The man just wrote some great fiction. Reading Kull, Kane and Bran Mak Morn for the first time and enjoyed them immensley, plus a couple of "cowboy" yarns( a little non-pc for some today)but none the less intense story telling. The Conan stories I've read and bought in other guises not (IMO)the best they could have picked but for the non-enlightened classics all the same.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Nov. 2009
Format: Paperback
Originally considered pulp fiction in the original time to which it appeared, the author, afflicted with depression sadly departed this life thinking he was a hack, yet years later we all applaud his creativity and the characters he created have lived longer than a number of comic book heroes who are critically claimed. Sadly we're still in a world where writing like this is overlooked. Yes it is dated, yes it has some content that may offend many modern sensibilities but the characters within are vivid. Many will associate the characters within as their celluloid alter ego's but this collection of tales gives a flavour of the author for all to try. A great offering from Penguin and a good way to give Howard's work a try to see this fantasy father figure in all his gory glory as his cast hack, slash and above all cleave their way into your imagination.

I've really enjoyed this book, very well written considering many think of Howard as a Pulp Fiction Hack.

Highly recommend it.

Not what I expected, but still good. I already had most of these stories, but from the description, I thought there would be some new material, including a fuller analysis of Howard. The introduction had some of that but not what I expected from the description.
