Rusty Burke, Don Herron, Brian Leno, and Bill Cavalier discuss the contributions of Robert E. Howard and Conan The Cimmerian to the birth of Sword & Sorcery. Some great overall Robert E. Howard discussion as well.
First installment of the celebration of Robert E. Howard’s birthmonth at Pulp Crazy.
From Pulpfest 2012 – The Illustrated Conan Panel – Jim and Ruth Keegan, along with Mark Schultz, offer a look at Conan of Cimmeria as depicted by various illustrators over the last eight decades and offer a modern perspective on illustrating Robert E. Howard’s immortal character.
True to the theme of the panel, there was art present via a slideshow. I have compiled some images via Google Images that I believe are the pictures used, or fairly close. I do not own any of these images, I have just put them on PulpCrazy’s server for preservation against possible future dead links.
In this week’s episode I will be discussing the original version of Adept’s Gambit by Fritz Leiber. Adept’s Gambit is a sword & sorcery tale starring Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. The original manuscript which contains references to the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft has been unearthed and published by Arcane Wisdom Press, edited by S.T. Joshi. This new limited edition hardcover contains bonus features including annotations from S.T. Joshi, an introduction from Joshi and Lovecraft’s commentary on the original version of Adept’s Gambit.
