Gone fishing….

Posted in Conventions,Murania Press,PulpFest on August 8, 2012 @ 10:02 pm

  …fishing for old pulp magazines, that is. Once a collector, always a collector. I leave 6 a.m. tomorrow morning for Columbus, Ohio and the fourth annual PulpFest, about which you’ve read much here. If you’re within driving distance of Columbus there’s still time for you to join us, and a gala weekend it promises […]

About a month back, PulpFest 2012 was very proud to announce that at this year’s convention we’d be auctioning the substantial collection of longtime fan and scholar Al Tonik — pulps, paperbacks, hardcovers, dime novels, comic books, fanzines, and, particularly, reference books.
