Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo thoughts..

By Shawn Scott Smith| April 28, 2008 | Comments Off on Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo thoughts..

So friday I made the drive up to Chicago for the Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo. The morning started with some hesitation about going since the roads were flooding here, but then the skies broke and I made the drive. Got to Chicago right as the convention was starting and realized pretty quickly I wouldnt be there for too long. The show has a nice size dealers room selling lots of pulp related merchandise as well as a really nice film room showing classic movies and serials featuring pulp characthers. Its really a great con for the pulp collector. Later that night there was going to be a panel as well. I think this is the only thing this con could do to increase their audience. Add a third room with panel programming throughout the day so that once you are done shopping the dealers room or dont like whats in the film room you have another option for fun.
The con was very nice. My ride home was not. But that has nothing to do with Windy City Pulp and Paper Expo which i recommend to any readers of pulp fiction.
