    Pulpcon is short for pulp convention. Is there any money in it? Not really, but there is some tradition involved. The first Pulpcon was held in, I think, 1970. So it has been around a pretty long time. However, of late, it has been lacking a lot of its old spirit. That's why my partners and I decided to split with the people who had been managing that convention and start our own Pulp Con.

    Thanks for your interest.
