In Remembrance of Robert E. Howard

Because there is nothing original I can say of Robert E. Howard on the day of his birth...I've read a number of great posts about Howard today...I will post one of my favorite Frank Frazetta paintings. I first encountered this image on the cover of Red Nails edited by Karl Wagner. Enjoy.


  1. That painting is one of the absolute greatest pieces of Conan illustration, not just because it's a fantastic piece of work, but because it evokes the scene it depicts utterly perfectly. Frazetta was the first artist to truly get Howard.
