Just picked this up at Balticon last weekend. Consists of several essays on Robert E. Howard (of Conan fame), basically rehashing the sentiment: “We should have taken this guy more seriously when he was alive, he would have been greatly respected had he lasted a little longer” and “history short-changed Howard, he was far more skilled than he is given credit”. There’s a lot of Same-old, Same-old here, but I’m enjoying the older essays by Leiber and De Camp quite a bit. Darrell Schweitzer can do literary criticism and editor chores fairly well. I have an old chapbook entitled “Discovering H.P. Lovecraft” that he did a yeoman’s job on. I think I like the earlier one better but this is a decent read so far.
