 33

Norwescon is touted as the Pacific Northwest’s premiere science fiction and fantasy convention and one of the largest regional sci-fi and fantasy conventions in the United States. Originally created with a literary focus, Norwescon has grown to encompass a diverse range of interests such as anime, costuming, art & gaming just to name a few. Norwescon’s 33rd convention opens Thursday, April 1 at the Doubletree Hotel in Sea-Tac.

On Saturday, April 3, Gareth von Kallenbach will be moderating “The Best and Worst Movies of 2009” , in the Cascade 7 room. Year 2009 was an interesting one for movies. It brought movie-goers the resurgence of Captain Kirk and the even harder downfall of two Hasbro toy franchises. Come debate with a panel of critics on what were the best and worst movies of 2009.

Afterwards, pick up the latest issue of Skewed & Reviewed magazine, and have Gareth autograph it during Autograph Session #2 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in either Evergreen Room 3 or 4.

At 4 p.m., join Gareth in Evergreen Room 1 as he hosts the “Upcoming Video Games of 2010-2012” panel. This one-hour panel will give you a look at what to expect in video games in the next two years, as well as some of the movie tie-ins. Gareth encourages Q & A interaction and will come with swag and gifts for con-goers. Among the games to be discussed will be the new Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien games inspired by the films, as well as stand-alone games.
