Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

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?

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 . . . .)

^ True story: we were running out of adjectives after the first twenty-five or so titles, which is why we finally switched over to the "CONAN AND THE . . ." titles.
Don't be silly. There are lots of adjectives you could have used!

"Conan the Nice".
"Conan the Good."
"Conan the Happy".
"Conan the Bon Vivant".
"Conan the Pleasant".
"Conan the Effeminate".

Clearly a failure of imagination.

you're sick.

and it looks like the tor books are slowly going into e form 3 of the jordan books are aviable. I so would've like to have seen either george r r martin or david drake write a conan novel.

Do they still do the Conan books?! I'd have thought they finished up years ago...

Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

I could be wrong, but I don't think Tor is still doing new CONAN books, although I'm sure we'll keep selling the old ones, especially the ones by Robert Jordan, for as long as the contracts allow. (One of my big accomplishments several years ago was renewing our rights to the Jordan books for another chunk of years.)

I briefly chased after the novelization of RED SONJA, but that movie seems to be on hold now . . ..

If not that, is there any thought that someone might pick up from the Red Sonja series Ace books produced which David c Smith and Richard Tierney wrote? They came out around the time of the movie and were quite fun reads. I'd love for someone to take up another Sonja tale or two.

Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

I believe they are doing books set in "the age of conan" I have yet found a list for it. I;ll keep looking and put up here. I believe I've covered all the conan novel's todate except the age of conan. all so I'll up the red sonja novels and graphics as well.


off topic has any one here read a fantasy graphic series northlanders?

I suppose they might if the new movie's successful - unless the rights go to someone else.

I doubt that one will ever get made - though I admit the Brigitte Nielsen one is a guilty pleasure (pre-op BN is way hotter than post-op BN. She can't act, but at least reminds me of Leela from Dr Who...)

Probably. But Rose McGowan would have looked great on the book cover.

True confession: I actually made an offer for the novelization based on the movie poster alone . . . before they had even finished the script. I could see that cover selling books . . ..

Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

since mr.cox brought up red sonja I did some digging and here are the novels by
David C. Smith and Richard L. Tierney and covers are by Boris Vallejo.

ace publishing 1981 - 1983

1) The Ring of Ikribu
2) Demon Gate
3) When Hell Laughs
4) Endithor's Daughter
5) Against the prince of Hell
6) Star of Doom


now I never read or got into red sonja and the only warrior women I knew was xena warrior princess much later on.

It appears that Michael Stackpole is writing the novelization of the new Conan film. It comes out next week from Berkley.

The writings of Howard long ago reverted to public domain -- apart from material not published before his death, which has dribbled out over the last 70 years or so. I'd be surprised if there's even a shopping list scrawled by Howard that hasn't been published SOMEWHERE.
