Prepared by renowned Howard scholar Paul Herman with the assistance of Glenn Lord, this is the first new bibliography of Robert E. Howard since 1976. This massive volume contains more than twice as much information as the preceding biblio, The Last Celt. Robert E. Howard is considered the Godfather of Sword and Sorcery, and the creator of the international icon, Conan the Cimmerian, yet wrote successfully in numerous genres. The Neverending Hunt lists every story, poem, letter and publication in which a Howard work has appeared. It's more than you might think . . .

This book is outstanding! Paul Herman did a great job and is on the quest of his life that started 20 years ago when he was faced with finding out what REH had written and where it had been published. Tens of thousands of randomly mixed up pages of REH were sent in 1944 to Ed Price in California. He would read them and pass them around to his friends, but never sorted them out. It would be wonderful if these pages turned up and got to Paul Herman to add to his Never Ending Hunt. This volume is split into two main sections: The Works and The Publications. The intro was awesome! I enjoyed each and every page of this book and was pleasantly surprised with the "Best Of" lists by various REH scholars:
