Description

Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan, King Kull, and others that defined heroic fantasy, lived and died in the small town of Cross Plains, Texas. While his books remain in print, Howard himself has fallen into obscurity, his life mired in speculation and half-truth. This engaging biography traces the roots of his writings, correcting long-standing misconceptions, and offers a tour of Howard's world as he saw it: through his own incomparable imagination.

This is the updated and expanded second edition of the Monkeybrain Books 2006 edition.This is the author's "director's cut" of his popular biography of Texas writer and creator of Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard and includes new information and facts that were not known during the writing of the first edition, an expanded chapter on Conan, a total of 35,000 more words, and expanded and corrected chapters on Howard's boxing stories, his westerns, both humorous and serious, and the events leading up to Howard's death as well as what happened afterward. Also included are an expanded and corrected index and bibliography, and author's notes on each chapter. This is Finn's definitive version of his biography, and one that any fan of Robert E. Howard will want to own.
