Hey! Where Are the Posts?

PulpFest 2013 FrontIf you’ve been visiting the PulpFest home page often, you know we try to regularly update our website. So where have all the old posts about our 2013 convention gone? You’ll find them at our new PulpFest 2013 Blogroll page. Click on the link for a play-by-play look at the creation of what many have termed “the best PulpFest of them all,” told through the posts that originally appeared on the convention’s home page during 2012 and 2013.

The image above, based on Walter M. Baumhofer’s front cover painting for the first issue of Doc Savage Magazine, is the original mock-up of PulpFest art designer Chris Kalb’s advertising promo for the 2013 convention.

  1. I would like info on the 2014 Pulpfest.

    I was a protégé of Harry Whittington, a Pulp Legend.

    I am also friends with David Laurence Wilson who has brought back some of Harry’s work in recent years.

    David has a long history of Pulp expertise. I’m not sure if you already work with him?

    Anyway, I would like to see how David and I could share more about Harry Whittington, while promoting our work.

    Thanks,
    Emily

      Dear Emily,

      We will be posting information about PulpFest 2014 throughout the next year on the convention’s home page at http://www.pulpfest.com. The best way to stay informed is to subscribe to our email list using the small gray box labeled “email list” at the top of the home page. We’ll also be posting information on our Facebook page and through our twitter account.

      I’d also recommend you write to Jack Cullers, our registration person, to get a copy of our forthcoming registration newsletter. You can reach him at jack@pulpfest.com.

      Next year’s convention will be held Thursday, August 7 through Sunday, August 10. Our themes for 2014 are the science fiction pulps of 1939 and the birth of that genre’s “Golden Age” and the weird-menace pulps of 1934. So although Whittington is certainly a topic for discussion when exploring the pulps, he probably wouldn’t fit into our plans for next year. Thanks for your interest.

      Mike Chomko
