The UK based small press Wandering Star issued glorious editions of Robert E. Howard’s work, including The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, The Ultimate Triumph, as well as two volumes of Howard’s Conan tales.
Subterranean Press is proud to continue this series of limited editions, beginning with Kull: Exile of Atlantis, exquisitely illustrated with color plates and black and white illustrations illuminating the text. We now continue with our second offering, Crimson Shadows, The Best of Robert E. Howard, volume one. We plan to match or better the quality of materials used in the Wandering Star editions, and will be doing a number of other books in the series.
Among the great pulp writers whose work continues to enthrall new generations of readers -- Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.P. Lovecraft, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler--few were as versatile as Robert E. Howard. Best known as the creator of Conan, Howard also wrote not only of other memorable fantasy characters, such as Puritan swordsman Solomon Kane and Pictish king Bran Mak Morn, but hundreds of stories of boxing, detection, westerns, horror, “weird menace,” desert adventure, lost race, historicals, “spicies”, even “true confessions.”
To all of them he brought his gift for exciting, fast-paced action and a poetic economy of language. The two volumes in The Best of Robert E. Howard bring together the most outstanding of his tales, enabling both long-time fans and new readers alike to sample the varied repertoire of “the greatest pulp writer in the whole wide world.”
