I was not able to go to Howard days 2018 like I had wanted to. (next year for sure!) But I was able to obtain some books only available to those who were lucky enough to attend. The great Bobby Derie had three books at the annual event that he gave away.  Through my super secret sources I was able to secure copies of these books to add to my Robert E. Howard collection.

So this week I will be spotlighting these awesome books!

Thanks Bobby!

The first book I will spotlight is:


Index to One Who Walked Alone and Day of the Stranger by Novalyne Price Ellis. Compiled and with notes by Robert Derie

Info from Howard Works.

The Online Robert E. Howard Bibliography


A great resource!





This is usually the spot where I like to put a bio and links for the author. When I asked Today’s guest for a bio and links he said “No need to muck with bios or links to my blogs. Those who know me already know it, those who don’t won’t care.”

Well I do care so I dug up some info because I think people will want to know.


I was able to find:

BOBBY DERIE: Pulp scholar. Sex & the Cthulhu Mythos dude. Reader of dead men’s letters.

Or how about:

BOBBY DERIE is a weird fiction scholar and the author of Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos (2014, Hippocampus Press). According to family lore, his father wanted to name him Conan, but his mother vetoed it.

And as for social media links I won’t post those but he is on Twitter and Facebook if you so choose to look for him.


And now some book links:
