Apr 10, 2017 by

With the Windy City Pulp and Paperback Convention a couple weeks away, PulpFest chairman Jack Cullers and his stalwart corps of volunteers have been manning the presses and rolling off copies of our annual newsletters. With the ink barely dry, the latest edition of THE PULPFEST NEWS is being stuffed into envelopes, stamped, addressed, and mailed.

Although our newsletter will be filled with information about this year’s convention — a preview of our programming plans, a look at our Guest of Honor, information about our hotel, early-bird shopping details, registration instructions, auction instructions, and much more — please stay tuned to our announcements here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We’ll be regularly providing updates in the coming months. So be sure to bookmark our home page, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.

In addition to all the news about PulpFest 2017 that’s fit to print, a registration form will be included with your copy of the newsletter. If you have not received your copy of our newsletter and registration form by the end of April, please contact David J. Cullers at or at 1272 Cheatham Way, Bellbrook, OH 45305. Let him know your mailing address and he’ll get a copy of our newsletter to you.

If you can’t wait, please visit our home page. Click on one of the registration links and scroll down to the “Payment Instructions” section. There, you’ll find a link to our newsletter.

Start making your planning to attend PulpFest 2017 and join hundreds of pulp fiction fans at the pop-culture center of the universe. We look forward to seeing you July 27 – 30 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just nineteen miles north of the beautiful city of Pittsburgh. If you still need a hotel room, you can book one directly through the PulpFest website. Just click the “Book a Room for 2017” link on our home page or call 1-800-222-8733. Be sure to mention PulpFest in order to receive the convention rate.

(Our 2017 newsletter was written by marketing and programming director and designed by advertising director and PULPSTER editor William Lampkin.)

A number of blogs have posts where PulpFest 2015 attendees recount their experiences at the convention:

You can find updated report lists at Bill Thom’s Pulp Coming Attractions, and at Yellowed Perils.

(Most of our promotional materials for PulpFest 2015 featured Matt Fox’s cover for the November 1944 issue of WEIRD TALES, one of about a dozen covers the artist painted for “the unique magazine.” Also pictured here is a trio of thumbnails from the “Thrilling Group,” the nickname for Standard Magazines, likewise lauded during our 2015 convention. Each year, PulpFest is packed with programming highlighting a range of topics.

To see what you’ve been missing, start making your plans right now to join the 45th convening of “Summer’s Great Pulp Con” in 2016. Your PulpFest organizing committee is already starting to plan for next year’s convention. PulpFest 2016 will take place July 21 – 24 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.)

Welcome to the New

Nov 4, 2014 by

PulpFest2015PLogoWe’re happy to debut the new look for The clean design by Chris Kalb is an effort to make our site easier to use and to highlight the latest information about PulpFest 2015, our attendees, presenters and dealers.

There might be a missing feature or two, but over the next couple of weeks we’ll be fine-tuning the site as we get user feedback. If you notice anything broken or misplaced, please don’t hesitate to contact our sitesmith, Chuck Welch. ( chuck @ )

When we finalize all costs and information for 2015, we’ll post links on the top menu — just below the PulpFest logo. The red menu at right will link to posts about programming, our dealers, awards, auction information and more. Most of the posts are about PulpFest 2014, but expect much more about 2015 in the coming weeks.

If you’re into social media, you can follow PulpFest at Facebook, Twitter and through our RSS feed. (Our email list is still active. We’ll publish the address to join in just a few days.)

Thanks for making PulpFest your favorite summer pulp convention. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Columbus August 13th through the 16th, 2015!
