April 21-23, 2017

Legendary comic artist and historian, Jim Steranko has agreed to join us to talk about Martin Goodman, pulp history and more.

Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 
Our theme this coming convention is a combo of Red Circle Pulps and Gangster Mags celebration.
We have a guest that worked for the Goodman Company, but until we firm up the details, can't say much more.

Gangster magazines began with The Underworld in 1927, thereby it's 90th Anniversary. 
A genre that was heavily used by Harold Hersey. 
Which leads us into some exciting news regarding our upcoming Friday Night Auction. 
A collection of some truly remarkable pulps will be available for auction, and you can check out some of the sample issues in our newsletter
[all pulps in the newsletter will be in the auction and more] and on our Facebook and Website.

The Korshak Collection: Illustrations Of Imaginative Literature
June 07, 2017 to August 26, 2017

The Society is proud to present a rare opportunity to view some of the greatest fantasy masterpieces of our time. Presenting a grouping of illustrations of imaginative literature from the Korshak Collection, on display in Gallery 1 & 2. 

"As a young man I was fortunate enough to grow up with great art in my bedroom. My father, Erle Korshak, was the publisher of a pioneering science fiction book company, Shasta Publishers. Shasta ushered in the transition of important science fiction literature from magazines printed on cheap pulp paper to hardcover, library-quality books. Much of that art lived with us at our house and at the company office in Chicago.

In particular, the J. Allen St. John illustration for the 1941 Amazing Stories magazine cover of John Carter battling the Dead in "The City of Mummies" lured me into a fantastic world that I never knew existed. I read and enjoyed the Edgar Rice Burroughs story behind the illustration but for me, the illustration itself gave me a sense of wonder I had never previously experienced.

So began a lifelong love affair with illustration art. This collection is a vision of the fantastic. It is one of great illustrators, as well as illustrations that had a great influence on imaginative literature."

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, Pennsylvania.
Thursday, July 27 through Sunday, July 30, 2017

Over the last few months, the PulpFest organizing committee has been searching for a new venue. We’ve explored such cities as Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Mobile, Akron, and Louisville. After eight enjoyable years in Columbus, Ohio, it was time for a new home. We are happy to report that we’ve found a fantastic new venue in Pennsylvania, just nineteen miles north of the exciting city of Pittsburgh.

PulpFest 2017 will take place July 27 – 30 at the newly and beautifully renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. We are currently arranging guest accommodations for our members at the hotel. Conveniently located at the intersection of three major roadways, the DoubleTree boasts a world-class restaurant in an open air setting. There are many other restaurants nearby — some within walking distance — suitable for a variety of tastes. The more adventurous can discover plenty of dining, shopping, and nightlife just a short drive away in downtown Pittsburgh. The DoubleTree offers ample free parking as well as free wifi for its guests. Please stay tuned as we iron out the details by bookmarking pulpfest.com.

Start planning to attend PulpFest 2017, “Summer’s Hardboiled Pulp Con.” We’ll be celebrating pulp fiction and pulp art, and the many ways they’ve inspired writers, artists, filmmakers, game designers, and other creators. Join us next July outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as we explore “Hardboiled Dicks, Dangerous Dames, and a Few Psychos” at PulpFest 2017.

By staying at our host hotel, you help to defray the convention’s substantial costs. You also help demonstrate to our hotel that PulpFest is a top-notch convention that will help their bottom line. Thanks for helping to make PulpFest look good.
There are still rooms available at the newly and beautifully renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry. You can book your room directly through the PulpFest website.

Hunt Valley Wyndham (recently changed now to a Marriott)

Announcing the first half of our celebrity lineup for our 2017 event!
Remember you can purchase your admission tickets in advance through the website and save money. And book your hotel room early before they are sold out!
Hotel: (410) 785-7000

VENDOR HOURS: Thursday and Friday 9 am to 7 pm, Saturday 9 am to 5 pm
​CELEBRITY HOURS: Thursday and Friday, 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5 pm
​MOVIE ROOM: 24 hours a day
​PANELS & PRESENTATIONS: 9 am to 9 pm (See schedule of events)

Celebrity Lineup (So far)

The star of the original MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and SPACE: 1999 made appearances on tons of TV shows including THE TWILIGHT ZONE and THE OUTER LIMITS.
Among his earliest appearances is Hitchcock's NORTH BY NORTHWEST. Mr. Landau is also an Oscar winner for his role of Bela Lugosi in ED WOOD (1994).

From AMERICAN GRAFFITI to LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY (she was Shirley for anyone trying to keep track of who was who), Cindy Williams loves to meet and greet fans.
This year you'll have a chance to meet up with her and get her autograph! 

From DALLAS to FALCON CREST, you remember her role in both daytime and primetime soap operas.
Like all of the other celebrities she will be signing autographs and posing for photos with fans.

If you don't remember THE MAN FROM ATLANTIS, you should. She was Patrick Duffy's assistant/love interest.
A really great show that had too short of a run. She was Doogie Howser's mother on DOOGIE HOWSER, MD, and appeared in the recent TRON: LEGACY.
(If you haven't figured out the pattern here -- wink, wink -- of a major celebrity yet to be announced, keep thinking about it...)
We are excited to know Belinda will be a guest at this year's convention!

Few women can claim to be a three-time Bond girl but Maud Adams can.
She was Christopher Lee's lover in THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, the title role of OCTOPUSSY, and then made a third appearance briefly in the background of A VIEW TO A KILL.
Okay, so the last one is a stretch. But she is probably the best remembered Bond girl for having been prominent in two 007 movies! 

When Sean Connery returned in the role of 007 for NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, the beautiful Barbara Carrera signed on to play the female lead.
From THE ISLAND OF DR. MUREAU to the TV mini-series CENTENNIAL, she was the exotic feature you could not get enough of.
