(2nd Edition)
Coming soon!

Wednesday, January 26, 2022

Conan le Cimmérien - Xuthal la Crépusculaire 
(Xuthal of the Dusk)
Now available!

A tempting city with morbid secrets.

Lost in the infinity of a sandy desert, Conan advances accompanied by Natala, a slave with a wild beauty. The water and food reserves are now exhausted and under this blazing sun, that only means one thing: death. While the last forces of Natala gradually abandon her, Conan sees in the distance, to the south, a city that looks like a mirage. This is Xuthal. At this moment, it symbolizes life and salvation in the eyes of the two lovers, but on entering its inner courtyard, the emptiness and silence that reign there portend the worst. On the ground, only the body of a man lies, cold and abandoned. Without knowing it, Conan and Natala have just engulfed themselves in the mouth of a wolf with an unnameable form: Thog, god of the mysterious and imposing fortress.

Christophe Bec and Stevan Subic give life to a captivating, morbid story full of erotic overtones. A work with multiple levels of readings that fascinates with its graphic beauty and its refined verb.

Now available in hardcover and paperback!

The Collected Letters of Robert E. Howard volume 1, Ultimate Edition, is now available on Amazon in both hardcover and paperback.

Discover some of the early elements of writing style and personality that would go on to define Robert E. Howard, the professional writer. Known to his friends and family simply as "Bob," these early letters illustrate a life-long interest in poetry, boxing, folk songs, and the Irish and the Celts. These letters provide an intimate window as Howard works to develop his writer's craft, creating poems, dramas, parodies of Fu Manchu and detective stories, as well as ribald and bawdy plays and poems. Also revealed are Howard's views on the world at large, including political, social, and philosophical issues, as well as details of his day-to-day life. Don't miss this rare opportunity to get to know Bob Howard on a more personal level, as his friends once knew him.

Robert E. Howard's famous Cimmerian UNCENSORED! 
Discover the true Conan, unrestrained, violent, and sexual. Read the story as he intended! 

In Iron Shadows in the Moon, a young woman in danger is pursued by her vile master. Conan, whose family has just been wiped out by this same master, puts an end to the beauty's pursuer and saves her with a blow of his sword. Bound by fate, the couple decides to hit the road together. Their journey takes them to an island where they discover strange ruins inhabited by dark magic. Their paradise-like refuge soon turns into a suffocating nightmare where shadows lurk. Who knows the extent of the dangers that lie there? They will quickly learn that on an island, the biggest threat does not always come from the outside…

In The Man-Eaters of Zamboula, the Cimmerian finds himself in the land of a thousand and one nights! A crossroads of beliefs, languages, and cultures, the mythical trading city of Zamboula is also the scene of many dark legends. Upon paying the city a visit, Conan is warned of the dangers of Aram Baksh's home. It is said that most of the foreigners who stay there disappear under obscure circumstances…and it is precisely there that the Cimmerian is spending the night. But by lifting the veil on these mysterious cases of kidnappings, the Cimmerian will discover another secret, even more terrible, linked to the whole of the city of Zamboula…

BONUS: Includes the original Robert E Howard prose stories and a complete cover gallery!

Hardcover, 7x10, 168 pages, Full Color, $24.99.
