Happy New Year from PulpFest!

Dec 31, 2018 by

Your PulpFest organizing committee — Jack and Sally Cullers, Mike Chomko, Bill Lampkin, and Barry Traylor — would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.

You can ring in the new year by registering for PulpFest 2019! Join us to celebrate mystery, adventure, science fiction, and more as we explore “Children of the Pulps and Other Stories.” The convention will focus its sights on the pervasive influence of pulp magazines on contemporary pop culture. We’ll also be honoring the life and legacy of science fiction author and pulp fan Philip José Farmer with the members of FarmerCon XIV.

Of course, PulpFest 2019 will also 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.

Running from August 15 – 18, 2019, PulpFest will be back at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just north of Pennsylvania’s “Steel City” in Mars, PA. 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.

You can book a room at the DoubleTree simply by clicking the “Book a Room” button right below the PulpFest banner.

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 and register in advance! What a great deal for the holidays!!!

(Since Thanksgiving, PulpFest has been saluting Street & Smith’s terrific general fiction pulp, THE POPULAR MAGAZINE. We’ve been turning to the magazine for our holiday covers, including the First February number for 1929 — dated January 7, 1929 — with cover art by Stockton Mulford.

If you’d like to learn more about THE POPULAR MAGAZINE, visit PulpFest dealer and presenter Ed Hulse’s Murania Press. Ed’s book, BLOOD ‘N’ THUNDER PRESENTS: PRIDE OF THE PULPS features a lengthy, in-depth survey of Street & Smith’s prestigious all-fiction magazine.)
