The Hyborian Age (Robert E Howard)

In "The Comming of Conan the Cimmerian" there is this essay of REH called "The Hyborian Age", it's awesome! I really love that read at the end of the book, anyway, any of you can tell me if this write is online somewhere?

I'd like to use it for something that I'm working on, but I could save some time if I don't have to transcribe the whole thing.

Well, any other stuff Conan related would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
 
It is also in the original printing of the rule book. It is also in the Ace Lancer editions of Conan and Conan the Avenger (split into two parts).

I have an online version at:

http://hyboria.xoth.net/history/hyborian_age.htm

Not sure if the text is word-for-word identical to the REH original (as it is based on articles that appeared in the Conan comic by Marvel), but it's pretty close.

The entire Howard's version can be found in http://nemedie.free.fr/site/article.php3?id_article=11
Although the introdution is in French, the whole R. E. Howard's text is written in English.

This site is kept by silly twats. At least we know where the chicken flue comes from.

Thulsa's version is complete.

I didn't understand... What's your problem with the site I mentioned above? As far as I know, the Thulsa's version is a copy of the Roy Thomas' one, not from the essay "The Hyborian Age" as related by Howard.

I think I was clear enough

I don't think so. You seem you was "disrespectful enough" by offending that site's owners. I prefer to know what is the Vincent791's opinion.
Not at all. It's just I can't be held responsible for the lack of intelligence of some people. But I may understand why you try to defend your fiends who have an inflated sense of their own importance and it is more than a bit tedious to discuss with them subjects which go beyond their own a*s hole.

Even Vincent Darlage has considered many of their works were crap, especially a map of the Hyborian incontinent.

I'm only defending the Howard's essay posted in that site, nothing else. And I don't see "lack of intelligence" neither "an inflated sense of their own importance" in people who prefer the original version of a Howard's text, rather than a Roy Thomas' synopsis.

If I may get back to the subject...

Today I am preparing a special text version of the Hyborian Age essay based on the version from the DelRey edition (ISBN 0-345-46151-7) assuming that is to be considered authoritative. Perhaps in the future this could evolve into a textual-critical edition of the essay for future reference.
I will try to have it up on my website by the end of today (US Central Time), Crom willing.

I used Thulsa's Xoth site version for creation of the pre-Aquilonian/pre-Hyborian age maps.

I hope it is accurate.

The version in the DR edition is certainly the most authoritative.

Is it just me or does the "Arus-Gorm" section (paragraphs 32.0 to 54.0 by my numbering system) stand out as unusual? REH shows us a sweeping panorama, only to grind to a standstill by focusing on a naive Nemedian missionary and a thick-skulled Pict. It is almost like REH inserted a separate story-fragment into a grander work. Maybe I'm just crazy. :shock: :lol:
