With 2018 arriving tomorrow, we’re just over three months away from the 18th annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 6-8, 2018 at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL).  We’d previously announced that we’d sold out all 155 tables in our dealer room in record time.  We’re now very pleased to announce that NYT bestselling author F. Paul Wilson will be our Guest of Honor at our 2018 con!

Wilson is the author of over 50 books, many of which feature his popular anti-hero, Repairman Jack.  Among his numerous awards are the Bram Stoker Award, the Prometheus Award, the Porgie Award and the Inkpot Award.  His first published story, “The Cleaning Machine,” appeared in the March 1971 issue of Startling Mystery Stories, while his second appeared a month later, in the April 1971 issue of the John Campbell edited Analog.  His newest novel, “The God Gene,” is scheduled to be released by Forge Books on January 2, 2018.  Wilson contributed the Foreword to The Art of the Pulps, published in October 2017, where he shared that “I love the pulps. … I’ve been a fan of the pulps since my teens…”  We’re excited to have him as our GoH, and we know that our attendees will enjoy meeting him at the convention!
