"The Taxol Thief" on the air!

Bold Venture Press grabs headlines whenever and wherever it can ... often it grabs airwaves, also!

Bold Venture is rolling out The Taxol Thief, a harrowing narrative of one man's attempt to rescue his wife from cancer. For three decades, the FDA denied approval of a first-in-class drug, "taxol," condemning thousands of breast-cancer victims to certain death. The Taxol Thief is the story of one couple's attempt to evade that fate by smuggling taxol from China through Russia.

February is National Cancer Prevention Month, and editor Audrey Parente was searching for venues to make people aware of The Taxol Thief. That's where Jonathan "JDOGG" Lederman comes in ...

Jonathan JDOGG Lederman, The Positive Broadcaster, has been inspiring and empowering audiences for over 40 years. His message of service to humanity being the best work of life resonates with all ages and all nationalities. JDOGG interviewed author Ceylon Barclay on February 13th on his Get Motivated With JDOGG program. It's a terrific interview about the novel, and about cancer awareness in general.

Listen to his radio interview with Ceylon here:

JDOGG has been actively involved in the communities where he has lived, worked, and played. JDOGG has won numerous awards for community service including a Governor's Point Of Light Award, The WRMF Hometown Hero Award, The American Cancer Society Hope Award, The U.S. Jaycees John H. Armbruster Memorial Award, and The Monford Johnson Community Service Award. JDOGG is very active with The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and has raised over $40,000 in the  last 17 years. 2017 Marks his 18th year of involvement with Relay For Life and he has raised $874 so far.

The Spider awards bonus books to attendees

A few weeks ago, we announced Timely/Marvel artist Allen Bellman will be a guest at the Florida edition of Pulp Adventurecon on February 11, 2017. Now here's some more pertinent information ...

The first 50 paying attendees -- on February 11, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale -- will receive their choice of a bonus book, The Spider #5: Empire of Doom, The Spider #7: Serpent of Destruction or The Spider #8: The Mad Horde. Bold Venture Press published these editions over a decade ago, and they remain highly prized collectibles!

The Spider was created in the early 1930s, in the wake of The Shadow's success. Early in the run, Norvell Page (under the house name Grant Stockbridge) gave The Spider's adventures a unique hysterical quality. In many respects, he was the Lethal Weapon of the 1930s.

For newcomers to the world of pulp fiction, this is a great introduction to one of the classic pulp super-heroes. The supplies are limited, so get to the show early!

Be certain to put Pulp Adventurecon on your must-attend list. Dealer tables packed with quality merchandise, much of it pulp magazines, Golden Age comic books and original artwork. You'll also find vintage paperbacks, mens adventure pulps, and quality reprints from various publishers.

Admission is a miserly $5.00 per person. Vendor tables are $45.00 each. Keep checking our website for updates, and for information on our upcoming November show in Bordentown, NJ.

P. L. McCall is in for a Penny And Dime!

We are pleased to add another name to our roster of guests!

Allen Bellman, artist for Timely/Marvel, will regale people with anecdotes of the Golden Age of Comics. He worked on Timely's golden age superstars -- Captain America, The Human Torch and The Sub-Mariner -- and dozens of other popular comics.

Mr. Bellman represents the Golden Age of Pulps and Comics ... Now, we're joined by P. L. McCall, who represents the modern era of pulp fiction.

P. L. McCall joins Pulp Adventurecon as a guest for the February 11 show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. PLMII Studios publishes an ongoing Fantasy Anthology Penny and Dime which publishes new INDIE Authors. P. L. is doing his darndest to perpetuate and forward the cause of pulp fiction!

P. L. is a Writer and the Owner of PLMII Studios, a multimedia company located in South Florida. He is the creator of The Grace Flynn Chronicles and Ing the Viking.

In the first installment of the Grace Flynn series, Grace Flynn is a prisoner of both England and France, awaiting her execution for a very long list of crimes. She is considered a danger to society and even the Holy See has proclaimed her an evil most foul. Her execution is delayed when the mysterious Dr. Daedalus arrives with an unorthodox offer of freedom. Her redemption will be found through a journey skirting the bowels of Hell itself.

P. L. McCall II attends multimedia conventions and shares his knowledge of creative writing and publishing with attendees through panels and the personal mentoring of new writers.

    The Big Show for 2016

    Pulp Adventurecon
    November 5, 2016
    Ramada Inn -- Bordentown, NJ

    After sixteen years, we're adding a blog feature to the Pulp Adventurecon page, in the hopes of keeping folks updated on each show. Okay ... we're a little behind the times ... We are, after all, collectors of magazines that were published before our birth. Alas, nearly all of these magazines were cancelled before we were born.

    Pulp Adventurecon makes its return to the Bordentown Ramada Inn on November 5th, 2016. Visitors will find tons of pulp magazines, along with Golden Age comic books, Big Little Books, vintage paperbacks, movie collectibles, obscure and classic movies on DVD, and other related material. You'll find more pulp magazines in this room than anywhere else on the East Coast.

    The show in conveniently located right off Exit 7 of the NJ Turnpike

    With seven weeks remaining before the show, we're ramping up our promotional efforts. This humble blog is one more tool in the show's utility belt. Keep checking the site for the last Pulp Hurrah of the year before family holidays demand our attention.

    For more information, watch this page (and the other pages), and join our mailing list by using the link below. While you're signing up, you might even click the link for Bold Venture Press and take a gander at our pulp reprints and new, pulp-inspired fiction by authors like Richard A. Lupoff, Gary Lovisi, John Wooley, and others.
