AbeBooks Welcomes You to PulpFest

Jul 18, 2016 by

AbeBooks Welcomes You to PulpFestAs we announced in May, PulpFest has a new sponsor. It’s AbeBooks.com, the online marketplace for millions of brand new books, used books, rare books, and out-of-print books from around the world. Just like PulpFest, our new sponsor has a passion for books. Booksellers love AbeBooks for helping them to sell books to buyers around the globe – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Buyers love AbeBooks for helping them to find and purchase books from its vast online inventory, stretching around the world with six international sites. The AbeBooks blog, Reading Copy, is a valuable daily source of company and book-related news.

PulpFest is extremely pleased to welcome AbeBooks as a sponsor. Not only has AbeBooks added their name to our growing list of web site sponsors — you’ll find their logo on our home page — they have also asked to sponsor this year’s PulpFest name tags and program guides. Additionally, AbeBooks will be offering two hardcover copies of the fourth volume in Mike Ashley’s HISTORY OF THE SCIENCE-FICTION MAGAZINE as door prizes at the July convention. Valued at over $100 each, PulpFest will be randomly selecting two members present at this year’s convention to receive hardbound copies of Mike Ashley’s new work of science fiction scholarship.

AbeBooks remains a company with a passion for books as well as a “passion for pulps!” Be sure to watch for the AbeBooks banner at PulpFest 2016 and you may be one of our two lucky winners who take home a copy of Mike Ashley’s SCIENCE FICTION REBELS.

While you’re waiting for the arrival of PulpFest, here’s a little something to help you bide the time, thanks to the generosity of AbeBooks:

We hope to see you at “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con,” taking place from Thursday evening, July 21 and running through Sunday afternoon, July 24 in the Columbus, Ohio Arena district at the Hyatt Regency hotel and the city’s spacious convention center. You’ll have a FANTASTIC time!

Please remember that the Hyatt Regency Columbus is sold out of rooms for July 21 through July 23. At www.columbusconventions.com/thearea.php, you’ll find a list of area hotels courtesy of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Alternately, you can search for a room at tripadvisor or a similar website to find a hotel near the convention. Thanks so much to everyone who has reserved a room at our host hotel. By staying at the Hyatt Regency, you’ve helped to ensure the convention’s success.

(Throughout the year, PulpFest has used Frank R. Paul’s cover art from the August 1927 issue of AMAZING STORIES, illustrating H. G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds,” to publicize the convention. Watch for it again as AbeBooks.com welcomes you to this year’s edition of “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con!”)
