Yep, got mine yesterday as well. Gorgeous books, really special. I think Tales Of Weird Menace must be one of the loveliest books ever, a truly remarkable combination of art and typography. I'd love to see more pulpish covers in that same vein on future Foundation Press books. Those garish colours really have that 1920s/1930s vibe that Weird Tales etc must have had. A cover like this one, well, I think it handsomely repesents some of the 'zing' of REHs colourful prose. Pity The Cimmerian blog isn't still going, I'd love to read their comments on these wonderful releases.

All that remains now is to pick the right time to chill-out, shut-out the world and read those REH stories, many of them for the first time, no less. Ah, truly something special, these two books! Bravo to everyone involved!

Just completed Tales Of Weird Menace by the way - I'll be honest, I like to let these books 'last' by taking them in slowly, savouring them- and I have to say its a fantastic collection. They may be considered some of Bob's lesser tales but I kind of enjoy the pulpish adventures set in those pine woods, fantastic escapism from our modern world. Loved 'em.

I recently read that the Steve Harrison fragment The Mystery of Tannernoe Lodge mentions the Orontes ruby, that in ancient times adorned the scepter of the Stygian wizard Rammon (also mentioned in The Phoenix on the Sword).
Is this reference to Rammon really included in the text? Or was it inserted by Fred Blosser who completed this tale?

I would highly appreciate if anyone possessing Steve Harrison's Casebook could check this out.

The words "Rammon" and "Orontes" do not appear anywhere in Steve Harrison's Casebook.

Thanks for your answer. A pity, it would have been an interesting connection to the Hyborian Age.

Finally got off my butt and ordered Steve Harrison's Casebook. It arrived yesterday. Well worth the purchase.

 

FYI; I received number 218 of 250. So, REHF are more than halfway through their stock. If you're considering it and on the fence, you might want to put in an order soonish.
