The Robert E. Howard Foundation published Spicy Adventures in 2011. Not only is this collection the first time many of these stories have appeared in hardback, it is the first time most have appeared with all the spice that Howard intended. Besides all of the complete tales, this volume contains a large miscellanea section with drafts and synopsizes that allow readers to glimpse Howard’s creative process.
