Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale
Thursday, July 26 through Sunday, July 29, 2018
Are you thinking about attending PulpFest 2018?
You’re probably wondering what to expect from this year’s convention.
PulpFest is known for its great programming and the line-up that we’re planning for next year’s convention is shaping up to be one of our best.
2018 marks the centennial of the armistice that ended the First World War.
Also called “The War to End All Wars” and “The Great War,” PulpFest — The Great Convention — will be honoring the 100th anniversary
of the war’s end by focusing on the so-called “war pulps” of the early twentieth century and the depiction of war in popular culture.
We’ll explore the work of Leonard H. Nason — who wrote about soldiers and war for ADVENTURE and other magazines —
and have presentations on artistic interpretations of war in comic books, pulps, and men’s adventure magazines.
Author and anthologist Don Hutchison will moderate a panel on “Fighting Aces of War Skies: The Pulps Take Flight” and
Henry G. Franke, III — the editor of THE BURROUGHS BULLETIN — will discuss “Edgar Rice Burroughs and The Great War.”
Also, Robert Gould will talk about his father — John Fleming Gould — the interior artist who illustrated every issue of G-8 AND HIS BATTLE ACES.
We’ll also be celebrating the century mark of Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer.
PulpFest and its associated convention — FarmerCon — will be saluting the acclaimed author of such works as ESCAPE FROM LOKI, THE DARK HEART OF TIME, the classic Riverworld series, and more.
Join us for panels and presentations on “World Building and Writing in the Nine Continuity,” “The Dark Heart of Loki: Philip José Farmer Revisits 1918,” and the life and legacy of Philip José Farmer.
We’ll also be showing the French documentary MOI, TARZAN, featuring Farmer, George McWhorter, and Francis Lacassin.
And don’t forget about our Guest of Honor — Joe Lansdale — the author of over forty novels and numerous short stories.
Winner of the Edgar Award, ten Bram Stoker Awards, the Horror Writers Association Lifetime Achievement Award,
the British Fantasy Award, the Inkpot Award for Contributions to Science Fiction and Fantasy, and many other awards,
Joe will be talking with Tony Davis — editor emeritus of THE PULPSTER and winner of the 1999 Lamont Award — on Saturday evening, July 28, in the PulpFest programming room.
Mr. Lansdale will also be available at other times during the convention.
