Inventory & Update

   Posted by: Rob Roehm    in Merchandise, News

After a flurry of sales, I figured it was time to give an inventory report.

Sentiment: An Olio of Rarer Works – The first printing is sold out; however, we have ordered a second printing of 50 copies. These should arrive at REH Central in late March. We are accepting pre-orders. Use the information here to place your order.

The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard – At the time of this writing, there are three copies left. Please email info@rehfoundation.org before sending payment as we may sell out at any moment.

The Early Adventures of El Borak – Of the 150 copies that will soon be available, 28 are still homeless. Pre-order information here.

A Rhyme of Salem Town, all three volumes of The Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard, and The Last of the Trunk are all still available, with more than 30 copies of each.

Gone

Sentiment: An Olio of Rarer Works is officially Sold Out. We have at least one copy with a dirty thumbprint on the page edges, and perhaps one more clean copy held back in case the postal service lost or damaged a book.  Anyone interested in the “dirty book,” or in being placed on a wait list for the other and/or future printings, should contact us: info@rehfoundation.org

There are still a few copies of Collected Poetry available, but email your interest and check the availability before sending payment.

At the time of this writing, there are fewer than ten copies of Collected Poetry remaining, and fewer than five of Sentiment: An Olio of Rarer Works. Be advised, if you are interested in ordering either of these titles, shoot us an email first to check the availability.

Pre-Order The Early Adventures of El Borak

   Posted by: Rob Roehm    in Merchandise, News

Now that everyone has had a chance to purchase the Del Rey volume El Borak and Other Desert Adventures, it’s time to complete the El Borak series by reading how it all began. The REH Foundation Press is proud to present The Early Adventures of El Borak. This volume contains those hard-to-find stories from the Cryptic publications of the 1980s, as well as several other related items, including the first publication of a synopsis for “Blood of the Gods.” The vast majority of the pieces in this collection are fragments and juvenilia.

This volume checks in at 350 pages, and will be printed in hardback with dust jacket, in a limited quantity of 150 copies, each individually numbered. Cover design and painting by Jim & Ruth Keegan; introduction by David Hardy; and edited by Rob Roehm. The book is expected to ship by the end of March.
