Astounding Stories 36-02We hope everyone who will be attending the Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show over the coming weekend will have a great time. With over fifty authors and artists scheduled to attend, you’re bound to enjoy yourselves. Back east, we’re expecting snow. But in less than a month, it will be getting Windy.

The Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention returns to the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center on Friday, April 17th, beginning with early-bird shopping at 9:30 AM. The convention runs through Sunday afternoon, April 19th, with its dealers’ room closing at 4 PM. Like PulpFest, this year’s Windy will be celebrating the 125th anniversary of H. P. Lovecraft’s birth.

The Windy is noted for its substantial auctions; its art exhibition, sponsored by Illustration Magazine; and its extensive film program, organized by Ed Hulse of Murania Press.
