Yvonne Navarro: Photos from World Horror Convention 2001

World Horror Convention
Seattle, Washington - May, 2001

Admittedly, Von is not someone who enjoys a climate that tends to be cool and humid. Still, as with Eugene a few years ago, there's undeniable beauty along the northwestern coast in the spring. Rhododendrums and a thousaad other flowers with unknown names, sunshine when she thought there'd be rain, the company of good friends-- you just can't ask for more in the course of a writers' convention. If you click on the smaller images, you'll see we've upped the image size from earlier con pages so you can get a for really good view of the fun.
