Howard the Texan connected to semi-mythic history and the existential journey of one determined man through all the dangers of men and beasts. He is the father of an American sword and sorcery, a juxtaposition of power that seems illogical but also somehow inevitable, almost an allegory of the wars of the 20th Century -- what you cannot see may kill you from afar, and what you can see may kill you up close. The survivor must be ready and skilled and wary at all times.
The legacies of these two writers last and grow to this day in literature, art, and film, even language. We stock their writings and associated contemporary writers as well as some of the more interesting and provocative writers working with the generous heritage that Lovecraft and Howard bequeathed to an increasingly uneasy world.
In a meteoric career that spanned a mere twelve years, Robert E. Howard single-handedly invented the genre that came to be called sword and sorcery. Much more than simply the prototype for Conan, Kull is a fascinating character in his own right: an exile from fabled Atlantis who wins the crown of Valusia, only to find it as much a burden as a prize. The stories are presented just as Howard wrote them, with all subsequent editorial emendations removed.
Also included are previously unpublished stories, drafts, and fragments, plus extensive notes on the texts, an introduction by Howard authority Steve Tompkins, and an essay by noted editor Patrice Louinet.

But modern writers Howard does tend to ruin one for less hard driven yet poetic writers not surprisingly a rare combination. If you haven't yet, you will probably want to try Seabury Quinn and Max Brand. The latter is typed as a "classic Western" writer, but his stories more often focus on the inner struggles of the protagonist than just on gun battles.
Beyond the Outposts is a great example. Let me know what you think.
Kull (Exile of Atlantis)
I shall certainly try the two authors you mentioned, as I am not familiar with their works. Since I'm here, I'll offer some recommendations of my own. I don't know if you're familiar with the Warhammer universe both the SF outlet titled "40 ", and the "Fantasy" outlet , but the WHF series has some of the most talented writers of today penning the novels. One is Dan Abnett, who writes mostly in the 40K segment, but has a collaboration with another writer Mike Lee on the series called "Malus Darkblade".
Malus is a wonderful read, I suggest to click on the 'look inside' link and read the first page or two. Though they may seem like some dime-a-dozen, random and generic fantasy novels, they are all really of excellent quality. All three of the mentioned authors particularly C. Werner have cited classic pulp fiction as their biggest inspiration, specifically mentioning REH. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm always on the lookout for heroic fantasy tales, and as you said, it's hard to tell the good from the dime-a-dozen.
I'm sure you'll enjoy them, if you decide to try them out.

Yesterday, I also read one of the Seabury Quinn yarns that are in public domain - "Pledged to the Dead". I don't know how it compares to his other work, but whatever the case, I liked it a lot, despite it being essentially a love story. So I will be picking up a collection of Quinn's stories pretty soon. Post a Comment. Somebody Dies. Howard Joe R. Wraiths and Worlds by Darrin Charles Wilson dark Guest Blogger: Stephen D.
