The “Spicy” Side of REH

As previously mentioned here on the blog, the REH Foundation Press is coming out with a long awaited collection of Howard’s “spicy” stories. In the last sentence of this post from February 21, 2010, I opined that Rob probably had the idea for this book rattling around in his head and indeed it has come to fruition.

Information on pre-orders is coming in a week or two, so hold your horses. Meanwhile, here are the steamy contents:

Introduction by Patrice Louinet

The Stories:

“The Girl on the Hell Ship” (aka “She-Devil”)

“Ship in Mutiny”

“Desert Blood”

“The Purple Heart of Erlik”

“Murderer’s Grog”

“Guns of Khartum”

“Daughters of Feud”

Miscellanea:
