Offutt does Howard

51b9y98wpol-_sy346_A very quick heads-up – The Sign of the Moonbow, by fantasy legend Andrew J. Offutt, is free today in Kindle, and it’s well worth a read.
I’m planning a review ASAP, but I wanted to signal this offer while it still lasts (and I don’t know how long it will last, actually).
The Sign of the Moonbow is a story featuring Cormac Mac Art, one of Conan’s brethren, created by Robert E. Howard.
Offutt is enjoying (if that’s the word) a bout of new popularity due to the biography published by his son, in which his activity as a pornographer is described in lurid detail.
I never read any porn book by Offutt, but I read his fantasies – and the guy was a solid entertainer, with a certain sense of humor and a good pacing.
Check out The Sign of the Moonbow.
