Excellent show, guys! Thanks for helping me get through a rather tedious day (dozens and dozens of isometric terrain tiles, blech). It's great to hear that Golden Goblin is doing so well right out of the gates and that there's a lot of cool projects waiting in the wings. If Oscar's ever looking for additional art help I may know someone who's got a hankering for creating some mythos art... ;)

In case you didn't get the email and are still looking for a room at Necronomicon, the con has created a new forum in part to allow attendees to coordinate their plans.

Hi, guys. I really enjoyed the conversation with Oscar Rios, but I was sorry that the discussion of the Mythos works of Robert E. Howard was shorter than I would have liked.

For those interested in these works, the best collection to date is Chaosium's Nameless Cults, now out of print but still available through various retailers. You can see the contents on http://www.yog-sothoth.com/wiki/index.p ... fiction%29. Most of the stories from the old Baen collection which Oscar and Jon remembered are in it, but the Baen PB had some non-Mythos (but still good) horror tales as well, such as the excellent "Pigeons from Hell".

Luckily, most of the stories in Nameless Cults are also in the more reasonably priced collection, The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard. Missing are those fragments which were finished by others, the novel "Skull-Face", the weird menace story "The Black Bear Bites", and the greatest loss, "The Gods of Bal-Sagoth", which mentions Gol-Goroth, whose name Oscar uses on the YSDC forums. "Skull-Face" and "Bal-Sagoth" (along with other REH stories) are out of copyright in Australia and so appear on gutenberg.net.au.

Other REH stories perhaps not considered to be Mythos by anyone but me include the Conan tale "The Tower of the Elephant" (surely Yag-kosha is related to Chaugnar Faugn), "The Dwellers under the Tombs" (ghouls), "The Haunter of the Ring" (uses Thoth-Amon's ring from "The Phoenix on the Sword", which is also Mythos in my book), the Solomon Kane story "The Moon of Skulls", and the fragment "The Isle of the Eons". By extension, most of Howard's heroic characters end up being connected to the Mythos.

I also engaged in speculation as to "Who Was Worshipped at the Black Stone?" on YSDC, but a fuller version may be found at http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~cje/mythos/BlackStone.html.

Welcome. Good stuff. Thanks for enriching my perspective of his works. Cheers!

A nice podcast. It was nice to hear Oscar in action since I recently added him to my Facebook (the only real social media that I use besides Goodreads).
