|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 list eveything. Some additional material is included, such as verse books, books about Howard, etc. Please feel free to comment on anything you find here. And to reiterate one more time, this site is not yet complete.
|This is an alphabetical listing of all fiction, non-fiction, synopses
and fragments written by Robert E. Howard. Each entry lists all appearances
of the story from its first until most recent. The stories are listed by
the first published title, although there are a couple of exceptions.
Other titles are included as links. For further information, each source
listing is linked back to other lists on the page.
|An alphabetic listing of all entries in the master list linked back
to the master list.
|This is a timeline of events in Howard's publishing career while
he was alive or likely involved him before he died. This material is also
available on the REHUPA website. Includes history of submittals, rejections,
commentary from letters, publishing dates and other relevent material.
Published works are linked back to master story list.
|Lists of all the sources for the fiction, non-fiction, synopses
and fragments written by Robert E. Howard. The table below contains links
to each list's description; each description starts with a link to that
list. Each list is then linked to detail descriptions of the individual
sources. Some of the lists run 100-200K of text and may take a a short
while to load. The main culprits are the "Genre & Character", "Books",
"Anthologies","Foreign", "Periodicals" and "Other Pulps." The last five
are in the same file and it runs long.
Publisher - a listing of the more prominent publishers of Howard books. I have not listed all the publishers of anthologies, periodicals or pulps. Each publisher's listing has the books listed by the copyright year. Further details are available in the individual book listings.
Books - These are books which are 100% Howard material with a few exceptions. 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. Links are provided to versions of the same or nearly the same books printed by other publishers. Provided information includes a content listing, publication data, artist information and occasional notes of interest. Links are included to sub-lists of the books by format, ie hardback (HB), softback (SB), mass market paperback (PB) or booklet.
Anthologies - A list of anthologies that contain one or more Howard stories, predominately in book form. Stories listed are linked back to the master story list so other sources can be found. Also included in this section are books about Howard which contain Howard fiction in addition to other material, even if the Howard material is only a small part. The Lancer/Sphere/Ace Conans are listed here.
Periodicals - Lists of periodical type publications which contain one or more Howard pieces. Includes magazines, fanzines, comics, newspapers and some others. Each entry in each periodical is linked back to the master story list.
Weird Tales - A listing of all the Howard pieces (fiction and verse) that appeared in Weird Tales through the anniversary edititions in 1973-74. Howard's volume in Weird Tales is such that it merits a seperate listing. Includes cover scans of these rare pulps.
Genre & Character - A modifed version of the Price/Marek listing from Cromlech #3. All characters based in an actual historical setting have been moved to the historical sub-section. A couple of new sections have been added including one listing unpublished works. Each sub-section is divided into two parts; a listing of all stories in that sub-section and a listing of all sources that contain one or more of the previously listed stories. Some verse is included in this list.
Foreign - These are the few foreign editions included in the story list. This is by no means complete and I hope to expand this later.
Other pulps - Listing of Howard's appearances in pulps other than Weird Tales. There is some cross-over between a few items here and the periodical listing. While the Last Celt puts the pulp appearances in with the other periodicals, I wanted them seperate.
by Year - A date listing of all the sources which appear in the list. This is pending and will be completed later.
Verse - A listing of the major verse collections. A complete listing is out of the scope of this page right now but I hope to include one later.
About REH - Listing of sources that are about Howard or his material. There may be some sources here that are also listed in the fiction lists because of Howard fiction included in them. Content listings for things like Amra or the Howard Collector will hopefully be added later.
