All these years, I still haven't made it to PulpFest, but I'm going to make a big effort this year and hope that Real Life accomodates me. One reason I'd like to go, beyond the obvious, is the panel on pulp westerns, described thusly: "Don Hutchison, Bill Nolan, Robert Randisi, Ed Hulse, and Laurie Powers discuss the evolution of the Western from Max Brand and the general fiction pulps through Wild West Weekly and beyond." Wonder if I could get them all to sign one of my Max Brand books... Plus, there's a separate interview of Bill Nolan scheduled. Yes, he of Logan's Run fame. I can remember reading that book before I ever really developed a taste for SF.
PulpFest runs Friday, July 30th – Sunday, August 1st at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio.
