PulpFest 2013

PulpFest 2013 Preliminary

For the second straight year, the Hyatt Regency Columbus was host to “Summer’s Great Pulp Con.” With its spacious dealers’ room and immaculate accommodations, the hotel was very much appreciated by the nearly 400 pulp fiction fans in attendance at PulpFest 2013 from July 25th through July 28th. And the Arena District that surrounds the hotel is simply beautiful and filled with restaurants.

In the pages following, you’ll be able to read several convention reports from sources such as Mystery*File and  Laurie’s Wild West. You’ll also find many of the posts that were released on the convention’s website in the time leading up to the 2013 convention and learn about the wide-ranging and thoughtful programming of the fifth PulpFest, the way the convention was promoted,  our award winners, and much, much more.

If you’d like to hear recordings of some of the panel presentations from PulpFest 2013, please visit Ric Croxton’s podcast about books, comics, movie serials, old-time radio, and TV series, The Book Cave and search for “PulpFest.”
