In Topic: Should I read pastiche?

YES! I would love to see more pastiche but with some of the other great characters Howard wrote about. I could really get into that; Paradox, are you listening?

Well said Boot! There is only one Howard! If you know that anything else is NOT gonna read like Howard's prose, but still want to read more adventures, dig in and enjoy! Also, I have to give a shout-out for Karl Edward Wagner's Bran Mak Morn pastiche Legion from the Shadows. Very, very good work.

Lots of folks crap all over pastiche writers, and call them hacks and even worse. But if I could have written a Conan pastiche and had it published, I would be over the moon! Most of these guys are pretty good writers (far better than most haters!) and deserve a little more respect than they get. That being said, the quality varies based on personal taste. I really like Hocking's book, and the ones by John Maddox Roberts-good fun! I still have to try some of the others before making a judgment call, but I think some of these books a worth reading for sure. Give em a chance!

The best movie I saw in 2014 was John Wick. Can't recommend it enough.


Missed this one in the theaters, can't wait for the Bluray release!
