    Ah here we go, the original author who started the Conan series was Robert Ervin Howard who was born in Texas in 1906 and committed suicide in 1936 at theage of 30. During his short life 18 Conan books were published but he left many unfinished works behind which were finished later by L.Sprague De Camp with the help also of a few others. ;)
