Sinopsis: The UK based small press Wandering Star issued glorious editions of Robert E. Howard s work, including The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, The Ultimate Triumph, as well as two volumes of Howard's Conan tales.
Subterranean Press is proud to continue this series of limited editions, beginning with Kull: Exile of Atlantis, exquisitely illustrated with color plates and black and white illustrations illuminating the text. We plan to match or better the quality of materials used in the Wandering Star editions, and will be doing the other books in the series, including the third volume of Conan stories, as well as The Best of Robert E. Howard, volumes one and two, and much more.
Review: As some cover blurbs so rightly state, "Before Conan--there was Kull!" The warrior Kull was yet another popular creation of pulp writer Robert E. Howard (1906-1936), generally credited as the originator of the subgenre heroic fantasy. Yet Kull should not be dismissed as second-rate Conan. (Although Howard did transform a few unsold Kull adventures into those of Conan the Cimmerian when the later series took off with the public.) Set in ancient, lost Atlantis, the Kull stories take place mostly after the barbarian has already come to power as King Kull of Valusia. What makes these scant dozen stories most memorable is Howard's heightened style of mystical decadence, similar here to his Weird Tales contemporary, Clark Ashton Smith. Rest assured there's enough gruesome bloodletting and wanton savagery to satisfy the most ardent Howard reader. (Variant editions of this collection have been published over the years, with the uncompleted stories finished posthumously by Lin Carter. Other editions have simply presented the few story fragments as untouched--and unadulterated--Robert E. Howard.) --Stanley Wiater

Descripción Subterranean Press, [Burton, MI], 2008. Large octavo, illustrations by Justin Sweet, cloth. First edition. One of 1500 numbered copies signed by artist Justin Sweet. Collection of stories featuring the third of Howard's major heroes (after Conan and Kane). "Although published by Subterranean, this represents a continuation of the Howard series, edited by Rusty Burke, that had been published in several volumes by Wandering Star of England. It bears the same overall approach, impressively combining textual integrity, classically balanced typography, and artwork reminiscent of N. C. Wyeth. The whole production here and in the other titles of the series, in fact, is a worthy echo of the Scribner Classics series of the 1910s and 1920s." - Robert Eldridge.
