Book a Room at the DoubleTree

Jun 6, 2017 by

Are you planning to attend PulpFest 2017? If you are, you can book your room directly through the PulpFest website. Below our banner and along the right hand side of our home page at pulpfest.com, you’ll find links that read “Book a Room.” Click on one of these links and you’ll be redirected to a secure site where you can book a room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just nineteen miles north of the exciting city of Pittsburgh.

You can also reserve a room by calling 1-800-222-8733. Please be sure to mention PulpFest in order to receive the special convention rate of $125 plus tax per night. Included in the room rate are free Wi-Fi privileges in each sleeping room and the hotel’s lobby, plus two complimentary breakfasts per room for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There is ample free parking surrounding the hotel. You must book your room by July 5, 2017 in order to get the special convention rate.

Conveniently located at the intersection of three major roadways, the DoubleTree boasts a world-class restaurant in an open air setting. There are many other restaurants nearby — some within walking distance — suitable for a variety of tastes. The more adventurous can discover plenty of dining, shopping, and nightlife just a short drive away in downtown Pittsburgh. The DoubleTree also offers a 24-hour fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a sauna. You’ll find a map to the hotel and the surrounding area on the PulpFest home page.

By staying at our host hotel, you help to defray the convention’s substantial costs. You also help demonstrate to our hotel that PulpFest is a top-notch convention that will help their bottom line. To thank you for making PulpFest look good, you’ll get free early-bird shopping on Thursday evening in the PulpFest dealers’ room. That’s a savings of $35 if you stay at the DoubleTree!

We’re very happy the DoubleTree Cranberry will be hosting the summertime destination for fans and collectors of vintage popular fiction and related materials. PulpFest seeks to honor pulp fiction and pulp art by drawing attention to the many ways they have inspired writers, artists, film directors, software developers, game designers, and other creators over the decades. The DoubleTree will be a great venue for our convention.

In 2017, PulpFest will be paying tribute to the history of the pulps by saluting the hardboiled dicks that transformed the traditional mystery story into the tough guy (and gal) crime fiction that remains popular to this very day. We’ll also be focusing our attention on the dangerous dames of the pulps, the hardboiled ladies who helped to pave the way for such modern day gumshoes as Sue Grafton‘s Kinsey Millhone, Marcia Muller‘s Sharon McCone, and Sara Paretsky‘s V. I. Warshawski. And we’ll set our sites on the psychos of the pulps as we celebrate the hundredth anniversary of Robert Bloch — the pulp writer who penned the novel PSYCHO — and the countless diabolical madmen who battled the heroes of pulp fiction. We’ll also be celebrating the life and work of former pulp artist Gloria Stoll Karn, who will be attending PulpFest 2017 as our Guest of Honor.

Start planning to attend PulpFest 2017 and its celebration of pulp fiction and pulp art. Join us July 27 – 30 outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as we explore the “hardboiled dicks, dangerous dames, and a few psychos” of the pulps. So please book your room right now and plan to join us at the “pop culture center of the universe” at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry for PulpFest 2017.

Book a Room at the Hyatt Regency

Jun 25, 2016 by

Amazing Stories 41-11 back Thursday, July 21 is fast approaching. That’s the date when “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con” will start at the Hyatt Regency and the Greater Columbus Convention Center in beautiful downtown Columbus, Ohio. Although there are many hotels where you can stay during PulpFest 2016, there are plenty more reasons that you should stay at the beautiful Hyatt Regency. Of course, the most important reason will be that you’ll be helping the convention to meet its substantial costs by staying at its host hotel.

The PulpFest dealers’ room in the spacious Battelle South exhibition hall on the third floor of the convention center will be open from 6 PM to 9 PM for early-bird shopping. PulpFest members who will be staying at the Hyatt for three nights will be admitted free of charge during our early-bird hours.

The price will increase to $25 on July 2 and to $30 on July 21. Click the registration button below our home page banner to learn how to register for the convention.

But wait! In addition to free early bird shopping on Thursday, we’ll 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.

(In PULP ART, published by Gramercy Books in 1997, Robert Lesser writes: “Frank R. Paul’s back covers, such as “Golden City of Titan” . . . are masterpieces of science fiction art. The artist’s training in architecture shows in all his work, but the style is unique. There is a two-dimensional flatness, as if the Italian Renaissance had never introduced perspective. Paul’s paintings border on primitive art; they are charming, and almost childlike in their imagination and sense of wonder.” Paul’s “Golden City of Titan” ran on the back cover of the November 1941 issue of AMAZING STORIESPulpFest 2016 will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of AMAZING — the first continuing science fiction magazine — at this year’s convention.)
