I was just saying the other day that I wished someone would collect Lin Carter's half dozen short stories about Thongor the Barbarian. I always felt that those stories were some of Carter's better work, and I always preferred them to the Thongor novels. Well my wish has been granted. Wildside Books has just published Young Thongor, which has all six of Carter's stories plus some pastiches by other hands. Since Thongor is basically a Conan pastiche, with elements of Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars books thrown in, it's kind of interesting to have pastiches of pastiches.
Anyway, more on that when my copy arrives. You can buy it directly from Wildside of get it at Amazon. Available for the Kindle too, but I want a print copy of this one. That reminds me that I haven't blogged about my Lin Carter collection in a long time. Need to get around to that.
