2015 FlyerAs we did at our 2014 convention, PulpFest will be offering early-bird shopping in the PulpFest dealers’ room on Thursday, August 13th, from 6 PM until 10 PM. For those who prepay for their memberships, it will cost an additional $25 over the regular membership fee. Early-bird shopping privileges will cost $30 if paid for at the door.

But wait! There’s an even better deal for those who want an extra four hours of shopping at PulpFest 2015! To reward loyal attendees who help to defray the convention’s substantial costs by staying three nights at our host hotel–the Hyatt Regency in the heart of ColumbusPulpFest is pleased to offer free early-bird privileges. That’s a very significant savings of at least $25! Only staff, dealers, and early-bird shoppers will be allowed into the dealers’ room during Thursday evening, August 13th. Please realize that due to travel conditions and other contingencies, PulpFest cannot guarantee that each and every registered dealer will be available during our early-bird hours.

But free early-bird shopping isn’t the only way you can save by staying three nights at the Hyatt Regency. On Saturday, August 15th, PulpFest will be holding a drawing at the close of our annual business meeting for two full membership fee refunds. Two lucky convention attendees who prepay for their membership, book a room for three nights at our host hotel, and choose to attend our business meeting will receive full refunds of their membership fees to PulpFest 2015. You must provide proof of your stay at the Hyatt Regency Columbus and be present at the drawing to receive your free membership refund. Bingo!

Please remember that PulpFest will be sharing downtown Columbus with Matsuricon in August. Therefore, we are urging all of our members to book their hotel rooms for PulpFest 2015 as soon as possible!

The best deal for PulpFest members is to reserve a room at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. Our host hotel is offering a room rate of $116 plus tax per night that includes a complimentary parking pass with in-out privileges and free Wi-Fi. Additional parking passes for people sharing rooms are available for $10 each. You can call 1-888-421-1442 to book a room by telephone. You must register by July 1, 2015 and mention PulpFest to get the special convention rate. Alternately, you can register online by clicking here or the “book a room” button on our home page.

The room rate offered by the Hyatt to PulpFest members is one of the best in the downtown area. Matsuricon members will be paying $123 per night to stay at the Hyatt, plus an additional $12 a day for parking. Dollar-for-dollar, the PulpFest rate at the Hyatt pretty much stifles the competition.

So what are you waiting for? Book a room for three nights and register now for “Summer’s Great Pulp Con.” You’ll get a great deal on a room, free early-bird shopping on Thursday evening, August 13th, from 6 to 10 PM, and a chance to win a full membership refund to PulpFest 2015. It’s a deal you can’t afford to miss!

(Join us August 13th – 16th at PulpFest 2015 for a celebration of H. P. Lovecraft and WEIRD TALES and a salute to the Thrilling Group of pulp magazines.)

Doc Savage Meets the ShadowInterested in selling at PulpFest 2015? If your specialty is pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, first edition hardcovers, original art, series books, dime novels, men’s adventure, true crime, digest, or slick magazines, Big Little Books, B-movies, serials and related collectibles, old-time-radio shows, or Golden and Silver Age comic books, then PulpFest is for you.

The people who attend PulpFest are vintage pop culture enthusiasts. So it’s a great place to sell science-fiction books, mystery and detective fiction, adventure or western fiction, original artwork, and more. And it doesn’t have to be old! Publishers such as Adventures in Bronze, Age of Aces, and Murania Press do well selling their pulp reprints and related materials. So do resellers such as Mike Chomko, Books and Martin Grams. Authors and new pulp publishers such as Dick Enos, William Patrick Maynard, and Airship 27 have found PulpFest to be a great event to market today’s pulp fiction.

PulpFest 2015 will have over 100 six-foot tables in its 15,800 square-foot dealers’ room. Wall tables will cost $80 and island tables will be $70. Dealers will also be required to purchase regular three-day memberships for themselves and their helpers. For those dealers who will be staying at the Hyatt Regency Columbus, PulpFest is pleased to offer a third table free for every two tables that they rent, a tremendous savings. That’s buy two and get one free to thank such dealers for helping to defray the convention’s substantial costs by staying at the host hotel.

