Reading the Classics: Review of Robert E. Howard's "Conan the Barbarian"
"As for my own fantasy writing, whether or not I do any future work in that field depends a good deal on the editors themselves. I would hate to abandon weird writing entirely, but my financial needs are urgent, immediate and imperious. Slowness of payment in the fantastic field forces me into other lines against my will."
|One of my favourite Frazetta pieces.|
If you have not read Conan the Barbarian or any of Howard's fantasy stories, I highly recommend them. Everyone has heard of the legendary Hyborian hero and his adventures, and even though there are tolerable attempts at continuing Howard's work, the original pieces are absolutely unparalleled.
