In Anticipation of PulpFest....

....I've cleaned out a shelf.

Although my budget will certainly be limited this year, I have made up a Wish List of pulps I hope to find at PulpFest. These would be LOVE STORY,

SEA STORIES,

GHOST STORIES,

ROMANTIC RANGE, REAL LOVE (1930-32), and TRUE LOVE STORIES.

Oh, and of course BLACK MASK and DIME DETECTIVE, especially those with stories by D.L. Champion.

Some (or all) of you are probably shaking your heads at some of the choices my wish list. All I can say is: I have my reasons.

For information on PulpFest 2011, which is from July 29 through July 31 in Columbus, Ohio, go here.

I'm gettin' psyched. Not sure why considering all the work I let myself in for at the con. Getting ready for the con isn't so bad as most of my work prior to PulpFest consists of sitting in front of my computer contacting sources etc. The etc. part eats up a lot of time. Make sure to check out Randy Vanderbeek's table as she always brings a lot of Romance pulps. In fact I bought a couple from her last year.
As far as what you are looking for at PulpFest we should all collect what we enjoy, which of course it what makes it fun.

I'm glad to see Laurie preparing for PulpFest. When scholars refer to the Eighth Wonder of the World, they speak of The Great Wall of China, The Taj Mahal, or perhaps Stonehenge.

But for old magazine collectors, The Eighth Wonder is the dealer's room at PulpFest or Windy City. Now there is a sight to take away the breath of a collector! Thousands of pulps, digests, vintage paperbacks, slicks, etc.

I became addicted when I attended my first Pulpcon in 1972 and I'm still searching for obscure wants, some of which I find every year. Book and magazine collecting: the grandest game in the world...

Often readers and collectors tell me they cannot attend for some reason but believe me, you owe it to yourself to dive into a room full of pulps, most of which will be reasonably priced.

I'm salivating over the thought of an empty shelve and pulps to fill it.

Charles, that's because you have Pulp Fever. Fortunately, there is no cure.

I do not question your taste at all, especially regarding your desire for D. L. Champion stories and the first Inspector Allhoff issue pictured. Your earlier comments about the Allhoff collection were appreciated.
