In Topic: Centipede Press - Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser (8 hardcovers)

That does sound awesome, and expensive.
 
Man, I keep thinking of all the great S&S stuff out that really needs the "Del Rey Conan" treatment, by which I mean good collections in comprehensive, quailty paperback format... Fafhrd and Grey Mouser of course, but also Thongor, KEW's Kane, etc., etc...

Preach it, brother!

I have The Great Captains and The Savage Warriors on my shelf. I skimmed the second one just a little, and my initial impression was that the writing was dense and richly descriptive. The sort of book you need to read carefully, in small, savoury chunks. If you cram this down your gullet like popcorn, I think one might miss much of what Treece is saying here...
I think I need to be in the right frame of mind to get into these books.

I really, really want these books! I already have the Warner paperbacks, and ebook versions on my Kindle. There is no sound reason to spend $300 on books I already own. But, they are so frigging cool...

Beautiful books. Nice to see Wagner getting the first class treatment. I just snagged a pair of like new condition paperbacks of the Kane stories from a garage sale. Actually it was the motherload of paperback fantasy books of which Kane was included. I'm going to have to sort through them and detail the haul.
Let us know what you find! Love sorting through a pile of new old paperbacks...

In Topic: The Legend of Conan - Arnold Schwarzenegger Back as Conan

Hmm...Druss and Conan are very different from each other. I really like Gemmell's Legend, but mixing the two might ruin both. I would much rather see a full-blown Legend movie, or an actual Howard-based Conan...
