I've only tried to actually read Lovecraft three times, and I found his writing style rather unappealing.

However, his imagery and the power of his imagination are absolutely undeniable. The whole Old God/Ancient Ones mythos is spellbinding, and his sci-fi and horror influence is still felt broadly.

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.
Really? *starts taking notes for universe he's outline for future stories*

Which hasn't left me with much excuse not to read it anymore, now has it?

I'm taking a crack at the Howard stories because hell why not. Just finished The Phoenix and the Sword, which the internet assures me is the first of his Conan tales.

While I always did find it odd that a Cimmerian (i.e. Crimean) hero had a Gaelic name I had no idea it was intentional before reading this, but him throwing around Badb and Morrigan as curses is kind of a clue.

It was a fun bit of bloody business at court, anyway.

Just a shame del Toro's Mountains of Madness adaption got shafted, or you'd have an incredibly prescient thread here.

According to del Toro, damned if he knows:

http://www.deadline.com/interstitial/?ref=http://www.deadline.com/2011/03/qa-guillermo-del-toro-on-why-he-will-direct-pacific-rim-after-at-the-mountains-of-madness-fell-apart/

del Toro wrote:
You may think I’m being glib, but I don’t know. Since the day of the decision, I haven’t had a face to face with them. We’ve exchanged a few phone calls. I my mind, we were given the parameters of a budget and screenplay, and I was given the chance by the studio to create a visual presentation. They were blown away by the visual presentation, they openly admitted to loving the screenplay, saying it was dead on. And we hit the target on the budget they gave us, not a figure I arrived at. This came after months and months of story boarding, haggling with VFX companies, and bringing down the budget number. The week before the decision, I was scouting in the border of Canada and Alaska. We were a week away from opening offices in Toronto. We were crewed up, and frankly, I am as puzzled as most people are. One of the biggest, biggest points for me with this movie was the scope and the R, going hand in hand.
Seems a big budget R-rated movie with albino penguins made investors skittish, I guess.

The only stuff that IMDB and Wikipedia have that hasn't come out yet, is his The Dark Tower project.
