The Robert E. Howard Collection

You may not have heard the name Robert Ervin Howard before, but the chances are good that thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career you've heard of his most famous creation; Howard created Conan the Barbarian.
His stories of high adventure set in fantastical worlds appeared in numerous pulp magazines during his short lifetime, most notably in Weird Tales.
Much from that era has been forgotten or lost, but many of Howard's characters endure, enjoying a success in both print and on screen that he sadly never saw. He died in 1936 by his own hand, aged just thirty.

01. Conan the Barbarian (1982)
02. Conan the Destroyer (1984)
