I have been adding many new books to my collection recently. My interest in reading has shifted to older books and authors. So I thought instead of just a simple book haul post I would do more of a spotlight/introduction post as well. So in the post below you will not only find the usual book haul photo’s, but book and author info as well. I hope you will take the time to look it over and maybe take a chance at checking out books and authors that you may have forgot about or discover in these post!
I have always been a Robert E. Howard fan. The first time I read a Conan story I became hooked for life. Recently my local used bookstore has had some amazing REH books. I can only imagine a collector sold their collection. I have been scraping together everything I can to try and get some of these books. I am happy to give them a new home with another Robert E. Howard collector. I hope everyone will enjoy these post.
Today we have:
The Dark Barbarian – The Writings of Robert E. Howard: A Critical Anthology
by Don Herron
Greenwood Press (1984)
My updated Robert E. Howard and Conan collection.
Info from Howard Works.
A great resource!
Don Herron is best known for leading the Dashiell Hammett Tour in San Francisco since 1977. The last four decades have been marked by edition after edition of his tour book, as well as his biography WILLEFORD on the cult crime writer Charles Willeford, and the guidebook THE LITERARY WORLD OF SAN FRANCISCO AND ITS ENVIRONS.
Among other projects, he edited THE SELECTED LETTERS OF PHILIP K. DICK and the critical collection REIGN OF FEAR: THE FICTION AND FILM OF STEPHEN KING. His critical collections on Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan, are now available in the eBook “LitCrit MegaPack” THE DARK BARBARIAN THAT TOWERS OVER ALL.
To disambiguate this Don Herron from others, he is not the author of THE SARIM nor is he the Canadian comedian Don Harron from HEE HAW, who writes books under the name “Charlie Farquharson.”
