I think the major problem with these pastiches is that, though every writer thinks he "knows" Conan, he doesn't usually take into account how his personality matures over the years. Howard had an ever changing Conan molded by his years of experience, and he didn't even write them in chronological order(!). The pastiche writers too often have a young Conan in his thief years or some such basically thinking like, say, the older Conan of the mercenary leader years. Occassionally, he seems most UNConan-like (I avoided "Conan the Gladiator" where he becomes, by all accounts, a pacifist, and "Conan the Hero" where he apparently fights the Vietnam War).
Roberts seems to have a good handle on the character, however. "Conan the Champion" has been my favorite, so far. It features a young Conan and this story probably takes place not too many years after the events depicted in "the Frost Giant's Daughter". Maddox draws him at a stage where his naivete from "Tower of the Elephant" has lost its edge, but has developed into a slight over-confidence that's about to get a beating.Read more ›
