The Coming Of Conan Of Cimmeria will be released in hardcover by Del Rey.
Originally available only in a $200 limited edition format, this new edition will feature Howard's earliest short stories, and artwork by Mark Schultz.
When publisher Del Rey released it in trade paperback, they printed the color plates in black and white, and for the hardcover they're restoring them to full color.
Some of the most famous of the stories that will appear are "The Phoenix on the Sword," "The Tower of the Elephant," "Queen of the Black Coast," "Black Colossus," and "The Devil in Iron."
The edition also features various synopses by Howard, including the first submitted draft for the first Conan story, "The Phoenix on the Sword," and Howard's own hand-drawn map of the Hyborian world.
The release date for this hardcover is 22nd November 2005, a week before their release for The Conquering Sword Of Conan, the third and final trade paperback edition in the complete Robert E. Howard Conan adventures.
