Robert E. Howard: Twentieth-Century Mythmaker

Robert E. Howard: Twentieth-Century Mythmaker. A Short Biography of Robert E. Howard. Notes on the Original Howard Texts. Robert E. Howard’s deeply held philosophy of absolute, rugged individualism was the obvious common thread. No matter the genre, Howard wrote of individuals standing tall against the forces that would oppose them–seen and unseen, natural or otherwise–preferring to be crushed into the ground and flattened rather than to give so much as an inch. The Dark Man is one of three tales in this volume that feature Bran Mak Morn, though in this one he is a distant historical memory, living on only as a lifeless statue–or is it lifeless?

Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres.

Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre. Howard was born and raised in Texas. He spent most of his life in the town of Cross Plains, with some time spent in nearby Brownwood.

Introduction by joe r. lansdale. Howard-the texas phoenix flames in darkness. It’s easy for me to relate to Robert E. At least in many ways. Because I too grew up in a small Texas town, East instead of West, and in that respect, less bleak, but still, a small town. A town populated by good, solid people, but a small corner of the earth cursed with a kind of raw wound of ignorance, a black hole void of the possibilities of a bigger universe. Weird Tales, November 1930. His iron legions came.

Howard and Weird Tales would remain closely associated for the next dozen years, until the author took his own life at the age of thirty. During that period, forty-eight stories and twenty-one poems by Robert E. Howard appeared in the magazine, and he became one of its most popular writers, along with Lovecraft and Seabury Quinn. His fame rests largely on the fantasy adventures of Conan, Kull, Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and Turlogh O’Brien, stories in which he created a new subgenre that has come to be known as sword and sorcery, blending together elements of heroic adventure and horror.

  • Dagdarad
If you like old school sword and board fantasy this is the man you credit. Yes, he invented Conan, but he also had other heroes from other continuities, and some of those stories are presented here. Also included are some Lovecraft style ancient gods type stories that combine the pulpyness of Howard's normal style with Lovecraft. Worth a purchase.
  • Gathris
This third volume in the series comes with beautiful cover art by Stephen Fabian and nine superb short stories (plus two poems) by the master of heroic fantasy. Every tale in the book is a great read, several of these being Lovecraft inspired, and there are fascinating characters: Cormac of Connacht, Solomon Kane, Black Turlogh, and Athelstane. I highly recommend it, and expect this series to only get better.

More Cthulhu work, and a Bran Mak Morn/Kull crossover, and one Solomon Kane story.

A Cthulhoid type venture. Not somewhere you want to be. Fairly proficiently done.

3.5 out of 5

Anthropological arguments and reminiscences over Cthulhu cults.

3 out of 5

Turlogh Dubh O'Brien gets some inspiration from Bran Mak Morn in beach side battle.

3.5 out of 5

Kane is following a band of slavers, and is unable to help himself when he sees them stop and start to whip a girl to death. Despatching many, he is overcome by the dozens of others, and forced to march as a slave.

A nasty supernatural end awaits his captors, where his possession of the Bast-headed staff of N'Longa in the past is no bad thing.

3.5 out of 5

Swords in the storm, serpent ships, swimming with sharks, and a sheila scheming with religion.

3.5 out of 5

If an old priest tells you that the body in the tomb is an undead Spanish nobleman, and you happen to be a credulous cowboy, next time, believe him!

3.5 out of 5

Bran Mak Morn has leadership problems. Wulfhere's Northerners will not follow him, or Cormac, prince of Erin, they demand a King. Consulting with Gonar, who talks to his ancestor in Kull's time, and summons Kull, King of Valusia! Kull likes Bran, as he reminds him of Brule, and agrees to lead the Northerners. Wulfhere challenges him to combat. Big mistake for Wulfhere.

With Kull's help, Bran manages to hold the Romans for now, at some significant cost.

4 out of 5

"I came to Dagon's Cave to kill Richard Brent." 10 out of 10 for courage, minus several million for common sense. Luckily, there is a bit of reincarnated presence ancient barbarian named Conan and other action here so not everybody dies.

4 out of 5

A book collector acquires a copy of Nameless Cults. It motivates the man he got it for to go back to th temple of the Toad God.

The amulet he acquires there has very unfortunate consequences.

Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) was and is still the best story teller wordsmith of action, adventure, horror, and more of all time! The Weird Works is some of REH's best stuff! My favorite in this book is Queen of the Black Coast that has Belit who is Conan's true love. Belit is the first woman Conan stayed faithful with up until her ____. The poem To A Woman ("Though fathoms...") Moder American Poetry Galleon Press, 1933 is really creepy. Just the way I like um! REH was a genius. Must reads of his:
The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Hunt, all Weird Works by Paul Herman, Blood & Thunder by Mark Finn, Selected Letters Vol 1-3 and Poetry by Rob Roehm, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Ellis REH's girlfriend, The Black Stranger, Lord Samarcand, Dark Horse comics Solomon Kane, Kull, All Conans, Bran Mak Morn, Cormac Mac Art, Two Gun Bob and all REH stories. My favorite is The Beast from the Abyss about cats. You can find this on REH websites. It's a real treat. Tell others about REH and keep visiting your local bookstores. I found some really inexpensive and out of print books of REH at some local Used Book Stores. MUST READ - Two Gun Bob! Superb insight into REH's mind and stories. Neat factoid, REH had only visit the sea shore once in his life! Get Two Gun Bob before it's gone! Check out the REH Foundation and Forum!

This collection of stories by the illustrious author of Conan and Brak Mak Morn, Solomon Kane, and legendary others, takes readers into the golden age of sword & sorcery that was written better back in the day.

Written grammatically correct in Old English that past authors like Edgar Rice Buroughs and Howard made this a refreshing reading experience that takes one back to yesteryear of high end adventure fantasy.

A must read for Conan fans.