We’ll also be holding a random drawing for two full membership refunds to PulpFest 2015. Two lucky convention attendees, including dealers, who prepay for their membership, book a room for three nights at the Hyatt Regency, and choose to attend our business meeting will get full refunds of their membership payments.

Our dealers’ room will be open at 10 AM on Friday, August 14th, and remain open until 4:30 PM. We’ll also have hours on Saturday and Sunday, August 15th & 16th. Please click the schedule button on our home page for more details. And don’t forget about our early-bird hours on Thursday evening, August 13th, from 6 PM to 10 PM, when dedicated fans of pulp and genre fiction will enjoy an extra four hours of shopping.

Throughout the coming months, we’ll be writing about the dealers who will be selling at PulpFest 2015. Our marketing and programming director, Mike Chomko, will be putting these posts together and releasing them through our home page and social media sites. So if you’re planning to attend PulpFest 2015 as a dealer and would like to be included in this advertising campaign, please contact Mike by writing to mike@pulpfest.com. You can also reach Mike by calling 863-606-8878 and leaving a message.

Weird Tales 31-11Friday the 13th and black cats don’t have to be unlucky! I’m not sure you can convince this young lady of that fact, but if she realized that PulpFest 2015 would be starting in exactly five months, she certainly would think that her luck had changed. Heck, she might even die happy!

PulpFest will start in five short months. Thursday, August 13th is not that far away. That’s the date when “Summer’s Great Pulp Con” will start at the Hyatt Regency in beautiful downtown Columbus, Ohio. The convention’s dealers’ room in the spacious Regency Ballroom will be open from 6 PM to 10 PM for early-bird shopping. PulpFest members who will be staying at the Hyatt for three nights will be admitted free of charge. For those members who will unfortunately be staying elsewhere, early-bird privileges can be purchased for an additional $25 (if prepaid) or $30 (at the door). Click the registration button below our home page banner to learn how to register for the convention.

PulpFest 2015 will also have a full slate of programming on Thursday, beginning at 8 PM. We’ll have presentations on pulp writer Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, the founder of DC Comics; detective and western heroes of the Thrilling Group of pulp magazines; The Shadow; and Street & Smith comics. We’ll also be screening a couple of films inspired by the work of horror master H. P. Lovecraft. Click the schedule button near the right end of our home page banner to learn more about our programming plans.

The Hyatt Regency Columbus is an extremely popular venue for conventions, including the World Fantasy Convention and the highly popular Origins Game Fair. That’s just one of many reasons that PulpFest has selected the Hyatt as its host hotel. Click the hotel button below our home page banner to learn more about this great venue.

This August, PulpFest will be sharing downtown Columbus with Matsuricon, a gathering of Japanese anime and pop culture enthusiasts. Although many of these fans will be coming for a single day, there will be a good number who will be staying at the Hyatt Regency as well as other hotels in downtown Columbus. Therefore, we are urging all of our members to book their hotel rooms for PulpFest 2015 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The earlier you place your room reservation for this year’s PulpFest, the greater chance you have of landing a room. Your organizing committee is working with Matsuricon to help both gatherings have a great and fun-filled weekend.

You can reserve a room at the Hyatt Regency at the special convention rate of $116 per night plus tax, which includes one free parking pass and free Wi-Fi, if you do so by July 1, 2015. Additional cars will be charged at the discounted rate of $10 overnight with in/out privileges. Matsuricon members will be paying nearly twenty dollars more for rooms and parking.

There are two ways to place a reservation. You can book a room online by clicking here, an electronic reservations interface customized for PulpFest attendees. Alternately, click the “book a room” button on our home page. You can also call 1-888-421-1442 to book a room by telephone. However, be sure to mention PulpFest 2015 to get the special convention rate. By staying at the Hyatt Regency, you’ll help to ensure the convention’s success.

So what are you waiting for? Start planning now to attend PulpFest 2015 and join hundreds of pulp fiction fans at the pop-culture center of the universe. We look forward to seeing you in August in beautiful, downtown Columbus.

