A Cowboy in Carpathia by Teel James Glenn is one odd beast. Basically, it starts off as a work of alternative history — in this reality Robert E. Howard, creator of such pulp characters as Conan and Solomon Kane, did not commit suicide after the death of his mother. Rather, he decides to honor her memory by exploring the world and continuing to write his stories. What follows is bizarre, humorous, and strangely thought-provoking: Bob Howard fights Dracula.

Yep, you read that right. Conan’s creator ends up hanging out with the Harker family from Bram Stoker’s classic novel and then ends up exchanging fisticuffs with the vampire lord himself. It’s a lot of fun and makes me hopeful that we’ll get many more adventures of Bob Howard — personally, I hope a sequel lets him pay a visit to his buddy “Howie” Lovecraft. Highly recommended to pulp lovers everywhere.
