Pulpfest 2019 trip report - photos

Lot of the photos i took this year were out of focus, which is why you won't see as many pictures of the artwork as usual. Sorry about that, but enjoy what i do have; there's quite a few rare pulps that I've never seen earlier in person in a decade of collecting...

  1. As your photos show, there were many rare pulp titles at Pulpfest. I remember THE THRILL BOOK issue as being priced around $1000. Which would be a bargain price due to the rarity of THRILL BOOK but the condition was fair to poor. I've never owned a THRILL BOOK but I was once offered a complete set of the magazine but all I could come up with at the time(about 40 years ago), was $2500, so I did not get it.

  2. Terrific photo report, Sai. Thanks for sharing photos of the many rarities one can find at PulpFest. These may be the "pick of the crop," but there are plenty of bargains available at the convention as well. So for those who were not able to attend, start making your plans now to make PulpFest 2020 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh -- Cranberry in Mars, PA. It will take place August 6 - 9 and celebrate "Bradbury, BLACK MASK, and Brundage" (with a touch of Burroughs and Brackett thrown in for good measure). Learn more at www.pulpfest.com
