Re: Robert E. Howard and Materialism

Thanks for posting, Ancient History. This quote alone convinced me to purchase a copy of Howard's horror stories. Can't wait to dig in.

Night has fallen. He has died now.
A fly crawls over the still flesh.
Of what use is it to me that this man has suffered,
If I am suffering now?
- Borges

Re: Robert E. Howard and Materialism

This thread has inspired me to have a Solomon Kane reread. Just finished Red Shadows. Howard's artistry is all there fully formed.

Re: Robert E. Howard and Materialism

Penguin Classics published a Howard collection called Heroes in the Wind a few years back. Not sure how much respect that got him.

Does it include 'Pigeons from Hell'?

Re: Robert E. Howard and Materialism

Wordsworth also has some Howard titles in their Tales of Mystery and the Supernatural line. Never quite sure if that was separate line to their Classics or a subset.

Definitely a subset. It's a shame that line wasn't successful enough to continue but it's not surprising that a lot of it didn't have a wide appeal.

Also Patrice Louinet, who is doing his dissertation on Howard at the Sorbonne.
