Time is running out to cast your ballots in the first annual Robert E. Howard Foundation Awards. All past and present members are eligible to vote. Head on over to the nominees page and send your votes to by March 30. Every vote counts!

The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard is officially SOLD OUT. There are no plans at present for another printing, but let us know if you missed out. If enough people want one, we’ll see what we can do about another edition.

The first printing of The Early Adventures of El Borak is also SOLD OUT. We will probably do another printing soon.

The second printing of Sentiment: An Olio of Rarer Works is available for purchase here.


The Robert E. Howard Foundation Awards

   Posted by: Rob Roehm    in Events, News

The departure of The Cimmerian early last year left a gaping hole in Howard fandom; not only were we used to receiving a bi-monthly publication devoted to Robert E. Howard, we were also surprised two or three times a year with a Cimmerian Library chapbook, yearly slip-cases, and the annual Cimmerian Awards, which honored the best in Howardian scholarship for the previous year. While no other publication has stepped up to match editor Leo Grin’s brainchild, the Robert E. Howard Foundation has decided to pick up the awards concept, which began in 2005, and continue where they left off.

The nominees for the 2009 and 2010 Foundation Awards can be found here. The rules for voting are at the end of each year’s nominees. For this year only, anyone who was a member of the Foundation (Supporting, Friend, or Legacy Circle) at any time prior to January 1, 2010 can vote. The 2011 awards will be decided by those who were members in 2010.

Browse the categories and nominees, read the rules for voting, and send your ballots to Be sure to include your name with your ballot if you want your votes to count. Polls close March 31, 2010. Winners will be announced at Robert E. Howard Days in June.
