THE PULPSTER: Call for Contributions

Nov 5, 2018 by

Like PulpFest, planning for next year’s issue of THE PULPSTER begins well in advance of the annual convention.

The Pulpster logoWe always start with a clean slate, other than the usual departments, and that means we need your help with articles.

The theme for the 2019 PulpFest is “Children of the Pulps and Other Stories,” an exploration of how the pulp magazines influenced today’s genre fiction and popular culture.

Although we like to echo the convention’s theme in THE PULPSTER, we also include other articles pertaining to the pulps, to the men and women who wrote, illustrated, edited, and published the pulps, and to the pulp collecting hobby itself.

Do you have an idea for an article that you would like to write for THE PULPSTER? Please let us know.

THE PULPSTER #27Do you have an idea for an article that you would like to read in THE PULPSTER (but not necessarily write)? Let us know that, too, and we will see what we can do about finding someone to write it.

You can drop Editor Bill Lampkin an email at bill@pulpfest.com. The sooner he hears from you, the better. He has to plan space for articles and start collecting artwork and illustrations.

If you’re interested in advertising in THE PULPSTER, please write to PulpFest marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com. Mike can provide pricing and print specifications.

Copies of THE PULPSTER #27, the latest issue, are available from Mike Chomko, Books. He also has limited copies of issues #23 and #26.

(THE PULPSTER #27 marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and how the Great War influenced the pulps. The cover, depicting a charge by French soldiers across “No Man’s Land,” was by Rudolph Belarski for the April 1940 THRILLING ADVENTURES.)
