Received my copy today - #19 of 200! To quote my son Vincent '"Wow! Thats cool looking! It's awesome!" - I agree with Vincent! Great looking book - a real must have! If you haven't ordered one - get yours today - don't wait!
Quick review - the font and size is perfect. Not as small as the Del Rey editions and large enough without being obtrusive. Great quote by Chris Gruber on the inside of the dust jacket which is great looking and informative (list of works, even upcoming books and a REH bio and bios on Gruber and Mark Finn). Well done REHFP!
I hope your dad enjoyed that collection. I thought it contained a good sampling of Howard's boxing fiction and serves well as a "Best of" book. Along with Paul Herman's Waterfront Fists and Others (w/ Mark Finn intro), Boxing Stories paved the way for the REH boxing revolution!
Ordered Volume 1! I agree with Mark on giving other people these boxing stories to try out REH. My dad wasn't so interested in Conan but he read Chris Gruber's Boxing Stories (picked up at REH Days 2006). I'm actually more of a boxing fan now then when I was younger and I'm really looking forward to this volume.
He sure did Chris - thanks! I am going to show him this new collection and see what he thinks. Maybe order him one or let him read mine.
