    Robert Howard Forum

    Especially since the British published a lot of titles for Conan Conan Roleplaying Game and since there are plenty of stories by Robert Howard as well as over 40 - 50 misc Conan titles.

    Heroes in the Wind: Howard in Penguin Modern Classics

    Well, it was quite a pleasant surprise when Lovecraft was published in the Penguin Modern Classics series, but -- given the type of stories he wrote -- I can't help but wonder if anyone really ever expected to see REH published there. Nonetheless, it has indeed happened: Heroes in the Wind...

Almost eighty years ago, he walked onto the pages of Weird Tales magazine and undertook many adventures in the Hyborian Age, ten thousand or more years ago when the world looked very different.

    Howard's Other Works

    Well, occasionally there is mention of Robert E. Howard around here, especially the Conan stories. However, I'm wondering who has read his other work, whether it be the stories of Bran Mak Morn, Kull, Solomon Kane, Turlogh Dubh O'Brien, James Allison, Agnes d'Chastillon, or any of his other...
