Free Stuff at PulpFest!

Jul 4, 2016 by

Amazing Stories 43-08Bring on the fireworks! It’s time to celebrate our nation’s freedom. What better time for PulpFest 2016 to offer thanks for all of the donations we’ve received? They’re all meant for our members who will receive them free of charge. Their only requirement is to attend “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con” at the Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown Columbus, Ohio from July 21 through July 24!

Our newest sponsor, AbeBooks.com, will be offering two hardcover copies of popular culture expert Mike Ashley’s SCIENCE-FICTION REBELS — the fourth volume in the author’s HISTORY OF THE SCIENCE-FICTION MAGAZINE — as door prizes during July’s convention. PulpFest will be randomly selecting two members present at this year’s convention to receive hardbound copies of this new work of science fiction scholarship. It’s a great book — valued at over $100 — to offer at this year’s convention. After all, we’ll be saluting the 90th anniversary of the first continuing science fiction magazine, AMAZING STORIES, at this year’s PulpFest.

We’d also like to offer many thanks to Chaosium, the publisher of CALL OF CTHULHU, one of the most recognized role playing games in the world. Chaosium has donated a selection of both fiction books for door prizes and role playing game supplements to be used as prizes during PulpFest‘s gaming track.

Engle Publishing will be providing copies of THE PAPER & ADVERTISING COLLECTORS’ MARKETPLACE for distribution free of charge at PulpFest. They’ve been doing so since the first PulpFest in 2009.

Gordon Van Gelder and FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION, the award-winning magazine that is celebrating its 67th anniversary in 2016, will again be offering copies of back issues to our members. Gordon’s magazine has been supporting PulpFest — and Pulpcon before it — for many years. We’re extremely grateful for the long-standing support of F&SF.

Radio Archives, the leading producer of old-time radio collections and pulp audiobooks, will be offering a free audiobook to each and every attendee of PulpFest 2016. To celebrate the launch of the new Airship 27 and Pro Se Productions lines of audiobooks, Radio Archives will be offering a free voucher — valued at $15 to $20 — through our registration packets. You’ll be able to choose any Airship 27 or Pro Se audiobook you like, with no restrictions. PulpFest is extremely grateful to Radio Archives, Airship 27 Productions, and Pro Se Productions for this very generous offer.

PulpFest itself will be holding a drawing at the close of our annual business meeting, scheduled for 9:20 PM on Saturday, July 23. Two lucky convention attendees who prepay for their membership, book a room for three nights at our host hotel, and choose to attend our business meeting will receive free memberships to PulpFest 2017. You must provide proof of your stay at the Hyatt Regency Columbus and be present at the drawing to receive your prize.

If you are not from the Columbus area and have yet to book your room for this year’s PulpFest, you can try calling 1-888-421-1442 to reach the Hyatt Regency. Perhaps there are rooms still available. Alternately, you can search for a room at tripadvisor  or a similar website to find a hotel near the convention. Other sites include www.columbusconventions.com/thearea.phpcourtesy of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, and the Experience Columbus lodging page at http://www.experiencecolumbus.com/stay Thanks so much to everyone who has reserved a room at our host hotel. By staying at the Hyatt Regency, you’ve helped to ensure the convention’s success.

We’d also like to thank the many bookstores and comic shops throughout Ohio and other states, as well as the many book fairs and conventions that have helped to promote “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con” all through the past year. You’ve done a FANTASTIC job and we couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks so much!

(Joseph Wirt Tillotson, who signed his work “Robert Fuqua,” was AMAZING editor Ray Palmer’s favored cover artist from the get-go. Beginning with the October 1938 issue of AMAZING STORIES through the January 1944 number, Fuqua contributed nearly three-dozen covers — including the patriotic flag cover for the August 1943 issue — to the magazine and its companion title, FANTASTIC ADVENTURES.)

Thanks to Our Sponsors

(Galaxy Press writer L. Ron Hubbard‘s stories appeared in seventeen issues of ARGOSY WEEKLY, all published in 1936 and 1937. Although his name was often featured on the cover, his only story to receive ARGOSY cover billing was “Mr. Luck,” published in the October 3, 1936 issue. However, V. E. Pyles’ cover art illustrated Theodore Roscoe’s “King of Beasts.” Also featured in the issue were stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard, making the number a highly collectible issue of the magazine. PulpFest 2016 will be saluting the 120th anniversary of ARGOSY, the first pulp magazine.)
