Less is More

Obtuse terms like "less is more" occasionally trouble my mind, but this weekend, so far, feels like it fits the term. PulpCon has always been an intense event for us... to the point of creating frazzled nerves and a slight feeling of relief when it was over. The past few years we haven't had the numerous offerings that we had through the '80s and '90s, but it was still something of a pressure-cooker weekend. This year we've got fewer actual Pulps than ever, but there are plenty of near-pulp and pulp-related items available. In short, the lighter load has been a blessing in a more relaxed in-store atmosphere and a friendlier rapport with our PulpCon visitors. I look forward to doing it again. Less is more... less stress is a more favorable environment for everyone. Enjoy the remainder of PulpCon 36.
