February 24, 2018!

Pulp Adventurecon 2018 fast approaches!
Universal Palms Hotel, Powerline Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Show time: 10am - 5pm; Admission: $5.00


The Floridian Pulp Adventurecon is back! While the northern east coast hibernates, prepare to discover more pulp magazine and golden age comic treasures!

This year, Golden Age grandmaster Allen Bellman joins the show as our special guest. In 1942, Allen began working at Timely Comics (which eventually became Marvel Comics). He contibuted illustrations to several pulps published by Martin Goodman, and inked backgrounds for Syd Shores on Captain America. He penciled and inked The Human Torch, The Patriot, and many others. He created the one-page recurring mystery feature, Let's Play Detective. Later, Allen worked at Lev Gleason Publications before leaving the comic book industry in the 1950s.

Allen will have copies of Timely Confidential: When the Golden Age of Comics was Young, his rollicking memoir of working for Marvel Comics and Lev Gleason Publications. Learn more about his book, published by Bold Venture Press.

Pulp Adventurecon's theme is largely pulp magazines, but also includes golden age comics, big little books, mens adventure pulps, movie memorabilia, and more vintage paper material.

F. PAUL WILSON Guest of Honor 2018

Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 
CELEBRATING HAROLD HERSEY’S 125TH BIRTHDAY AND THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF WINGS AND THE AIR WAR PULPS

We’re just one month away from the 18th annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL. 
We’re very pleased to announce that NYT bestselling author F. Paul Wilson will be our Guest of Honor at our 2018 con!

Wilson is the author of over 50 books, many of which feature his popular anti-hero, Repairman Jack. 
Among his numerous awards are the Bram Stoker Award, the Prometheus Award, the Porgie Award and the Inkpot Award. 
His first published story, “The Cleaning Machine,” appeared in the March 1971 issue of Startling Mystery Stories, while his second appeared a month later, in the April 1971 issue of the John Campbell edited Analog. 
His newest novel, “The God Gene,” is scheduled to be released by Forge Books on January 2, 2018. 
Wilson contributed the Foreword to The Art of the Pulps, published in October 2017, where he shared that
“I love the pulps. … I’ve been a fan of the pulps since my teens…” 
We’re excited to have him as our GoH, and we know that our attendees will enjoy meeting him at the convention!

Mark it on your calendar...our annual convention that you won't want to miss. 
With over 150 tables filled with great popular culture material, hundreds of pieces of art on display and for sale, thousands upon thousands of pulps, paperbacks, comic books, digests, hardbacks, and pulp reprints available. 

Our annual Friday Night Auction is another one to behold.  Material from the Glenn Lord estate, [former executor of the Robert E. Howard estate] it's going to be a doozie.
Nearly a copy of every pulp Howard appeared in will be auctioned.  Artwork from Howard books will be auctioned. 
And a special piece of Howard memorabilia that will be the talk of the convention will be auctioned. 
Also, don't forget about our standard Saturday Night auction as well. With more rare and interesting material being offered.

Our Guest of Honor F. Paul Wilson will not only be a subject of a panel discussion, but also will be commenting live while Windy City Film Festival plays his novel adaptation "The Keep." 
Sort of Windy City Film Festival meets Mystery Science Theatre.

Author/Pulp Historian John Locke will present his newest in-depth look into the pulps with the Secret Origins of Weird Tales. 
It is an inside look at how Weird Tales came to be, and the strange forces that lead to the production of one of pulp fandoms most prized publications.

Pre-registration for membership is still available. 
Once you register in advance, you may pick up your membership Thursday night at the Con Suite.  CLICK HERE to register.

Planning on staying at the Con Hotel?  Be sure to reserve your rooms early. 
You have until the March 20th [or when the block of rooms sell out] to get a room at the convention rate. 
CLICK HERE to go to the hotel site to make your reservation. 


Friday Night Auction to feature material from the estate of Glenn Lord

This year’s Friday night auction will draw on material from the estate of Glenn Lord. As literary executor of the Robert E. Howard estate for nearly three decades, Lord was instrumental in popularizing the works of Howard, and in making reams of previously unpublished Howard material available. It would be difficult to overstate his contributions to Howard’s legacy. Not surprisingly, his own pulp collection was centered around Howard, but also contained many other titles as well. If you’re a fan of pulps – and particularly if you’re a fan of the man who brought us Conan and so many other memorable characters – you won’t want to miss it!

We’ll be posting more details over the coming weeks concerning the pulps, fanzines and other rare material that will be in the auction.
One piece of original art that will be in the auction – Frank Utpatel’s original cover art for the second Robert E. Howard Arkham House collection, “The Dark Man and Others”.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, Pennsylvania
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.
