>>{{image class="center" alt="The Pulpster 2010" url="images/wiki-images/thepulpster2013.jpg" }}**//The Pulpster//**
**Editor:** William Lampkin
**Publication range:** July 1991-Ongoing>>//The Pulpster// offers a range of articles devoted to the [[PulpMagazines pulps]], their writers, artists and characters, as well as profiles of the pulp convention's Guests of Honor and a "Final Chapters" column, listing those in the pulp community who have died in the past year.

[[DavisTony Tony Davis]] first proposed the idea of a convention zine at Pulpcon in 1990. //The Pulpster// debuted the following year. The first two issues of the zine were chapbook-size, with //The Pulpster// adopting an 8x10 size beginning with issue number 3 in 1993. Covers have been black-and-white illustrations, sometimes printed on colored stock. The 2010 issue (number 19) introduced //The Pulpster//'s first full-color cover, a reproduction of a //[[BlackMask Black Mask]]// cover painting by [[MurphyHCJr H.C. Murphy Jr.]] from September 1929.

Davis continued editing //The Pulpster// until number 21, published in 2012.

//The Pulpster// currently is edited by [[TpnEditor William Lampkin]] and is distributed at the annual [[PulpFest PulpFest]] pulp convention as part of the attendance fee. A limited number of copies are available to purchase following the convention, depending on the number remaining.
