Description

Conan the Cimmerian: the boy-thief who became a mercenary, who fought and loved his way across fabled lands to become King of Aquilonia. Neither supernatural fiends nore demonic sorcery could oppose the barbarian warrior as he wielded his mighty sword and dispatched his enemies to a bloody doom on the battlefields of the legendary Hyborian age.

Collected together in one volume for the very first time, in chronological order, are Robert E. Howard's tales of the legendary hero, as fresh and atmospheric today as when they were first published in the pulp magazines of more than seventy years ago.

Compiled by and with a foreward and afterword by award-winning writer and editor Stephen Jones.

Review quote

The energy of the writing practically thrums off the page and often the sense of tension and unease invoked is genuinely unsettling. Read it, then use the weighty tome to smite your enemies, drive them before you and hear the lamentation of their women! -- Brian Williamson * STARBURST *

About Robert E. Howard

Robert Erwin Howard was born and raised in rural Texas, the son of a pioneer physician. He began writing professionally at the age of fifteen and until his tragic death at the age of thirty turned out dozens of tales of heroic and supernatural fantasy that won him a huge audience across the world and influenced a whole generation of writers, from Robert Jordan to Raymond E. Feist.

Fantastic book, with a fantastic content.show more
by Baptiste VIALLON
I loved this. As a big fan of fantasy writing, it's good to get down to the roots and read some of the original works from all those years ago. Now, obviously, if you're not a fan of Fantasy, you probably won't love E.Howard's work the way I did. Also, keep in mind that these stories were written in the early to mid 30's: Although Howard isn't overtly racist or sexist, his books would be considered such if they were written in today's society. All-in-all, however, this is a wonderful collection of epic tales, and a must for any fan of Fantasy or Conan the Barbarian.show more
