Windy City Pulp & Paper Convention

A three-day convention held in Chicago focusing on the pulps: magazines, paperbacks, original art, movie memorabilia, old time radio, science fiction, and popular culture. It is not limited to SF, but SF does seems to play a leading role. It is organized by Doug Ellis and Deb Fulton. It is basically a very large huckster room, an art exhibit (which is often extraordinary), a series of very large auctions, some movies, and a very small program. It does not normally have a GoH, but it is themed each year. (IA) Website
