Now available to order, The Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard, Volume 1, the first of three planned volumes. This the collectable hardback. Due soon is a more affordable and perpetually in-print paperback edition with new cover-art.

While you’re waiting for a mighty-thewed delivery-man proffering your Vol. 1, this week DMR has a long consideration of the ‘decadent’ and ‘gothic’ traces to be seen in Howard’s “Spear and Fang”.
