Howard, Robert E.: The Robert E. Howard Collection, v1, 27 March 2008.

The Robert E. Howard Collection is my title for all the titles available in Gutenberg Australia listed under "Other", with the exception of a duplicate “Valley of the Worm,” of which I could see no difference. (If one is an earlier version, with significant changes, then I’ll later add that story to Version 2 of this Collection.)

This Collection contains 92 stories of varying length, encompassing such areas as Weird Southwest, Weird Menace, Horror, Fantasy Adventure, to name a few.

I recognize that some of the stories may not be categorized correctly. If you will point out my errors, I will correct this in a Version 2. Additionally, if new titles become available (but not any from the recognized Conan canon, already available here on MobileRead), then I’ll also include those in a later version of this Collection.

Here’s the contents and ordering I used, based upon Gutenberg Australia:

This was a lot of work, but I’ve been thinking of doing it for a long time. There are some things I’m not entirely satisfied with regarding layout, things which I may change in a later version.

However, I do hope you find pleasure from these stories. I remember reading them with great enjoyment when I was a teenager.

Once I quit "wasting" time on Forums. hahahah.

Seriously, I'm in the middle of teaching right now, but the next break that comes, I plan to reassemble the whole thing with any additional stories and then also make it available for the mobi/prc. crowd as well.

I'll also be adding emdashes and improving it.

Thank you for the kind comments, by the way.

In the meantime it is possible to run it through Calibre and convert it to mobi format if a person wants the ebook but doesn't have a sony ebook reader.
