The Conan and Robert E. Howard Website


Page Title Goes Here


The pages herein deal with topics relating primarily to Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard (the creator of Conan) and his other works, the history, myths, etc. of real barbarians, and ancient swords and weapons. Some of my other interests are represented here as well, thrown in just for fun! Please feel free to make any suggestions, requests, or contributions to these web pages, as well as discuss any of the topics above. A fellow REH fan once said, "There's damn few of us and we'd best support each other," and I wholeheartedly agree!

I've done my best to present everything in an objective, scholarly, and true manner. These web pages are for anyone who appreciates escaping into a good story, experiencing great adventures, and of course, those who enjoy the exceptional work of Robert E. Howard! I hope that these web pages help to encourage interest in the writings of Robert E. Howard, and provide a valuable resource for information about Howard and his creations.

The "Real Barbarians" section of these web pages are meant to suppliment the "Conan" section. Most of the pages in the Real Barbarian section will be links to other people's pages who can do a much better job of presenting the historical information than I can. Other pages are "related" to Conan in some way, but are factual. For example, "The Riddle of Steel" page takes off on a theme that ran through the movie "Conan the Barbarian," and generally describes how steel was made in ancient times (as well as some interesting stuff about purchasing a sword replica, etc.).

The "Conan & Robert E. Howard" section of these web pages deals with information relating to or about Robert E. Howard and his works, with a well deserved emphisis on REH's best known character... Conan.

The "Lord of This Keep" section is a repository for things realting specifically to the creation of these web pages in general, some information about myself, and just about anything else that doesn't fit into either the "Conan" or "Real Barbarian" sections.

I hope you enjoy these web pages!
