Thrilling Comics 1939-1Year after year, PulpFest is a paradise for the fan of pulp magazines, digests, vintage paperbacks, and other collectibles. The collector will also find first edition hardcovers, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, series books, dime novels, original artwork, Big Little Books, B-movies, serials and related paper collectibles, old-time-radio shows, and Golden and Silver Age comic books in our 15,800 square-foot dealers’ room.

For those who simply like to read pulp and genre fiction, you’ll find science-fiction hardcovers and paperbacks, mysteries, adventure fiction, and countless pulp reprints from publishers such as Adventure House, Age of AcesAltus Press, Meteor House, Sanctum Books, and Stark House Press. Fans of new pulp will have readings by their favorite authors on both Friday and Saturday as well as a panel moderated by Ron Fortier, plus books for sale from Will Murray’s Adventures in BronzeAirship 27, and other purveyors of today’s pulp fiction. We’ll also have pulp-related gaming supplies.

Accommodating over 100 tables, our dealers’ room will be open to all comers from 10 AM to about 4:30 PM on August 14th and 15th and until 2 PM on Sunday, August 16th (although buying and selling opportunities may be limited on our final day as many of our dealers will be packing up for their return trip home).

And don’t forget about our early-bird hours on Thursday evening, August 13th, from 6 PM to 10 PM. For an additional $25-30 over your regular membership fee, you’ll be able to purchase early-bird privileges for an extra four hours of shopping. Better still, to reward loyal attendees who help to defray the convention’s substantial costs by staying three nights at our host hotel, PulpFest is pleased to offer free early-bird privileges. That’s a very significant savings! Plus, if you a prepay your membership and attend our annual business meeting on Saturday evening, you might win a refund of your full membership fee!

Remember, “If you read or collect pulps, pulp reprints, books, vintage paperbacks, original artwork, golden-age or silver-age comic books .  .  .  PulpFest is the place to be.”

(Perhaps you’ll find the first issue of THRILLING COMICS, dated February 1940 and featuring cover artwork by Alexander Kostuk, at this year’s PulpFest. You won’t find out unless you attend. We hope to see you in beautiful, downtown Columbus, Ohio from August 13th to August 16th at the pop culture center of the universe!”
