Hello all and Merry Christmas!
Since I would write a letter to Scott Allie, the Dark Horse Conan editor, can someone please help me remembering in which moments in Conan original literature, the barbarian showed gigantic melancholies?
So i will have material to discuss with.
Thank you very much!
I don't think there is one. REH wrote the intro that included that phrase just as he was wrapping up Kull and Black Turlogh, a couple moody guys. Somewhere between the first draft and the final draft of Phoenix on the Sword, REH took out the little lines about Conan being all depressed and feeling hopeless over something, and nothing like it really ever came back into the canon. Conan ever after was never to be defeated emotionally.
Well, till he was hanging on the cross. Even then, he just gave up, he didn't get all moody and teary-eyed about it.
