PulpFest 2009 replaced PulpCon last year and was an amazing success.  One of the organizers, Howard bookseller Mike Chomko has an update on this year’s event, which will be held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Columbus, Ohio from July 30 through August 1. Here is Mike’s update:

PulpFest 2010 is proud to announce that award-winning author, editor,  screenwriter, and biographer William F. Nolan will be the Guest of Honor at this year’s convention.

Nolan, an authority on Max Brand, Dashiell Hammett, and Black Mask magazine will help PulpFest to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Brand’s first appearance in Western Story Magazine as well as the first issue of Black Mask.

An accomplished fictioneer in his own right, having written numerous works in the fantasy, horror, and science-fiction genres, Nolan is perhaps best known as the co-author of LOGAN’S RUN and author of its sequels. He’s also a
multiple award-winner, including the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Stoker Award from the Horror Writers Association.

For further details on this exciting development, please visit the PulpFest 2010 website to read the full post. For more on Mr. Nolan, please click the “guest of honor” link within the post or look for the topic under the “programming” category.
