In this weeks episode I will be covering the Sword Women of Robert E. Howard & C.L. Moore, and their connection to the comic book character of Red Sonja. I think this is one of the best examples of how classic pulp characters are still influencing fiction today.

I've wanted to do this episode for a few years now, it was just a matter of reading all of the pulp tales with these ladies in them. I will discuss each of the 4 red haired Sword Women, in the order of their creation.
