This was an interesting read. I know I've found it late but I just wanted to share...

I'm far from a white man. I'm an Indian living in Fiji and I am a massive Conan fan. I have never read Conan as being a raciest. Whatever faults Howard might have had as a man, which I feel would have been as a result of his time and place, whatever these faults... they never spoilt a Conan story for me.

By your reasoning, we would be excluding so many great writers because, as a result of their time period they would be terrible people by today's standards.

Would I feel the same way if one of todays better writers was exposed as a raciest or a homophobe? No, of course not, because by today's standards that's just not on.

BUT Howard is a product of his time. BUT his writings to me are timeless.
