In Topic: Conan The Buccaneer Review

Yesterday, 03:57 AM

Just picked this one up a few days ago, a mint copy that looks un-read and for less than $3. I had this book a long time ago, but it went missing years ago. When I placed it in it's spot on my shelf of Ace Conan, it occurred to me that in a few years, these earlier pastiche novels will become much harder to find. With the recent deluge of unadulterated Howard material (a good thing!), the Carter/deCamp/Nyberg material of the 50's-80's will fade away and disappear, for the most part. I would not be adverse to a new omnibus collection of this older pastiche fiction to replace my aging collection. I kinda like some of it. And now that we all know the difference between the original and the copies, what's the harm?

I have Hiero's Journey on my shelf, but have not read it yet. Sounds neat, really should give it a go sooner rather than later...

Actually, Jason was bigger and more defined in 2011 than in his Netflix series Red Road. IMHO, that is...

Or Scott Oden, yeah he could rock a Howard pastiche! Man, that would be so cool...CPI, you listening?

That's right, Bux! The reason I like JMR's Conan, or Hocking's is because those guys respect the original, and it shows in their pastiche works. Would love to see Keith Taylor try a pastiche, something with Cormac Mac Art perhaps..,
