Happy New Year from PulpFest!

Dec 30, 2019 by

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

Ring out the old, ring in the new. Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring out the grief that saps the mind, ring in Pulpfest and the joys you’ll find . . . on Mars (Pennsylvania, that is). That’s where PulpFest 2020 will celebrate the centennial of Ray Bradbury’s birth, the 100th anniversary of BLACK MASK, and the 120th anniversary of the birth of WEIRD TALES cover artist Margaret Brundage. There will also be presentations brimming with Baum, Burroughs, Barsoom, Brackett, B-movies, and more. And don’t forget about our guest of honor, the beautiful Eva Lynd, one of the top magazine models of the fifties and sixties.

A New Year means new beginnings. We have B’s aplenty, so forget your blues and be sure to join us August 6 – 9 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry in Mars, PA for a PulpFest like no other.

(Although primarily remembered today for the fourteen covers that he painted for DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE during 1936 and 1937, Robert G. Harris also contributed many interior illustrations and cover paintings to other pulp magazines.

After joining the American Artists Agency in 1937, Harris began working for the slick magazines and advertising market. He worked for Coca-Cola, COSMOPILITAN, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, LIBERTY, REDBOOK, THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, and other accounts. The cover painting for the January 1, 1938 issue of LIBERTY is an excellent example of his work for the slicks.)
