This book - an expansion of his essay in his Arkham House book "Literary Swordsmen & Sorcerers" - was the preliminary to de Camp's full-blown biography of REH entitled: "DARK VALLEY DESTINY," published by BlueJay books in 1983. It's a very nicely done book with artwork throughout by Stephen Fabian, Virgil Finlay, Roy Krenkel, George Barr and C. Lee Healy, with an excellent portrait by Charlie McGill of Howard on the cover. Printed upon heavy quality paper the text is divided into 10 parts: 1. The Formative Years, 2. The Die is Cast, 3. Into Manhood, 4. Literary Influences, 5. Celtic Heritage, 6. A Product of His Times, 7. His Markets Widen, 8. Thoughts of Suicide, 9. The Arrival of Conan, 10. His Writing Style, 11. Into Other Areas, 12. Productive Years, 13. All Fled All Done, 14. Possible Reasons, 15. The Revival. If you don't have a lot of time to read De Camp's book-length biography, this makes for a great crash-course introduction, is very concise, and a fast read. De Camp had the advantage of visiting Howard's hometown, CROSS PLAINS in 1965 when there were still people alive who'd know Robert E. Howard

Conan, Solomon Kane, sword & sorcery
