very cool though I have only found the one kull omnibus which has all the robert e howard stories in it. not that I am complaining at all I was just wondering was he not popular enough to expand except in comics by both marvel and dark horse?

you worked for tor mr.cox why did'nt you contribute to any of the stories in this run? I love you're books.

Believe it or not, I've never actually written anything for Tor, which is clearly sheer sloth on my part. Not counting endless reams of cover copy, of course. One of these days . . . .

Tor's CONAN books were edited at various points by Jim Rigney, Harriet McDougall, and Pat LoBrutto. I never edited any of them myself, but I did have fun commissioning some of the covers back in the old days and handled some of the boring, contractual stuff. Ken Kelly and Julie Bell did most of the covers back then.

I also edited the novelization of KULL THE CONQUEROR.

(Kull was basically REH's first draft of Conan. He never quite caught on the way Conan did . . . .)
