No forum devoted to REH and frequented by his fans is complete without a thread on Glenn Lord. Glenn is renowned as an REH scholar and editor (and all-around great guy), but he started out as the first Howard superfan. Lord hunted down everything he could find published by REH and then started tracking down Bob's unpublished work. Every Howard fan owes him a debt for his tireless efforts to preserve and promote Robert E. Howard's legacy.
Mr. Lord died December 31, 2011. Here are numerous encomiums to his greatness:
Adventure House is continuing to sell pulps, zines, and books from Glenn's collection on eBay as seller adventurehouse that it began doing at the last Windy City con. According to one of their ads: "Glenn Lord was the literary executor of the Robert E. Howard estate for several decades. Part of his fifty years of collecting includes those items that included Robert E. Howard's most iconic characters, including Conan, Kull, Solomon Kane and others. Adventure House and Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention has been granted the honor to sell this incredible collection. We are listing these items on our own website [adventurehouse dot com], here on eBay, and in person at the annual Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention [windycitypulpandpaper dot com] in the Chicago area each April. Each item sold through all these means includes a glossy color certificate of authenticity showing everyone that this item was once indeed part of this incredible collection."
