Re-upping Mr. Fabian's thread...
IMO (disregarding all the incredible work he's done illustrating the prose of Merritt, Vance and others), Stephen Fabian is quite possibly the greatest "Howardian" artist out there. Don't get me wrong. My favorite fantasy artist WILL ALWAYS BE FRANK FRAZETTA.
That said, Fabian has done illos for EVERY "major" Robert E. Howard character and quite a few "minor" ones (though I'd disagree that Eithriall the Gaul or Donn Othna are "minor").
Stephen Fabian is a major talent. I'm very glad I got to tell him that at the 2006 World Fantasy Convention.
This is from the "Raum" book, but just as easily an Aquilonian or Nemedian lancer.
I have had this book on my shelf for several years, and finally opened it up the other day for the first time; surprise! Despite the really unimpressive cover art, the interior art is excellent. I hope the story is as good as the art. Anyone read this one yet?
