Lamont Award

Named after Lamont Cranston, the secret identity of the Shadow, this award was created by Pulpcon in 1977 to recognize a deserving person who has given of himself or herself for the betterment of the pulp community, be it through disseminating knowledge about the pulps or through publishing or other efforts to preserve and to foster interest in the pulp magazines we all love and enjoy. The award was discontinued in 2008 with the final Pulpcon, but the Munsey Award, presented at Pulpfest was created as a continuation of the spirit of the award.

The award was not presented between 1980 and 1982.
