AbeBooks Invites You to PulpFest 2017: July 27-30


AbeBooks is excited to announce our renewed sponsorship of PulpFest, the “pop culture center of the universe.” The annual convention, renowned for its interesting and entertaining programming revolving around pulp fiction and pulp art, is taking place this year in Pittsburgh, PA, from July 27-30.

Planned as the summertime destination for fans and collectors of vintage popular fiction and related materials, PulpFest seeks to honor pulp fiction and pulp art by drawing attention to the many ways they have inspired writers, artists, film directors, software developers, game designers, and other creators over the decades.

This year, PulpFest will pay tribute to the hardboiled detective genre and female pulp characters. The convention is also celebrating the 100th anniversary of Robert Bloch, the author of the classic horror novel PSYCHO, who was a pulp writer in his early years. AbeBooks sellers to exhibit their products include Dark Star Books, Tim’s BooksJohn W. Knott, Jr. and Dearly Departed Books.

In addition to their exciting programming, PulpFest will host a large dealers’ room featuring tens of thousands of pulp magazines, vintage paperbacks, digests, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, original art, first edition hardcovers, series books, reference books, dime novels and story papers, Big Little Books, B-Movies, serials and related paper collectibles, old-time radio shows, and Golden and Silver Age comic books, as well as newspaper adventure strips. There will also be an auction held on Saturday night that promises to be one for the ages!
