REH is my favorite author, plain and simply put. There's no other author (besides H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines) who can keep my nose buried in a book with vivid details, explosively dynamic action, imaginative storytelling, and wonderful characters and still enjoy from beginning to end. Conan is THE classic Howard character, however, I find myself enjoying characters like Solomon Kane and Kull on a more personal level. Phenomenal writer who left a larger-than-life legacy and fantastic tales of adventure and wonder. With that said, I still need to read some of his westerns and boxing stories he wrote.

Yeah I'm thinkin' I'm gonna go get me some more REH stuff (And a copy of King Solomon's Mines).

REH is by no means my favorite but he does have an extremely unique and enjoyable style. I've read all of the Conan stories in my measly single collection and some of them multiple times. They're awesome.

I found a couple of REH books in my dad's old bookshelf a few hours ago. Gonna give them a read next time I get the chance.

I've literally been reading Conan novels since this post almost exclusively. Pops has a hella collection.
