Let’s All Get Pulped!

PulpFest 2012, America’s summer pulp-fiction convention (now entering its 41st year), will begin tomorrow evening, Thursday, August 9, at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Columbus, Ohio. It will continue through early Sunday.

Events are expected to kick off with a 100th-anniversary salute to Tarzan, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famous feral child turned adult adventurer, who was introduced to the public in Tarzan of the Apes, a novel published in its entirety in the October 1912 issue of Frank Munsey’s All-Story Magazine. The con will also include the presentation of this year’s Rusty Hevelin Service Award (aka The Munsey); the 11 nominees for that prize can be found here.
