Is it wrong that reading The de Camp Controversy: Part 8 and The de Camp Controversy: Part 9 by Morgan Holmes over at The Robert E. Howard United Press Association made me want to read Lin Carter's Thongor books?

For those with the time and inclination, the de Camp Controversy posts are quite a good read in their entirety: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, The Spell of Six Plus One by Mark Finn, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Living at home by Rusty Burke, Part 9, Conan the Avenger, Part 10 [Conan the Clueless by Richard Toogood, Part 11, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14, Part 15 and Part 16 - Conclusion].

Presumably those more sane than I will be inclined instead to read (or re-read) some of the Robert E. Howard Conan books after reading that.

For whatever it's worth, "Gaylord the Dudefucker" is indeed edged out for "Gayest Sounding Barbarian Name" only by "Thongor". This has no effect, either way, on my desire to read the books.