(In 1927 C. C. Senf began to paint covers and draw pen and ink story illustrations for WEIRD TALES, an innovative pulp magazine that featured otherworldly and macabre subjects. He drew hundreds of black-and-white interior story illustrations, and he painted forty-five covers for “The Unique Magazine,” the last of which appeared on the July 1932 issue. Pictured above is the November 1931 issue. Just a few days before the 125th anniversary of the author’s birth, PulpFest 2015 will salute H. P. Lovecraft and WEIRD TALES, the magazine that published the bulk of his fictional work. Many thanks to David Saunders of The Field Guide to Wild American Pulp Artists for helping us to keep our facts straight.)

Early indications are that we will surpass last year’s show both in our number of registrations and rooms booked at the hotel. We are hoping that this year’s con will be our biggest and best yet. For some time, we’ve been receiving registrations every day, many from people who have never attended PulpFest before. If you’ve been thinking about attending, but have yet to pull the trigger, you probably should call the hotel and make your reservation immediately. You can do so by calling 1-888-421-1442 or 1-614-463-1234. Please be sure to mention PulpFest when placing your reservation.

The Hyatt Regency is located at 350 North High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The hotel is south of I-670, just 15-20 minutes from Columbus International Airport. In the heart of the active Arena District, the Hyatt Regency is just a few minutes’ walk from the trendy Short North Arts District. There are shops and restaurants galore right outside the hotel’s entrance. Click here for directions.

For those who will be staying at the Hyatt Regency during the convention, parking is free at the Chestnut Street Garage, one block south of the hotel. The garage is connected to the hotel via an enclosed and covered walkway. For those visiting PulpFest for the day, you can also use the Chestnut Street Garage. Rates vary based on time, but $16 will get you a day’s parking with in and out privileges. Additional parking is available at the Convention Center underground garage or the Center’s east lot. Again, rates are time-based and $14 will get you parking for 12 hours with no in and out privileges. Click here for a more detailed look at parking near the Hyatt Regency. Alternately, if you don’t mind walking a few blocks, there are many inexpensive options. Click here for an interactive parking map of Columbus and search near 350 North High Street.

From 4 PM to 11 PM on Thursday, the dealers’ room will be open for exhibitors to set up their displays. At this point, we urge all of our dealers to take full advantage of our generous load-in and set-up period. While unloading and transporting your goods should be very easy–there’s a back entrance to the hotel for loading and we have been granted exclusive use of a freight elevator–there is bound to be a certain amount of disorientation as folks negotiate their way around the Hyatt. Remember that we’ll also be offering early-bird shopping in the dealers’ room from 6 to 10 PM on Thursday evening, an extra four hours of selling opportunities to people who are ready to buy!

All PulpFest attendees will be able to submit material for inclusion in the Saturday Night Auction. For additional information, please visit our Auctions page under “Programming” or contact Barry Traylor via email at barry@pulpfest.com. In addition to 104 auction lots submitted by Joseph Saine and the Worrell and Powers estates, we will be accepting about eighty additional lots from registered members of PulpFest 2014. However, due to the substantial amount of material already submitted, there may be limits on the number of lots that can be offered by each consignee. The sooner you submit your consignment to Mike Chomko, the more likely that it will be included in our auction. Mike’s tables will be along the wall, across from the registration desk just inside the entrance to the PulpFest dealers’ room. All lots submitted must have a minimum value of $20. All lots that do not receive a bid of $20 or more will be passed. If you plan to offer an auction lot with a reserve price, your reserve must be $50 or more. No lots with a reserve price of less than $50 will be accepted. PulpFest reserves the right to reject any auction material that is unlikely to meet our minimum bid or reserve price standards as well as our content standards. The convention charges sellers 10% of the selling price for anything sold in the auction.

For those attendees who would like to ship their purchases to their homes, PulpFest 2014 has arranged for a local UPS provider to be available at the hotel on Sunday, August 10th. He will be arriving between 11 AM and noon and will stay as long as his services are needed. Further information is available on our FAQ  page.

The entire PulpFest 2014 organizing committee–Mike Chomko, Jack and Sally Cullers, Ed Hulse, Barry Traylor, and Chuck Welch–is looking forward to seeing you all in just a few days. Have a safe trip to Columbus.
