Well, it didn’t take them long to get the recordings of the PulpFest panels on the Cthulhu Mythos and Editing Weird Tales up and about the net. I was barely unpacked from the trip and there they were, ready for listening for anyone interested.

Each ought to run about 50 minutes, and each could have gone on for hours — I kept thinking of stuff I might have said, had the panels not bounced in other directions.

You can tell the discussions are by no means exhausted as the time runs out. I think Haefele in particular was just getting warmed up. That guy can talk.

Oh, and the first speaker heard on the Weird Tales tape is PulpFest stalward Mike Chomko, announcing a prize giveaway with a trivia question which I gave him off the cuff about what WT editor Farnsworth Wright did during the war — that would be The Great War or First World War.
