Happy Thanksgiving from PulpFest

Nov 20, 2017 by

Today, the PulpFest organizing committee would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. We hope your holiday will turn out far better than the day of this particular soldier.

Over the coming months, we’ll be looking at some of the artists, writers, and publishers who worked in the war genre for the pulp magazine industry. It’s all part of our celebration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that brought the First World War to an end.

Beginning on Thursday evening, July 26, and running through Sunday, July 29, PulpFest 2018 will focus on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century as well as the depiction of war in popular culture. Please join us at the beautiful DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer. PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKITHE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more. And don’t forget that award-winning author Joe Lansdale will be PulpFest‘s guest of honor. We look forward to seeing you in July 2018.

(C. R. Schaare began working at the age of twelve. Trained as an engraver’s assistant, he eventually found employment as a sketch artist for the advertising industry. In 1925 he began to sell freelance pulp magazine covers to ACE-HIGH, AIR STORIES, ALL-AMERICAN SPORTS, GUN MOLLS, LARIAT STORY, MASKED RIDER, NAVY STORIES, WAR STORIES — including the July 5, 1929 cover — and other pulps. He continued to work for the pulps as a cover artist until 1940. He also contributed many covers to the boxing periodical, THE RING.)
