'The Pulpster' #26 (2017)

The Pulpster #26 (2017)

As you may have noticed, a new cover appeared on the Back Numbers page last week. It’s a reminder that number 26 of The Pulpster is just around the corner (as is PulpFest 2017).

This year’s cover reflects the “Dangerous Dames” portion of PulpFest 2017’s themes (the others being hard-boiled dicks and “a few psychos” — that last one celebrating the 100th anniversary of fictioneer Robert Bloch’s birth).

The cover features a painting that artist Norman Saunders did for the July 1949 number of Black Mask. (A poster of that painting is available in the “gift shop” at the Norman Saunders website, run by his son, David Saunders, who has graciously given us permission to use the artwork.)

As for what’s inside of number 26, well, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out. We have some articles in hand, and others are busily being worked on by our contributors. I promise it will be a nice mix of articles about the pulp magazines, the characters, the folks who put the old fiction magazines out, and collecting the pulps.

In addition to articles, The Pulpster includes advertisements for those wanting to reach dedicated pulp collectors and readers. Publisher Mike Chomko is the person to contact regarding advertising space and rates. You can find out more about advertising specs by clicking the Advertising link in the menu at top.

Stay tuned!
