Yes it's about Conan, I'd like to read some actual books by the man about Hyboria in the time around Conan, no Kull. So I'm wondering what is the best ones to start off with and should I read them in any perticular order?

I suppose I could go on the AoC forums but the powers that be there seems to have wised up and bolted the door.

Howard's works were recently re-released in new collections, at least in the US. The first one, I think, is The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian.

Fake edit - Hey, I was right: clicky.

The ones you can grab off ebay cheap.

Seriously, most of them are collections of shorts so don't worry too much about order.

Edit: Oh and don't bother asking on the AoC forums. I doubt anyone in there read the books.

Be aware also that Conan The Barbarian is the novelisation of the film and not one of the original books.

I had read that before, but am I the only one who thinks he looks like a member of Capone's Outfit?

Bummer, that only seems to be easily available in the UK. In the US it's $36.95 from a reseller.

Linky


I hate to disappoint you but my personal collection is bigger than that and doesn't include all of them. Still, it's a place to start.
