Thousands of Pulp Magazines in One Hall!
PulpFest 2013 continues the proud tradition of a summer pulp con, now entering its 42nd year! PulpFest is the summertime destination for fans and collectors of vintage popular fiction and related materials. It returns to downtown Columbus, Ohio in 2013.
Join us Thursday, July 25th – Sunday, July 28th
at the Hyatt Regency Columbus
for PulpFest 2013!
In 2012, PulpFest continued to be the convention to attend for fans of pulp fiction and pulp art. Reviews were very positive, from Laurie Powers’ “…I’d say that PulpFest 2012 was a rousing success in its new home,” to Walker Martin‘s “…another excellent event.” For these and other reviews and photographs, please click on the PulpFest 2012 link to the left and scroll down to the reviews.
The PulpFest organizing committee is delighted to announce that this year’s convention will return to the Hyatt Regency, a beautiful venue in the heart of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Buyers and sellers of pulp magazines, digests, first editions, vintage comics and paperbacks, original artwork, and other collectibles will find a spacious dealers’ room and immaculate accommodations. Those members partaking of the evening presentations will be able to enjoy a highly regarded and substantial programming schedule. Be sure to reserve your room at the Hyatt by clicking here or the “Book a Room” link on our home page.
The convention will be advertised and promoted extensively to capture the attention of new hobbyists as well as veteran attendees. Promotional post cards carrying basic information will be distributed at various collectibles shows including Classicon, Ray Walsh’s long-running pulp and glamour art show; Tom Lesser’s Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show; and Chicago’s Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention. Post cards will also be distributed at a wide array of science-fiction, comic book, gaming, mystery, and film conventions as well as book and antique paper shows, bookstores, colleges, and comic shops. The PulpFest organizing committee will also be advertising in Alter Ego, Book Source, Illustration, Paper and Advertising Collector’s Marketplace and other publications.
