Howard criticism together for the first time under one set of covers, with an Introduction and Afterword by Don Herron.The title essay rocked standard perceptions of a classic supernatural tale that everyone thought they knew inside and out — as Leno took Howard’s “Pigeons from Hell” and showed convincingly how it satirized the New England horror fiction of H. P. Lovecraft.Then Leno took to the texts again to investigate one of the long-standing puzzles of Howard’s life: Did he or did he not see the 1933 film King Kong before his death in 1936?And trust to Leno to come up with an unexpected source for Howard’s popular tale “The Frost-Giant’s Daughter,” featuring the Texan’s most famous creation, Conan the barbarian.If you enjoy Howardian litcrit, Leno’s got the knack.
