SONGS OF GIANTS is a collection of some of the very best poetry written by three giants of pulp literature; Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs and H. P. Lovecraft. In March 2019 Mark Wheatley launched a Kickstarter and it was a giant success. In a short period of time it was funded by 293 backers which pledged $13,415 to bring the project to life.

Wheatley has brought the poems to life with illustrations inspired by the early, classic, golden age of pulp illustrators.

There is also a mini-biography of Howard. Depending on your pledge on the Kickstarter you got an audio CD (Haunted House of Usher), the limited edition hardcover book, screen saver, wallpapers, signed comic books, portfolio of mini-prints and more.
