This publication was created to safeguard the copyright of Robert E. Howard’s previously unpublished works. A limited run of 12 copies was produced, with two exclusive editions bound in leather and the remainder as comb-bound paperbacks. The content includes non-Howard material in Swedish, except for Patrice Louinet’s introduction and the “Notes” section, which offers insights into the stories.

Two copies have been placed in national libraries in Sweden, reflecting the European origin of the publication.

The goal of this publication is to compile and release all remaining unpublished prose, letters, and the prose and poetry within those letters by Robert E. Howard. This release aims to establish “publication rights” across Europe under the Berne Convention. For many of these letters, it marks their first complete publication.

Most of the stories can also be found in The Last of the Trunk by The Robert E. Howard Foundation. In addition, there are several letters in this volume.
