Classicon — Fall’s Last Pulp Con

Oct 23, 2017 by

As the leaves disappear from the trees, the pulp and paperback convention scene draws to a close. Classicon, one of the oldest pulp and paperback shows, marks the end of the season. Two times each year, Classicon takes place at the University Quality Inn, 3121 East Grand River Ave, in Lansing, Michigan. A one-day show, you’ll find calendar, pin-up, and illustration artwork, plus thousands of rare pulp magazines, paperbacks, vintage comic books, and other collectibles for sale or trade. This fall’s Classicon will take place on Saturday, November 18. It will run from 10 AM until 4 PM.

Many thanks to everyone who attended this year’s PulpFest. We hope that you enjoyed yourself and will return for PulpFest 2018. We’ll be back at the beautiful DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry in 2018 for our forty-seventh convening. We’ll be honoring the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.

PulpFest 2018 is scheduled to begin on Thursday, July 26, and run through Sunday, July 29. Celebrated author Joe R. Lansdale will be the convention’s Guest of Honor.

(In honor of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, PulpFest 2018 will focus on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century. One of the leading magazines of the genre was Fawcett Publications’ BATTLE STORIES. Jerome Rozen painted six covers for the magazine, including the June 1928 number. His twin brother, George Rozen, was far more prolific for the publication, painting almost thirty BATTLE STORIES covers.)
