This is good for Howard fans. Besides the items shown above, a search for Howard-related titles at Lulu revealed the following (most in both paper and hard back editions):
The Robert E. Howard Reader by “Albert Schweitzer”
The Robert E. Howard Reader Volume One is a collection of some of Robert E.
Howard’s greatest adventures. None of the stories appearing in The Robert E. Howard Reader are found in the two Del Rey “best of” collections, making it a wonderful companion piece to those volumes. This is the one and only ORIGINAL Robert E. Howard Reader, first published in 2007. It consists of content by ROBERT E. HOWARD.
Robert E. Howard: World’s Greatest Pulpster by Dennis McHaney
This book details the writing career of Robert E. Howard, the author who created Conan the Barbarian.
It is a unique look at the pulp magazines that gave him his creative playground, told in letters from the readers of those magazines, and in letters and remembrances from his closest friends. The book is lavishly illustrated with color cover reproductions of many of the magazines in which his stories originally appeared. Winner of the 2006 Cimmerian Award, which is currently the highest achievement in Robert E. Howard studies.
Robert E. Howard: Selected Poems
A large and representative selection of the poetic work of Robert E. Howard, with a general introductory essay, 30 chapter introductions, and commentary by Prof. Frank Coffman, one of the foremost authorities on Howard’s verse and “ways with words.” Three indexes add to the value of this ample selection: by title, by first lines, and a “Form Finder” index to allow quick access to Howard’s work with the ballad, the sonnet, blank verse, free verse and other forms and techniques. Well over half of Howard’s more than 700 poems are included in this text, set in a text size and format for presentation that enhances readability and enjoyment. For those who are familiar with Howard’s prose fictional works, but who remain uninitiated in the many qualities and nuances of Howard’s verse, this compilation and commentary will offer insights into the complexity, quality and breadth of his work. For those who believe they know Howard’s poetic work, some new perspectives will broaden their appreciation.
A Gent from Bear Creek by Robert E. Howard
Saddle up, pards, and ride the range with one of Robert E. Howard’s greatest characters, Breckinridge Elkins. This is the novel version of A GENT FROM BEAR CREEK, first published in 1937 in London, and the rarest and most valuable Howard book ever published. It was reprinted in facsimile form by Donald M. Grant in the sixties, but every reprinting of it since then has been edited. This version restores the original Jenkins text. The original dust jacket is reproduced on this edition. There are only a handful of original dust jackets in existence, most of them in libraries in England.
And a whole lot more, including all of the Foundation’s Lulu books. A 30% discount is even bigger than our members receive.
All of my Roehm’s Room Press books are available, too, including Howard’s Haunts and the brand new Lone Scout of Letters:
Herbert C. Klatt was a primary figure of the Lone Scouts of America movement in Texas. Not only did he contribute to Lone Scout, the organization’s official organ, he also wrote articles for a plethora of “tribe papers” and edited Lone Scout columns for regional and community newspapers. Despite all this, Klatt is probably best known as a friend and correspondent of Texas author Robert E. Howard. Klatt’s importance in Howard’s biography has not been fully explored, but he was instrumental in the introduction of his more famous friend to the group of writers that eventually produced The Junto, including Harold Preece and Booth Mooney. Upon his death in 1928, Klatt’s friends attempted to garner support for a memorial collection of his writings. Plans were made and printers contacted, but the attempt was never realized—-until today. This anthology collects Klatt’s letters to Tevis Clyde Smith and a sampling of his Lone Scout material. It also includes material by Robert E. Howard, Truett Vinson, and Smith.
Plus a pile of other items. Happy shopping.
