All entries are alphabetized by series and title:

Created in 1932 by pulp writer Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936) for Weird Tales magazine, Conan the Barbarian almost single-handedly spawned the modern sword & sorcery novel, having inspired countless imitators with similarly gutteral, primitive-sounding surnames and the selfsame penchant for bloodshed. The Hyborian exploits of this brusque adventurer--an anti-hero, of sorts--has not only been extensively reprinted in numerous languages, but has also made the transition to such mediums as comic books, film, television, spoken-word adaptations, and even video games. The character is also often associated with famed fantasy illustrator Frank Frazetta (1928-present), whose paintings graced many of Howard's novels in the 1960s and 1970s, and which are still some of the best-selling art prints of their type today.
