THE PULPSTER Wants You in 2020!

Feb 17, 2020 by

THE PULPSTER #29One of the highlights of PulpFest for almost 30 years is the latest issue of THE PULPSTER. This pulp-packed publication is available annually to all PulpFest members.

THE PULPSTER reflects the themes of each year’s PulpFest. So this year, we’re considering articles on BLACK MASK magazine, artist Margaret Brundage, fictioneers Edgar Rice Burroughs and Leigh Brackett, and author L. Frank Baum. (Oh, and Ray Bradbury, but we’re already booked for articles on him.)

But in addition to the PulpFest themes, THE PULPSTER also celebrates all things pulp. So we’re open to proposed articles on other pulp topics, from the magazines, the authors and artists, and collecting.

THE PULPSTER reaches a serious core of pulp magazine and popular culture collectors attending PulpFest. So if you’re interested in marketing to these collectors, we have a range of ad sizes, both black-and-white and color, available.

If you have a proposal for an article, please contact editor Bill Lampkin. Articles and artwork must be submitted by the end of April. Bill can be reached at

For advertising, please contact PulpFest marketing and programming director and THE PULPSTER publisher Mike Chomko at

Mike also has a very limited number of back issues of THE PULPSTER available. Drop him a line if interested.

(The cover art for this mock-up of THE PULPSTER #29 was originally painted by Margaret Brundage for the October 1933 WEIRD TALES.)

The PulpsterEven though the next issue of THE PULPSTER won’t be released until PulpFest 2020, we’re already starting work on it.

Top on the to-do list is filling out the lineup for the issue, and that means turning to you for those for articles.

The theme of next year’s PulpFest is “Bradbury, BLACK MASK, and Brundage.” We’re always happy to have articles related to that theme, but we don’t limit contributions to the convention’s theme. We like to have a variety of articles in each issue, articles related to the men and women who wrote, illustrated, edited, and published the pulps, and to the pulp collecting hobby itself.

There are two routes you can take to help us out:

• Do you have an idea for an article that you would like to write for THE PULPSTER? Please let us know.

• Or, do you have an idea for an article that you would like to read in THE PULPSTER (but not necessarily write)? Let us know that, too, and we will see what we can do about finding someone to write it.

'The Pulpster' #28 (2019)You can drop editor Bill Lampkin an email at The sooner he hears from you, the better. He has to plan space for articles and start collecting artwork and illustrations.

If you’d like to advertise in THE PULPSTER, please write to PulpFest marketing and programming director (and THE PULPSTER‘s publisher) Mike Chomko at Mike can provide pricing and print specifications.

There are limited quantities of issues #27 (2018) and #28 (2019) remaining in stock at Mike Chomko, Books. Visit his website for details.

If you missed out getting your copy of THE PULPSTER this year, don’t delay. Register for PulpFest 2020 to ensure you get a copy of next year’s issue. (If you can’t attend PulpFest, consider registering as a supporting member, and your free copy of the issue will be mailed following the convention.)

(The cover art for THE PULPSTER #28 was painted by Rudolph Belarski  for the September 1939 BLACK BOOK DETECTIVE, published by Ned Pines’ Standard Magazines.)
