Bits of pulp is an irregular feature of Yellowed Perils, and gives me a chance to touch upon a collection of items that popped up on my pulp radar recently.

I got home last evening from my 1,750-mile round trip to PulpFest 2016. It’s a long drive, but well worth it.
I apologize again for not getting a report on day 3 of the convention posted Sunday. I didn’t get up early enough, then had too much to do before hitting the road for a seven-hour drive, which was the first half of my trip home.

Today’s post takes a different approach from most at Yellowed Perils. It’s more of a roundup of items I want to call your attention to.
I’ve enjoyed Barry’s enthusiasm for one of my favorite pulp heroes. It’s clearly one of his favorites, too. (Now if Barry would only start using a shock-mounted microphone.)Read More
I fall into the “You’ve chosen your fandom and you’re just plain going to miss out on new stories that you’d probably enjoy” group. Which group are you?
