ERBfest 2021: August 19 - 21
Mars, Pennsylvania
Edgar Rice Burroughs Fest (ERBFest) 2021,
is working with the PulpFest organizers and ERB, Inc to coordinate activities.
It will be embedded in PulpFest with certain events in their programming aligned to ERBFest.
These are:

Thursday: Aug. 19 at 7:15
*** “The Amazing, Thrilling, and Fantastic Edgar Rice Burroughs” by Henry Franke is the opening presentation at PulpFest.  This will focus on ERB's years in Hawaii, during World War II, and post-war years

Three in a row on Friday:
* “Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Unfinished Tales -- Mars, Venus, Poloda, and Tarzan’s Africa” -- presentation on Friday, August 20, at 3:00 pm

* “Beyond the Farthest Star: A Classic Science Fiction Novel Restored” -- panel on Friday, August 20, at 3:35 pm (Cathy Wilbanks and Christopher Paul Carey as panelists, Henry Franke as moderator)
* “The News from Tarzana: Thrilling Updates from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.” -- panel on Friday, August 20, at 4:10 pm (Cathy Wilbanks and Christopher Paul Carey)

* “A Barsoomian Bull Session,” hosted by Henry Franke in the hotel lounge area on Saturday, August 21, beginning at 11:00 pm

PulpFest will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh–Cranberry in Mars, Pennsylvania.
The convention rate is $129 plus taxes per night, which includes a voucher for their hot breakfast buffet.
There are no additional charges for ERBFest events; all PulpFest attendees are invited to attend.
Details about registration and payments, plus the hotel, are at
(Also see "The Gridley Wave" #463 (April 2021).)

The Burroughs Bibliophiles will man their table in the dealers room throughout the convention (ERB, Inc. will have a table, as well).
Mark Wheatley will also be in the dealers room.
By the way, The Burroughs Bibliophiles has signed up more new members at PulpFest in past years than at any other convention.

ERBFest 2021 is a one-shot ERB fan celebration to fill the gap this year in our usual fan conventions, due to the absence of the ECOF Gathering.
The 2021 Dum-Dum, to be hosted by Gary Buckingham in Albuquerque, NM, will be an in-person event in November -- more details to follow.

What is ECOF?
English fan ~ Frank Shonfeld ~ established a loose network of pen pals
who shared his love for Burroughs, the man and his works.
He eventually named this group the
Edgar Rice Burroughs Chain of Friendship (ECOF).
