So far, they've discussed Robert E. Howard and his Conan story "Red Nails," Poul Anderson and his novel Three Hearts & Three Lions, and Sterling Lanier's Hiero's Journey, which was one of the few books listed in Appendix N that I was completely unfamiliar with (based on the blog post, I immediately ordered a used copy off of Amazon).
