Last Call to Contribute to THE PULPSTER

THE PULPSTER with cover art by Walter BaumhoferDeadline for contributing articles to this year’s issue of THE PULPSTER is the end of April.

There is already an outstanding lineup of articles planned from Will Murray, Doug Ellis, Richard Bleiler, Scott Tracy Griffin, and others. But editor Bill Lampkin is always open to pitches for additional features. Please drop him an email at bill@pulpfest.com.

In addition to the magazine’s general focus on the pulp magazines, this year’s edition will also reflect the theme of PulpFest: The Children of the Pulps and Other Stories. We will examine how the pulp magazines influenced popular culture from the pulp era through today.

THE PULPSTER will also include the usual departments: Lampkin’s Editorial, “From the Publisher” by Mike Chomko, and the annual tributes by Tony Davis to those who have gone on to browse the great pulp rack in the sky.

Lampkin would like to hear your idea for an article. If you have one that you’d like to write — or if you have a topic you’d like to see covered in THE PULPSTER — please email him at bill@pulpfest.com. Deadline for submissions is April 30.

If you’re interested in promoting your work or organization by advertising in THE PULPSTER, please write to Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com.

Meanwhile, stay tuned for another exciting issue of THE PULPSTER coming to PulpFest in August.

(The art used for this proposed cover of THE PULPSTER was originally painted by Walter Baumhofer. It depicts the original superman and was created for the March 1933 DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE, published by Street & Smith Publications.

Copies of THE PULPSTER #26 and 27 are available for purchase through Mike Chomko, Books, one of the leading purveyors of pulp-related publications in the field.

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.)
