Several years ago, at Pulpcon 35, held in Dayton, Ohio in 2006, I was asked to participate in a panel discussion on the boom of pulp reprints appearing on the market. The emcee for the evening's discussion was El Hulse, editor of Bloon'n'Thunder. Others on the panel were John Gunnison (Adventure House), Rich Harvey (Bold Venture Press) and Neil Mechem (Girasol Collectibles). An audio file (running 56 m.) is available of the panel discussion here for your listening pleasure.
