You've heard of the Nebulas and the Hugos, but how about the 2004 Nanny Ogg's fantasy fashion show awards?

Noreascon Four is wicked excited (that's Bostonian for "very pleased") to announce that Harper Collins Publishers will be offering a US$500 prize at Noreascon Four for the best masquerade entry based on guest of honour Terry Pratchett's Discworld books.

So sharpen up your sewing needles, and get ready for the Noreascon Four Masquerade.

Harper Collins Publishers, based in New York, is of course Pratchett's U.S. publisher, and all paricipants in the Noreascon Four Masquerade must be members of the convention.

Oh, and all CMOT ("Cut-Me-Own-Throat") Dibblers are advised that Massachusetts guidelines on health and safety will definitely prohibit you from selling your version of "food" anywhere in the Commonwealth.

For more information about the 62nd World Science Fiction Convention see their main web site at
