Join us Thursday, August 7th – Sunday, August 10th at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus, Ohio for PulpFest 2014

PulpFest is a convention for readers and collectors of the old adventure and SF magazines from the 1930s through the 1950s. These magazines are part of the foundation that gaming was created on. These stories started the stories of the Shadow, Doc Savage, Conan and featured the Cthulhu Mythos stories by H. P. Lovecraft along with a the works of writes like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

Although there is no gaming, there are a number of authors reading their works and panels on different literary themes. Also, the dealers room is great and has a large variety of books, magazines, films and artwork. I have been there for the last two years and have had a great time. It is a lot smaller than Gen Con and Origins but like many small local cons, it has an atmosphere all its own. If you are looking for a literary themed/collection convention, this is a good one.

Besides if anyone shows up, I am looking for people to game with that week-end, too. There are plans to have a gaming track in 2015 which would involve both board games and RPGs.
