PulpFest 2015 dealers' room

I will be updating this PulpFest roundup fairly regularly over the next few weeks, as more are posted online. So please check back periodically.

Ten hours of PulpFest 2015 programming is now available through ThePulp.Net‘s Pulp Event Podcast feed on iTunes. I will be adding the audio recordings to the website over the next week. I provide links once they are available.

Please let me know if you have written or know of a convention report not included below, and I will add it to the listings.

Now, onto the reports…
