Paradox Buys Rest of Howard’s characters

Paradox Entertainment, which owns literary rights to Robert E. Howard’s “Conan” character, has purchased the rest of the pulp-fiction writer’s library, some 800 other literary properties.

Among the characters Paradox now controls are Kull, Bran Mak Morn, Solomon Kane and Red Sonya. Howard published most of his stories in pulp magazines including Weird Tales, Spicy Adventure and Strange Detective in the 1920s and 1930s.

Paradox purchased “Conan” in 2002 and bought the rest of the library from the Texas-based Alla Ray Morris Generation Skipping Exemption Trust.

Paradox hopes to license its new literary properties for film, TV, video games, comics, toys and other areas.
