I haven't read any of Howard's genre fiction trite. But Conan is just a barbarian version of lord of the rings. I mean being genre automatically makes it awful in my book, but Conan is just a banal, pulpy, lamentable piece of trite.

I like to throw around the word genre and automatically denounce it without any explanation, its genre thats good enough. And i like the word trite, m'lady. LotR is just an Enid Blyton version of Conan. Being genre automatically makes it awful in my book, but LotR is just sappy, anorakish, boring piece of trite.
