Pulpfest 2010

Pulp magazines, which were an inexpensive and popular delight between the 1890s and the 1950s, consisted of genre fiction stories—detective mysteries, science fiction/fantasy, westerns, horror, action/adventure, and romance. They were so named because of the cheap wood pulp from which the paper was made. Famous characters of the pulps include The Shadow, Tarzan, The Spider, G-8 and His Battle Aces, and Doc Savage.

Friday, July 30 - Sunday, August 1, Pulpfest 2010 is taking place in Columbus, Ohio. Dealers will sell pulps and pulp-related paper collectibles, such as posters and artwork. There will also be panels, auctions, and award presentations. William F. Nolan, the co-creator of Logan's Run and the editor of The Black Mask Boys, will be the guest of honor.

Ray will man a dealer booth at the conference, held in the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center. Visit the official website for a programming schedule, list of dealers, and more information.
