Pulpfest 2016
Pulp magazines were named for the cheap paper on which they were printed. Nearly two decades after Frank A. Munsey pioneered the format in late 1896, the rough-paper periodicals began to specialize with the introduction of DETECTIVE STORY MAGAZINE by Street & Smith. During the 1920s more magazines geared toward specific genres were introduced: LOVE STORY, SEA STORIES, SPORT STORY MAGAZINE, GHOST STORIES, WAR STORIES, and others. The movement would culminate in single-character magazines such as THE SHADOW or DOC SAVAGE MAGAZINE.

PulpFest 2016 will be celebrating both H. G. Wells and AMAZING STORIES at its convention in July. Please join us at “the pop culture center of the universe” for “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con.”

The Guest of Honor will be author, editor, musician, and science-fiction and pulp fan Ted White.

We're also planning to offer a wide array of programming at PulpFest 2016, including a salute to the---

*100th anniversary of the genre pulp magazine

*120th anniversary of the first pulp magazine, THE ARGOSY

*80th anniversaries of THE WHISPERER and THE SKIPPER

*150th anniversary of the birth of H. G. Wells — author of “The Time Machine,” “War of the Worlds,” and other classic science-fiction novels

*90th anniversary of the first science-fiction pulp, AMAZING STORIES
