Robert E. Howard in the Pulps

Sunday , 17, July 2022 Leave a comment

In the 1990s, it seemed a new book on pulp art or lavishly illustrated books on the pulp magazines came out every year. Lee Server’s Danger is My Business was a great introduction to various pulp magazine genres with lots of color reproductions of pulp magazine covers.

Robert E. Howard in the Pulps Vol. One is a throwback to those books. Editor and publisher Dennis McHaney has a history in the small press going back to the early 1970s. He has published The Howard Review and various books including Robert E. Howard: World’s Greatest Pulpster and Anniversary: A Tribute to Glenn Lord and The Howard Collector. Dennis has helped with books on artist J. Allan St. John and has published a whole bunch of fanzines in addition like Barbarian Cinema.

His newest publications is Robert E. Howard in the Pulps Vol. One. This is an 8.5 x 11 inch book, 112 pages combining essays with stunning reproductions of both cover and interior art from pulp magazines containing stories by Robert E. Howard.
