Douglas Ellis

Douglas Ellis has been collecting pulps, as well as pulp, science fiction and fantasy art, for decades. He co-founded and co-organizes the Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention, whose art show has displayed thousands of vintage illustrations. For many years his Tattered Pages Press published the acclaimed pulp fanzine Pulp Vault, as well as other books on the pulps, including several by World Fantasy Award winner Hugh B. Cave.  He was one of the authors of The Adventure House Guide to Pulps, and has edited several pulp anthologies, including the acclaimed Best of Adventure series. His book, Uncovered: The Hidden Art Of The Girlie Pulps, an in-depth study of the spicy pulps and their art, was named ForeWord Magazine’s 2003 Popular Culture Book of the Year.  In 1996 he received the Lamont Award for his contributions to pulp fandom.  For the Comic & Fantasy Art Amateur Press Association, he produced Virgil Finlay: The Art of Things to Come, a very limited print run book reproducing much of Finlay’s art from the Science Fiction Book Club’s “Things to Come” bulletin.  Most recently he produced, with Robert Weinberg and Robert Garcia, The Collectors’ Book of Virgil Finlay, which is making its debut at this year’s convention.
