Wow. I did not realize I hadn’t posted here since April! I haven’t been writing much since wrapping up The Public Life of Sherlock Holmes over at BlackGate.com in March, though I have been reading a LOT.
Lately, it’s been another visit to Hyboria and the world of Conan the Cimmerian. Better known as ‘The Barbarian.’ Which gave me the itch to write something for Black Gate again. So, I did! Click on over for my thoughts on the Tor pastiches that were a very mixed bag.
After reading several pastiches, I pulled the first Del Rey Conan book from the shelf and was again awed by Robert E. Howard’s amazing writing.
