Such a bizarre title change. Lazer cats!

Money and muscle, that's what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won't do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world won't enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it.
--Robert E. Howard to Harold Preece, ca. June 1928--

Now that was a series that I didn't think would be so "easy", so to speak. I haven't been actively collecting REH pulps for that many years, but those were particularly elusive. I think at one point Rob made the comment that he would have been happy to *see a scan* of their covers... Anyway, here they are, in über-nice condition (and the Dec ish in absolutely killer condition), with very nice off-white paper, all three of them in one fell swoop.
And if there's one REH character I don't like, it's bound to be a Allison, for whatever reason: I really don't care for the Sonora Kid and Kid Allison stories.. Go figure...

Cool pic. B) A lot of people don't realize just how THICK a lot of pulps were.

I don't have anything super collectible value, but I've been meaning to do this for a while.

First shelf, the Del Reys, One Who Walked Alone, and a Jordan omnibus.
Posted Image

Followed by Conan - REH & pastiches. Order is a bit wonky because I put the read ones behind the unread.
Posted Image

Posted Image

And a few in trade paperback format.

We take out the Conan paperbacks in front, to reveal the back. More than just Conan stuff;

Posted Image

More pastiche material leads the next shelf.

Finally, a couple of stragglers.

I have some of the Dark Horse reprint collections, Solomon Kane, Kull, Conan, though it is by no means complete (and not really worth another photo.)

This one is lower grade, but it's got decent paper---and it's signed by Frank Miller! :P


Posted Image


Not only does it have the first installment of Otis Adelbert Kline's sword-and-planet adventure Planet of Peril (with a cool sf cover), but also the REH boxing story "Crowd Horror." This was a big sale for REH at the time (1929), as Argosy was one the top high-end pulps.

PaulMc - You have some pretty collectible stuff. Novalyne's book is hard to get and the hardcover Red Nails is valuable along with those selected letters. You have a very nice collection.

May I add though - The REH Foundation books cost just a tad bit more but what you get is super, super, collectable and goes up in value each and every year! And the great news is that they are ALL Available EXCEPT Collected Poetry by REH. The REH Foundation books are limited in number usually 150, numbered, First Printings, and the most recent one by Mark Finn, Blood and Thunder, The Life and Art of REH he actually signed them!

Just get in contact with Rob.

Guess this could be a thread to show off your colection of Conan goodies. Here's most of what I have.

That isn't everything. Got a couple more of the McFarlan figures and a big stack of Savage Sword of Conan comics. And pretty soon I'm gonna be ordering the Conan swords.

Somebody should produce a "Barbie the Barbarian" figure. Just take a Barbie doll and strip her and dress her in furs and leather. :lol:
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

They did that back in the 70's. It's called Mego Conan. That hair---yikes!


Great collection Warduke!
