Pre-ordering is now available for The Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard, Volume 2: 1930-1932. This volume has over 100 letters, and is well over 500 pages. This volume attempts to collect all known REH letters written during this time span. Several of these letters have never been published before, and many, many others have only been published in a redacted state, missing poetry, fiction, or other content. All that has been restored for this volume.
For those wishing to learn about REH, this is one of the core collections to have. REH talks politics, current events, and the occasional bohemian humor with his friends, rips into HPL over civilization v. barbarism, swaps Texas folklore with August Derleth, chats it up with editors and fans. A fascinating collection. It also includes another fine cover by Jim & Ruth Keegan.
This volume is off at the printers, and is expected to ship in late October / early November. Those who already have a copy of Volume 1, the same copy number in Volume 2 will be held for you. And of course those who have already paid for all three don’t have to do anything, they will ship as soon as they arrive.
Ordering information can found at The Foundation’s website.
The REH Foundation Press is also proud to present a new series of REH postcards. These cards were debuted at GenCon, and we believe are the first REH-specific postcards ever created. The four cards in the series have full-sized, hi-resolution reproductions of actual photos of REH on the front. The back is set up to use as a true postcard, and includes whatever quote from REH may have appeared on the
original photo. A second smaller photo also appears on the back.
These cards are 4X6 inches, and of an appropriately heavy white stock.
The front photos on the four cards include:
Beachcombers’ Argument (photo shown at left)
REH at Fort McKavett
REH Under a Banana Tree
REH Drinking Beer
These cards are 50 cents each, with a minimum purchase quantity of four. They can be mixed or matched as you please. US shipping costs are included in the price. Cards are shipped first class in an oversized envelope. Please contact The Foundation at email@example.com for pricing of shipping to destinations outside the US, or if US shipping by other than first class is desired. Payment can be either by check mailed to REH Foundation Press, PO Box 251242, Plano, TX, 75025, or via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to Leo Grin for the hi-resolution scans used to make the cards.
