Conan Meets The Academy from the Author: Jonas Prida. Robert E. Howard penned a series of fantasy stories in 1932 featuring Conan, a hulking warrior from “Cimmeria” who roamed the mythical Hyborian Age landscape engaging in heroic adventures. More than the quirky manifestation of Depression-era magazines, Conan the Barbarian has endured as a cultural mainstay for over 70 years. This multidisciplinary collection offers the first scholarly investigation of Conan, from Howard’s early stories, through midcentury novels and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic films, to the 2011 cinematic remake of Conan the Barbarian. Drawing on disciplines such as stylometry, archeology, cultural and folklore studies and literary history, the essays examine statistical analyses of the words in Conan texts, the literary genesis of Conan, later-day parodies, Conan video games, and much more. This volume reveals the hidden scholarly depth of this seemingly unsophisticated fictional character.

Robert E Howard from the Author: Leon Nielsen. Robert E. Howard published primarily in pulp magazines, creating memorable characters like Conan of Cimmeria. After his suicide at the age of 30, pulps continued publishing Howard material posthumously. His first hardcover book appeared in 1937, a year after his death. That book, A Gent from Bear Creek, is the holy grail for Howard collectors--only 12 original copies are known to exist. This invaluable resource for Howard collectors has information for every known published work. Initial chapters provide a biography, discuss Howard's literary legacy, and give basic tips about book collecting and selling. The main body of the work is a bibliography of Howard's published works from 1925 through 2005. A thorough index locates the publication of every Howard story or poem.

The Neverending Hunt lists every story, poem, letter and publication in which a Howard work has appeared. It's more than you might think . . .

Bestiary Of The Hyborian Age from the Author: Bryan Steele. Tales of dripping fangs and ripping claws echo out from around flickering campfires, drawing travellers close together to avoid the beasts that wait just beyond the dim light. Alleyways hide assassins that want more than coin from their victims, and sometimes the movement in the shadows are the shadows themselves. Hyboria is a dangerous place filled with deadly beasts and hungering predators - any of which could spell the epilogue in an adventurer's epic tale at any time. For the first time in the history of the Conan Roleplaying Game all of the creatures, animals, demons and beasts of Hyboria are gathered between two covers. Some will look very familiar, like the Ape Men or the Zombie, but new creatures like the Dark Spawn and the Pictish Hound will give Games Masters a whole new arsenal as well. Compiled together for Games Masters everywhere to unleash upon their players, the Hyborian Bestiary gives over a hundred statistic profiles and plot hooks for the denizens of Conan's world.
