Coming Soon: The Early Adventures of El Borak

Posted by Rob Roehm in News   

With the Del Rey release of El Borak and Other Desert Adventures looming in the not too distant future, we thought everyone would like to see the Keegans’ other El Borak cover, this one done for the Robert E. Howard Foundation Press. We will begin taking pre-orders soon, but it’s not too late to email us at info@rehfoundation.org to help us determine how large the First Printing will be. Ordering information will be posted when available; until then, the contents for The Early Adventures of El Borak are listed below.
