A block of rooms has been reserved for PulpFest 2019 attendees at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. However, to receive the special convention rate of $129 plus tax per night, you must book your room by Wednesday, July 31.

You can place your reservation directly through the PulpFest website. Below our homepage banneryou’ll find a button that reads “Book a Room.” Click it and you’ll be redirected to a secure site where you can book a room at the DoubleTree.

You can also reserve a room by calling 1-800-222-8733. Please be sure to mention PulpFest in order to receive the special convention rate. Included in the room rate are free Wi-Fi privileges in each sleeping room and the hotel’s lobby, plus two complimentary breakfasts per room for each day of your stay.

Conveniently located at the intersection of three major roadways, the DoubleTree boasts a fine restaurant in an open air setting.

The more adventurous can discover plenty of dining, shopping, and nightlife just a short drive away in downtown Pittsburgh. The DoubleTree also offers a 24-hour fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a sauna.

(Frank R. Paul, the “grandfather of science-fiction art,” painted the cover for the program book of the 13th World Science Fiction Convention — Clevention — held on September 2 – 5, 1955 at the Manger Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.  Although the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry is not quite as futuristic as Paul’s illustration, the hotel was completely renovated in 2016.

If you have any problems placing your reservation, please contact PulpFest chairman Jack Cullers at jack@pulpfest.com.)

We’re very happy the DoubleTree Cranberry will be hosting the summertime destination for pop culture fans and collectors. PulpFest seeks to honor pulp fiction and pulp art by drawing attention to the many ways they have inspired popular writers, artists, film directors, software developers, game designers, and other creators over the decades.

(As mentioned in our recent post, Doc Savage and Superman resembled each other. Doc was “The Man of Bronze,” while Superman was “The Man of Steel.” Both characters had a “Fortress of Solitude.” Both were named “Clark.” And in a 1934 advertisement, Street & Smith labeled Doc Savage a “superman.” Thus, PulpFest art director has created a PulpFest banner using H. J. Ward’s depiction of Superman and Walter Baumhofer’s “Man of Bronze.”

We hope you’ll join PulpFest in 2019 as we explore the many ways pulp fiction and pulp art have influenced writers, artists, film directors, software developers, game designers, and other pop culture creators over the decades.)
