I have been adding many new books to my collection recently. My interest in reading has shifted to older books and authors. So I thought instead of just a simple book haul post I would do more of a spotlight/introduction post as well. So in the post below you will not only find the usual book haul photo’s, but book and author info as well. I hope you will take the time to look it over and maybe take a chance at checking out books and authors that you may have forgot about or discover in these post!

I found this copy at my local used book store! Yes a REH collector must have sold their collection and I have been trying to get as much of it as I can.

More REH to add to my collection!

Very happy to find this treasure!

Today we have:

The Howard Collector #16 (Volume 3 Number 4)

Glenn Lord published a few REH collections on his own, such as the periodical The Howard Collector #1–18. In The Howard Collector, from 1961 to 1973, Lord featured previously unpublished (or very rare) pieces by Howard, letters by REH and those who knew him, indices of poems and stories, reprints of articles related to Howard, and news about upcoming publications and other events.
