Notes

Edited by Paul Herman
All the texts were obtained from Howard’s original manuscripts, typescripts, carbons, or transcripts thereof, with the following exceptions:

“The Hyena” from Weird Tales, March 1928
“Spear and Fang” from Weird Tales, July 1925

“Let Me Dream by a Silver Stream” (poem)
“The Wind Blows” (1, poem)
“The Wind Blows” (2, poem)
“Black Canaan”
After publication of the first printing of PICTURES IN THE FIRE, it was discovered that the typescript used for “Black Canaan” was Howard’s final version, rather than the earlier version that was intended. To correct this error, the REH Foundation Press issued this chapbook and included it with copies of the first print run. Future print runs of PICTURES IN THE FIRE will have the early version of “Black Canaan” included in the book.
Limited edition of 200 copies

Cover art credited on the rear jacket flap. The art consists of color drawings of B&W photos of Robert E. Howard.
