I’m hitting the road on Wednesday morning (it’s a two-day drive up to Columbus, Ohio), and looking forward to attending a third-straight year. I hope you’ll be among those going to the con this year.
The dealers’ room opens at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 21, for early-bird shopping. Then PulpFest’s evening programming kicks off a few hours later.
At least for me, PulpFest makes for long days. The dealers’ room opens at 10 a.m. each day, but I’m usually down before then. And even though the scheduled events usually wrap up between 11 and midnight (the auction can run longer), someone’s often hosting an informal get-together until the wee hours.Read More
Whew. It’s been a busy month.Read More
Man, the end of July is in just three days. PulpFest is just over two weeks away. Where did the summer — and, heck, the spring — go?
Then May hit.
Starting in May and continuing through June and July, most — if not all — of my “pulp time” is devoted to putting together the year’s issue of The Pulpster for PulpFest. The final PDF went to the printers yesterday.
I think it’s a terrific issue. We have an outstanding roster of contributors, and articles on H.P. Lovecraft, Maj. Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, Ned Pines‘ Thrilling line of pulps, Erle Stanley Gardner, the Street & Smith comics, European pulp heroes, and much more.Read More
This year’s issue of The Pulpster just went off to the printers.
It’s jam-packed with great articles by Mike Chomko, Don Hutchison, Don Herron, Jeff Shanks, Garyn Roberts, Chris Vallini Lawson, Dwayne Olson, John Gunnison and Tony Davis. Most spin off of PulpFest 2014‘s two themes: the 75th anniversary of the science-fiction pulp boom of 1939, and the 80th anniversary of the 1934 debut of the shudder pulps.Read More
PulpFest will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of what many scholars consider the dawn of science fiction’s Golden Age (1939) and the 80th anniversary of Popular Publications’ introduction of the shudder pulp trio of Dime Mystery Magazine, Terror Tales and Horror Stories (1934).
Articles along those topics would be very welcome. But we don’t limit The Pulpster to just one or two themes. If you have an interesting pulp-related article idea, I’d love to hear from you. We prefer never-before-published (in print or online) articles.Read More
