For the fourth consecutive year, the Pulp Factory Awards were presented at this year’s Windy City Pulp & Paper Convention.
These awards are given to the best in new pulp fiction and art published during the previous year as voted on by the 111 members of the Pulp Factory; an internet group made up of pulp writers, artists, editors, publishers and dedicated fans.
Writer William Patrick Maynard and artist Rob Davis once again co-hosted the award presentations, handing out the sculptured trophies done in the shape of a quill pen set against factory-like gears.
The pen represents both writers and artists, the gears paying homage to the assembly-line production of the old pulps of the 1930s.
This year’s winners for the best in fiction and art for 2012 were:
THE LONE RANGER – VENDETTA by the late Howard Hopkins, published by Moonstone Books.
"The Ghoul" by Ron Fortier from the anthology, “Monster Aces,” published by Pro Se Productions.
Joe Devito for THE INFERNAL BUDDHA published Altus Press.
This year’s preliminary nominations and final ballot represented a total of twelve New Pulp Fiction publishers.
The Pulp Factory membership congratulates all the winners for their exceptional work.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
