The dealers' room at PulpFest 2019

PulpFest 2019 is over a month past now, but you can partly re-live it through the reports and recordings posted online.

We’re sorry if you couldn’t make PulpFest this year. You missed a pulp-packed weekend of programming, readings, signings, dealers, and more. Hopefully these links will encourage you to make the trip next August 6-9 to PulpFest 2020.

  • And ThePulp.Net did a Facebook Live video walk-through of the PulpFest 2019 dealers’ room.

This year’s PulpFest may be over, but there’s plenty of time to start planning to attend 2020’s gathering. The convention returns to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, just north of Pittsburgh, from Thursday, August 6, through Sunday, August 9. See you then!

(The dealers’ room at PulpFest 2020 was a popular gathering spot during the day, as pulp fans and collectors searched for items and visited with friends.)
