'The Teeth Of The Tiger'(featuring Arsene Lupin) by Maurice Leblanc, and 'The Tenants Of Mallory' by J.S. Le Fanu- part of my continuous digging into remote period genre literature as research for a project I am working on.

... AND Zombies?! Well, that book sounded rather stuffy and boring girlish fluff, cakes, and tea parties before; but, now...

Kind of like all of the above, but coated in blood and smelling foul? Like Agathe Christie or Watain?

There is a sequel: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I've read neither.

...wherein we cheer for the former, obviously.

Darling, I am not entirely sure if i love you underneath this exotic garden canopy of your ill bred estate, due to my misinformed calculations of your true worth, and the qualms of Society- tear/embroidered tear cloth- Oh my dearest, but what is that hideousness now crawling out from the Loch? ...

I notice that you and others here read comic books, and I too have read far more than my fair share of them. All of the Roy Thomas/ John Buscema Conan stuff is out of this world! You are reading Elfquest, which I have not yet, but have you ever tried Cerebus by Dave Sim? There was also a 4 volume edition of Fafhrd And Gray Mouser put out years ago by Marvel (?) that is written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Mike Mignola, that I know many here would enjoy.

Finished Ann Harries' "Manly Pursuits"
Not bad part of art. I liked the presentation of some english
conquerors attitude towards other races. I found it funny and irritating that
there were idiots who believed in the higher position of "their" race...

As much as I love Savage Sword of Conan ... nothing even comes close to the actual works of Robert E. Howard .... and I think HP Lovecraft said that himself!

Lovecraft never lived long enough to see other authors attempting on writing Conan stories... Howard died in june 1936, Lovecraft died nine months later...

On the back of one of the recently released "Conan" collections , there is a direct quote of HP Lovecraft: "In stark living fear , who is even in the running of RE Howard"

What I meant previously was , no author then or even now comes close to his level of writing .... Lovecraft agrees!

As for Savage Sword , the series was mostly just comic adaptations of RE Howard tales ... the latter versions (#78+) just losing the "awesomeness" of the original Howard "Conan" ...


I'm sorry but reading the likes of Robert Jordan and "Drizzt" is about as exciting as watching paint dry ....

Lovecraft and Two Gun Bob were friends, they corresponded a lot, and I guess what they have published on the backflap of that book is a quote from one of his letters. Howard wrote to Lovecraft that he wrote the Conan stories rather quickly because he dreaded that Conan was standing behind him to strike him down if he didn't finish the story. Lovecraft would never have known how other authors would revive Conan. To be honest: L. Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter have done fantastic jobs on reviving the barbarian. The original stories are the best, but I have read Cthulhu mythos by other authors than Lovecraft that was of a dreadful level...

Robert Jordan: you love him or hate him. He can go into detail a lot, and when you near the end of the book, the tempo quickens. Brandon Sanderson, who is finishing the series of The Wheel Of Time has much more speed in his narrative, which actually is an improvement. Nowadays I read a lot of Gaston Lagaffe, Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' and in between I squeeze 'Menselijk, al te menselijk' by Friedrich Nietzsche...
