My wife and I were doing some cleaning and reorganizing of things in the living room, and behind the couch was a box. My wife opened the box and said, “I’m guessing these are yours.” I asked what was in the box, and she machine gun tossed a group of books to me. Conan the Avenger, Conan the Buccaneer and Conan the Usurper, all by Robert E Howard. Also in the group was the Dark Horse Comics graphic novel Conan Born on the Battlefield. Rounding out the pile of reading material was The Road by Cormac McCarthy.
This was a treasure trove find for me. For those who do not know, Robert E Howard is my all-time favorite author and The Road is the best novel I have as yet read, and that’s saying something.
After this discovery I’m in a writing mood!
