in the original conan movie. after, conan escapes and finds the sword. he finds a woman who he sleeps but she turns out to be vampire is that right? how many time does conan faces the supernatural and not just wizards?

It's been years since I read the original stories, but I recall him running into a vampire woman in "Hour of the Dragon," a killer ape in "Rogues in the House," and an (implied) alien in "The Tower of the Elephant." And some kind of alluring demi-goddess in the "The Frost Giant's Daughter."

It wasn't just evil wizards . . . .

Hmm. I see that Malmont seems to have a new book out that involves Heinlein and Asimov fighting Nazi super-science or something. I'll have to check that out.
Sold! Gotta go find this one.

Thanks for the link. I love the Francavilla cover, it looks so 1930's Flash Gordon.

I've been reading the original stories (in the nice Gollancz edition, for the curious) and Yag-kosha from "The Tower of the Elephant" is definitely an alien - in the sense of the Lovecraftian gods, anyway.

Of the other stories I've read, he fights giants in "The Pool of the Black Ones", reanimated statues in "Iron Shadows of the Moon", and monstrous eldritch things in "Xuthal of the Dusk/The Slithering Shadow", "Queen of the Black Coast" and "Vale of the Lost Women". None of those stories involve wizards, although Howard's definitely pretty fond of sorcerors calling on the horrible abominations of Set. Guy does not like snakes.

I'm currently on "The Hour of the Dragon", and though the Conan stories can be pretty formulaic at times, the way the first chunk of this story so far is basically just a thinly reworked "Scarlet Citadel" is pretty blatant.

Good times, though, good times. Howard has a keen sense for pulpy reading that's very easy to devour.

I don't recall them ever meeting. Wolverine did cross Conan and Red Sonja in the old 'What if' series, issue 16. I liked that issue quite a bit.

I liked that one a lot, both Marvel's and Dynamite's versions.

I don't recall Dejah's age was ever given in the books. Burroughs hints that Carter could be of an unknown age as he doesn't remember being younger than 30 or so. I sometimes wonder if the Mars tales are meant to take place in the distant past relative to Earth and that John Carter traveled not only across space but time as well.

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

well just finished a princess of mars now onto the gods of mars. I can't wait for the movie so looking forward to it. the director called the movie historical martian acturacte. I hope he's right and it comes to be a great movie and as acurate to the book as possible. and nothing like the traci lords movie.

all so can't wait for the for the conan movie next week.

Has there been any word on whether or not the Solomon Kane movie is ever going to get a US release date?
