Book Haul/Spotlight – Robert E. Howard’s Conan of Cimmeria: A Sketchbook by Mark Schultz




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:
