Book Haul/Spotlight – Finishing off my Del Rey Robert E. Howard collection PT. 1

 

 

 

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 I have been collecting many REH books. I had a hole in my collection, I was missing a few books in my Del Rey Robert E. Howard collection. I was finally able to acquire them. Looking forward to finishing this collection.

Today we have:

Grim Lands: The Best of Robert E. Howard Volume 2 TPB (2007)

and

El Borak and Other Desert Adventures TPB (2010)
