    So a friend of mine asked me recently if I had heard of any novels from the POV of the Picts. Nothing came to mind. Has anyone here read or heard of a novel like this?

    Nope, all I did manage to find out that they disappeared mysteriously.Some percentage of the Scottish men are descendants of theirs, but that's about it. Apologies. Even I'd like to read such a novel if anyone happens to find one.

    Bran Mak Morn.
    Not sure if Howard ever wrote an entire novel, but he did short stories. And I think Roy Thomas brought it to comic books--never as an independent title, but part of something else. Maybe those Giant Size comics from the early 70s?

    That would be 'Worms of the Earth.' I believe he adapted it into a Conan story.

    I distinctly remember Bran Mak Morn. Maybe it was a black-and-white? Memory dims like a setting sun.

    Unfortunately, I lost my entire comic collection to a flood in '93 so I can't corroborate one way or the other. But the original story was indeed one of the Bran Mak Morn tales.
