Posted by Rob Roehm in Merchandise   


UPDATE: This collection is now available. All pre-orders have shipped.

The REH Foundation Press is proud to present Western Tales, a collection of Robert E. Howard’s traditional and weird western stories. The book checks in at 550 pages, and will be printed in hardback with dust jacket, in a limited first-print quantity of 200 copies, each individually numbered. Cover art by Tom Gianni and introduction by James Reasoner. This volume marks the first book publication of “Six-Gun Interview” and the first appearance anywhere of “Drag”—an item bibliographers refer to as Untitled, “It was a strange experience . . .”—this one-page fragment mentions the Sonora Kid, as well as Gordon (aka El Borak) and Lal Singh. While both of those items are unfinished, Western Tales also features the never-before published complete alternate version of “The Devil’s Joker” and other rarities. The book is expected to ship in December 2013. Order yours today.


Western Tales is $45 for REHF Premium members, $50 for Regular members and non-members (all prices in US dollars) plus shipping. (How to become a member? Look here.)
