Fantastic Pulps Show & Sale

May 13th 2017

Toronto, ON M5T 1R5

A small but terrific show featuring a variety of pulp and pulp related items. 25 dealers’ tables crammed with vintage pulp, pulp reprints, vintage paperbacks and posters as well as other ephemera. Plus a half-hour pulp magazine cover slide show. A great time for both serious pulp collectors as well as the casually interested. Lots of great stuff to see!
