Head to Chicago for the 2016 Dum-Dum

Jul 5, 2016 by

Worlds of ERBAs we’ve been reminding you for pretty much all of the last year, “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con” will take place from Thursday, July 21, through Sunday, July 24 in the Hyatt Regency and the Greater Columbus Convention Center in beautiful downtown Columbus, Ohio.

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. 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.

PulpFest 2016 will be here before you know it and then . . . like all good things . . . it will be over. What to do then? All is not lost . . .

The Chicago Muckers chapter of the Burroughs Bibliophiles is planning to celebrate its tenth anniversary by hosting the 2016 Dum-Dum, the annual gathering of Edgar Rice Burroughs enthusiasts. It will be held in the Quality Inn in Morris, Illinois from Thursday through Saturday, August 4 to 6, with a farewell breakfast Sunday, August 7. The convention’s guests of honor will be Mike Resnick, Hugo-Award winning science fiction author, former ERB fandom writer, and co-editor of WORLDS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS; and Robert Garcia, his co-editor and the book’s graphic designer.

Also appearing at the convention will be artist Doug Klauba and pulp expert Doug Ellis, co-chairman of the Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention. Hopefully, Chicago’s Dum-Dum will help get you through the next thirteen months, until the arrival of PulpFest 2017 in August of next year.

(WORLDS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS — featuring cover art by Dave Seeley — is an anthology of eleven stories by modern authors set in the fantastic worlds created by the early twentieth century master of the adventure story. Published by Baen Books in 2013, it features stories from every one of Burrough’s series, including some of his later and lesser known ones.)
