Jesus. He's one of two authors that I've ever put down without finishing, and I've been reading ~50 books/year since 2009.

How long til a black label penguin classics for BotNS

Are you implying Howard doesn't belong in modern classics?
>>
I haven't read any of Howard's genre fiction trite. But Conan is just a barbarian version of lord of the rings. I mean being genre automatically makes it awful in my book, but Conan is just a banal, pulpy, lamentable piece of trite.

I like to throw around the word genre and automatically denounce it without any explanation, its genre thats good enough. And i like the word trite, m'lady. LotR is just an Enid Blyton version of Conan. Being genre automatically makes it awful in my book, but LotR is just sappy, anorakish, boring piece of trite.

9/10 troll, misspelling the word 'tripe' twice and failing to use proper capitalization is a nice touch on the 'le patrish idiot' troll.
>>
>>7229808
not sure if also trolling but trite and tripe are both words
