Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention is a few months away. 

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. 


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.


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for nearly three decades, Lord was instrumental in popularizing the works of Howard, and in making reams of previously unpublished Howard material available.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”.
