Now With Extra Pulp

Members of the organizing committee for PulpFest, a celebration of classic pulp fiction and artwork, have announced the names of 16 nominees for the 2010 Munsey Award. That commendation is presented annually to “a deserving person who has given of himself or herself for the betterment of the pulp community, be it through disseminating knowledge about the pulps or through publishing or other efforts to preserve and to foster interest in the pulp magazines we all love and enjoy.” Among this year’s contenders are graphic and Web designer Chris Kalb; Howard Wright, the longtime publisher of the Doc Savage fan magazine, The Bronze Gazette; and Don Herron, creator of San Francisco’s famous Dashiell Hammett Tour.

The winner will be declared during this year’s PulpFest, which is scheduled to take place from July 30 to August 1 in Columbus, Ohio.
