THE PULPSTER #29As Bill Lampkin — editor of THE PULPSTER — recently wrote: “While 2020 may be looking like the “Year Without Pulp Conventions,” we have something for you to look forward to — this year’s number of THE PULPSTER.”

The annual magazine for PulpFest will soon be available, despite the convention having been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Copies of THE PULPSTER #29 will be available for purchase through Mike Chomko, Books, one of the leading purveyors of pulp-related publications in the field.

This year’s Pulpster won’t be a regular edition. While not as thick as a Ziff-Davis AMAZING STORIES QUARTERLY, THE PULPSTER #29 will be almost twice as large as last year’s edition. Weighing in at 84 pages, plus covers, think of the forthcoming issue as THE PULPSTER ANNUAL . . . or PulpFest without the trip to Pittsburgh.

Like our canceled convention, the dual centennials of Ray Bradbury’s birth and the debut of BLACK MASK magazine are the focus of THE PULPSTER #29. To learn more about what’s inside the issue, read “Highlights from THE PULPSTER” on our homepage. Or click right here.

Copies of THE PULPSTER #29  will be available for shipping by early September. The cost of the new issue will be $15, plus postage. It will be mailed in a sturdy cardboard envelope. First-class postage should cost between $4 – 5 within the United States. Buyers from outside the United States should inquire about shipping charges, prior to placing an order.

If you’re interested in reserving your copy of THE PULPSTER #29, please contact Mike Chomko at or 2217 W. Fairview St., Allentown, PA 18104-6542. The magazine will also be available through Bud’s Art Books, Adventure House, and other purveyors of fine, pulp-related publications.
