Beam Piper Excerpt: The stillness of the forest trail was so primeval that the tread of a soft-booted foot was a startling disturbance. At least it seemed so to the ears of the wayfarer, though he was moving along the path with the caution that must be practised by any man who ventures beyond Thunder River. He was a young man of medium height, with an open countenance and a mop of tousled tawny hair unconfined by cap or helmet. His garb was common enough for that country—a coarse tunic, belted at the waist, short leather breeches beneath, and soft buckskin boots that came short of the knee. A knife-hilt jutted from one boot-top. The broad leather belt supported a short, heavy sword and a buckskin pouch.
Welcome to The Works of Robert E.
Howard web page. The idea behind this page is to make available for the Howard scholar and collector, a list of every story, article, fragment and synopsis written by REH, and where to find them. It is not intended to make judgements about Howard and what he wrote, but merely to list everything.
Some additional material is included, such as verse books, books about Howard, etc. Please feel free to comment on anything you find here. To reiterate one more time, this site is a work in progress and is not yet complete. This is an alphabetical listing of all fiction, non-fiction, synopses, and fragments written by Robert E.
Each entry lists all appearances of the story from its first up to the most recent. This complete story listing is found under the first published title of the story, although there are a couple of exceptions.
Stories with alternate titles will also appear under the alternate title listing. Links to the alternate titles are provided. For further information, each source listing is linked back to other lists on the page. Start of list. An alphabetic listing of all entries in the master list linked back to the master list.

This list is being updated to include publishers of anthologies, periodicals, and pulps. The books provide the greatest concentration of Howard material and take precedence in the listings over the other formats. A cover scan is included for each book. The stories are set against very different backgrounds — Kull lives in a mythical age even eons before the time of Conan, Bran in the times of the Roman Empire, and Turlogh, explicitly anchored in history, takes part in the Battle of Clontarf in the year There are connections, though: The two stories about Dark Agnes in particular, Sword Woman and Blades for France , demonstrate how far ahead of his time Howard was when he was at his best — even today, the uncompromising radicalness with which Agnes repudiates traditional female gender roles is stunning.
A classic story for all who enjoy a well-told exciting fantasy adventure.

Howard started to write early — from childhood on, he had known that this was what he wanted to do — and he turned into an incredibly prolific author. Fantasy was only one of many genres in which he wrote, and even within the fantasy genre the Conan stories make up only a fraction of his immense literary output. Howard wrote to earn a living, and since the magazines that bought his stories were paying poorly, he had to make up for this by volume.
He was a careful writer, usually writing outlines and several drafts of his stories before he submitted them, but he wrote fast, rarely ran out of ideas or of older stories to re-use and improve , and above all he was an unremitting worker: Howard pounded away at historical fiction, fantasy, adventure, horror, boxing, western, detective and comedy stories, and also at several hundred poems — though these, he knew, would not be published by the magazines he was writing for.
From early age on he suffered from depression, and then he was burdened by the chronic illness of his mother.
It was she who in his childhood had installed in him the love for literature and poetry, and he felt very close to her — when she became bed-ridden, it was he who became her caregiver for many years until her death. His unsteady commercial success as a writer did not mitigate the pain of his depression, and a longstanding on-and-off love affair with the only woman he had ever been closely acquainted with was leading nowhere.
When he was told that his mother would not awake from the coma she had fallen into, on June 11th, , he felt released of his duty to her, walked out to his car, took a gun he had borrowed from the glove box, and shot himself.
