We’ll be maintaining this pace through the end of the convention on August 18. We may even have an occasional weekend post. However, even our hardworking marketing staff needs a day off every now and then.

Hey Dad! It’s Time to Count the Days to PulpFest!

Jun 14, 2019 by

On Sunday — Father’s Day — it will be sixty days to PulpFest 2019So forget the wallet and the socks, the shaving kit and that many-tools-in-one gadget you can get for eighteen bucks on Amazon. This year, give Dad what he really wants . . . a membership to PulpFest 2019.

PulpFest begins on Thursday, August 15, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just outside of Pittsburgh in Mars, PA. Click the Register button below our homepage banner to learn how to get Dad a membership to the summertime gathering of fans of popular fiction and art. Or skip all that and click our PulpFest Paypal page to sign him up.

The dealers’ room at PulpFest features tens of thousands of pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, digests, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, original art, first edition hardcovers, genre fiction, series books, reference books, dime novels and story papers, Big Little Books, B-Movies, serials and related paper collectibles, old-time radio shows, and Golden and Silver Age comic books, as well as newspaper adventure strips.

PulpFest is particularly known for its programming. This year, we’ll be focusing on the many ways that pulp fiction and pulp art have inspired and continue to inspire creators. We’re calling this year’s theme, “Children of the Pulps and Other Stories,” an examination of the pervasive influence of pulp magazines on pop culture.

And if Dad’s a fan of Science Fiction Grand Master Philip José Farmer, then PulpFest 2019 is the place for him. Since 2011, PulpFest has hosted FarmerCon, a convention that began in Peoria, Illinois, the hometown of Philip José Farmer. Originally a gathering of Farmer fans figuratively, and literally, right outside Phil’s back door, with presentations and picnics at the author’s house.  In 2011, FarmerCon decided to link up with PulpFest and provide Farmer fans with a range of programming, plus a huge room of collectibles.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to register Dad for a PulpFest 2019 membership. While you’re at it, you can also reserve him a room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. Simply click the Book a Room button, found on our homepage. Alternately, you can call 1-800-222-8733 to book a room by telephone. When calling, be sure to mention PulpFest to get the special convention rate. Given the convention’s popularity, we urge everyone to book a hotel room as soon as possible.

It goes without saying that PulpFest not only welcomes dads, but also moms, kids, and everyone in between and beyond. We want everyone to be able to experience “Summer’s Big Pulp Con.” With our terrific programming and spacious dealer’s room, everyone is welcome at PulpFest.

To keep abreast of the convention, please bookmark pulpfest.com or like our Facebook page. Over on Twitter, you’ll find tweets with our updates. You’ll also find selected posts on various newsgroups, including Pulpmags. And don’t forget about our Instagram  page! PulpFest is exploring “The Children of the Pulps” on that site.

(N. C. Wyeth’s painting, “The Call of Spring,” was originally used as the cover art for the first issue of June 1911 of Street & Smith’s general fiction pulp, THE POPULAR MAGAZINE. We believe it’s a very nice fit for the Father’s Day theme featured in our post.

Although pulp magazines had a lurid reputation, many pulps — particularly those of the teens — featured quite tasteful covers. The April 10, 1915 issue of ALL-STORY CAVALIER WEEKLY  — with cover art by Albert Hencke  — is a good example. From about the beginning of 1915 until its last issue in 1920, many covers of Munsey’s ALL-STORY featured portraits of women. Aimed at a general audience, it made perfect sense to use such art to sell the magazine.)

(PulpFest 2018 will focus on the “war pulps” as part of its celebration of the centennial marking the end of World War I. The first magazine devoted to tales of war — WAR STORIES — was introduced by Dell Publishing in late 1926. About a year later, Fiction House issued the first aviation fiction magazine, AIR STORIES. The two genres were combined about half a year later when Dell’s WAR BIRDS hit the stands.

The pilots who flew and fought over Europe’s Western Front were naturals to a public starving for heroes and escape. Their exploits were told again and again in the magazines that followed the debut of WAR BIRDS: BATTLE BIRDS, DARE-DEVIL ACES, FLYING ACES, SKY FIGHTERS, WAR ACES, WINGS, and many others.

One of the more successful of the “air war” magazines was ACES. Published by Fiction House, it debuted at the end of 1928 and lasted for 74 issues. The May 1929 number featured cover art by H. C. Murphy. The artist — best remembered today for his BLACK MASK covers — painted many covers for the Fiction House line of pulps. His work can be found on ACES, ACTION STORIES, AIR STORIES, DETECTIVE BOOK MAGAZINE, FIGHT STORIES, LARIAT, WINGS, and other Fiction House titles.)

Here’s another suggestion for rooms for PulpFest 2016:

http://columbusosu.place.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html

Hyatt Place Columbus is near Ohio State University and offers free shuttle service from 9 AM through 9 PM within a three-mile radius, which includes the Greater Columbus Convention Center and the Hyatt Regency.

The cost is more than the PulpFest rate (no longer available, due to the sell-out at the hotel), but includes free parking, free wifi, and a free breakfast.

There may also be some rooms left in the downtown area, if you’d prefer to stay close to the hotel. You’ll find a list of area hotels at www.columbusconventions.com/thearea.php, 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 heeded our advice and reserved a room early at our host hotel. By staying at the Hyatt Regency, you’ve helped to ensure the convention’s success.

Ganymede CityThe Hyatt Regency Columbus is sold out of rooms for the nights of July 21 through July 23. Thanks to everyone who has reserved a room at our host hotel. By doing so, you’ve helped PulpFest tremendously. We appreciate your support.

If for some reason, you cannot attend and have a room reserved at the Hyatt Regency, please do not cancel your reservation through the hotel.

If you have yet to book a room, please see our post “Hyatt Regency Sell-Out” for one alternative. The convention center also offers a list of area hotels at www.columbusconventions.com/thearea.phpAlternately, you can search for a room at tripadvisor or a similar website to find a hotel near the convention.

We hope to see all of you at “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con.” PulpFest 2016 will take place from July 21 through 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, regardless of where you will be staying!

(It’s not quite downtown Columbus, Ohio, but Ganymede City sure looks like a hopping place. Frank R. Paul imagined this cityscape on Jupiter’s largest moon for the back cover to the February 1942 issue of AMAZING STORIES. We’ll be celebrating the 90th anniversary of that magazine at PulpFest 2016.)

Hyatt Regency Sell-Out

Jun 2, 2016 by

World Science Fiction Convention 1955The Hyatt Regency, PulpFest‘s host hotel is sold out.

The Greater Columbus Convention Center offers a list of area hotels at www.columbusconventions.com/thearea.php. Alternately, you can search for a room at tripadvisor or a similar website to find a hotel. If you’re not from the Columbus area and need a hotel room for your visit to PulpFest 2016, we recommend that you book a room now rather than later. Hotels convenient to the convention are filling up quickly. PulpFest seems to be packing them in.

If you have any questions about registering for the convention, locating a hotel room, or being added to our Hyatt Regency waiting list, please contact PulpFest chairman Jack Cullers at jack@pulpfest.com

(It’s not the Hyatt Regency, but Frank R. Paul’s painting of this futuristic structure sure looks like a cool place to stay. Paul’s creation served as the cover art for the program booklet of the 13th World SF Convention, held in 1955 in Cleveland, Ohio.)
