    ROBERT E. HOWARD = THE BEST OF THE BEST EVER!

    A win/win with a great editor in Paul Herman and REH! Also an excellent introduction by Joe Lansdale! Here's one paragraph, "Read these stories and enjoy. Dip into the exciting horrors and adventures of Robert E. Howard. Do not come to them with an academic mind. Come to them with an eager heart. That way they will give you much. Because they know little of logic, and much of desire - and desire drives us. Howard knew that. Let him share this knowledge with you." Two of the scariest stories are here: The Thing of the Roof and The Horror from the Mound. Be sure to read with the lights on. These books by Fantasy are some of my favorites as they are larger than paperback, easy to open and turn pages, good size fonts, good color fonts on good paper stock. Recommended reading: Blood & Thunder, The Life & Art of REH by Mark Finn, The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Story, and all Weird Works by Paul Herman, Collected Letters Vols 1-3 and Poetry of REH by Rob Roehm, The Dark Barbarian and The Barbaric Triumph by Don Herron, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyn Price, Two-Gun Bob, The Last of the Trail, The Best of REH Vols 1-2, Horror Stories of REH, Dark Horse comics Kull, Bran Mak Morn, Solomon Kane, and Conan, Conan by Roy Thomas, Conan the Phenom, and Sword Woman and She Devil.

    WEIRD WORKS OF ROBERT E. HOWARD - VOL TWO = OUTSTANDING!!

    Anytime you see Paul Herman's name on a REH book it's a win/win! All of these Weird Works of REH are great reading! On the back cover of the book; Quote "People of the Dark is the second volume of The Weird Works of REH, presenting many of Howard's works from the pulp magazines like Weird Tales, meticulously restored to its original texts. This volume begins with "People of the Dark," featuring a prototypical Conan of the Reavers, and concludes with "The People of the Black Circle," one of the very best Conan the Cimmerian tales. This volume includes five Conan stories, as well as tales featuring other barbaric heroes, as only REH can present them." Unquote. All of REH stories stand the test of time as the very best ever! I like these paperback books a lot from Cosmos, Del Rey, etc. as they are easy to carry, on really good paper, and the fonts are good size and easy to read. The cover art by Ken Kelly and cover design by Garry Nurrish is awesome! Highly recommend One Who Walked Alone by Novalyn Price who was REH's girlfriend. There's a DVD called The Whole Wide World about REH and Novalyn starring Renne Zellweger and Vincent D'Onofrio as REH. Also must haves: The Last of the Trunk, Collected Letters of REH by Rob Roehm, and The Star Rover by Jack London one of REH's favorite authors. The Star Rover is about Darrell Standing a man in prison who doesn't break under pressure even in a straight jacket, no food, no water, beaten, for days and weeks.
