Happy New Year from PulpFest!

Jan 1, 2018 by

Ring in the new year by planning to join PulpFest 2018! We’ll be celebrating the centennial of “The Armistice that Ended The Great War” and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer. Plus, we’ll have a dealers’ room filled with detective and adventure pulps, science fiction books and magazines, westerns and digest magazines, original art and illustrations, vintage paperbacks and collectible comic books, unique films, and much more. All this plus our guest of honor, Joe Lansdale, author of over forty novels and many short stories. You’ll find it all at PulpFest 2018.

Running from July 26 – 29, the convention will be returning to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. 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 offers ample free parking, free wifi for its guests, and two complimentary breakfasts per room during your stay.

To thank those members who will be supporting PulpFest by staying at our host hotel, the convention will offer free early-bird shopping on Thursday evening in the PulpFest dealers’ room. That’s a savings of $35 if you stay at the DoubleTree! What a great deal for the holidays!!!

Your PulpFest organizing committee — Jack and Sally Cullers, Mike Chomko, Bill Lampkin, Barry Traylor, and Chuck Welch — wishes everyone a happy and healthy new year.

(The front cover art for the January 1930 issue of Harold Hersey’s LOVE AND WAR STORIES was painted by Alfred George Skrenda. The artist is best remembered for his dust jacket work for the publishing industry. The sole issue of the pulp — published by Good Story Magazine Company — featured stories by Ross C. Holland, Robert H. Leitfred, Leonard S. Norton, E. Quinton, and Carl Ziegler. Except for Quinton and Norton, all of the authors published regularly in the war and air magazines.)
