Kate Sherrod here, one of the co-founders of SMISA, with a confession to make.
I've never read any of the original or later pastiche Conan books or stories. Until now.
For one of my first reading efforts in this blighted new year is to read ALL OF IT. All of Robert E. Howard's original short stories. All of Harry Turtledove's Conan novels. All of L. Sprague deCamp's pasticherpieces. Every shred. In publication order, if possible.
And then (another embarrassing announcement), I'm going to move on and read all of Fritz Lieber's Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories.
That should adequately fill the time while I wait for the next installment in fellow SMISA founder Jennifer Williams' Copper Promise series. Which is somewhat delayed, as she's been down with the crud, poor lamb.
I mean, come on, Jennifer! Shouty Man up! Strap on that plate! Bust those bugs into another dimension.
Yeah, that's better.
Anyway, what Shouty Men in Shiny Armour fiction are you most looking forward to this year?
