In 2018, PulpFest will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

The War to End All Wars had been raging in Europe since 1914. Though the Allied Forces and the Central Powers signed an armistice on Nov. 11, 1918, the war was only getting started in the pulp magazines. THE PULPSTER will look at how World War I was reflected in the pulp magazines during and in the decades after the Great War.

A draft cover for next year’s issue of THE PULPSTER is shown at left. French troops rush across no man’s land in artwork by Rudolph Belarski for the April 1940 issue of THRILLING ADVENTURES.

But World War I is not the only subject we hope to cover in the issue. And that’s where you come in.

THE PULPSTER reflects not only the themes of PulpFest, but also the pulp magazine collecting hobby in general. We’re looking for articles on the pulps, their authors, artists, and editors, pulp history, and collecting itself. If you’ve got an idea, we’d like to hear it!

New material is preferred, but reprinted features of limited distribution that our readers may not have seen are also welcome.

Please email Editor Bill Lampkin at bill@pulpfest.com with your article pitch. We already have a number of articles in the works, so the earlier you can reach out, the better. The deadline for completed articles is May 1, 2018.

If you’re interested in advertising in THE PULPSTER, please contact publisher Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com. He can provide prices for ads and reserve your space. For information on ad sizes, please see the Advertising page at THE PULPSTER website. Cover spaces sell quickly, so order early.

We look forward to hearing from you!
