* The Valley of the Worm * (1934) * Robert E. Howard (3 stars)
* The Ghastly Pond * (1983) * Jessica Amanda Salmonson (1 star)

A bland collection...I found none of the stories to be more worthier than 3 stars...none of them stand out, even the Leiber and Howard stories are some of their minor work. The story "The Warrior Race", didn't even have barbarians in it; it was a science fiction story taking place in the near future, after the Earth has been invaded...a puzzler as to why it was included.
Most of these stories were very predictable.

HASH(0x9676b708) out of 5 stars Good for the collection of fantasy. 24 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
So far the stories are good. However, I was hoping to get before the "PC" wave hit the paperback market, but the first story is about a WOMAN... One man's opinion but you buy a book with a big muscular barbarian, the women must be wenches, slave girls, dragon bait... Hrrrgggg! Time to put on the visigoth outfit and run around the back yard hacking at imaginary villagers! Hrrrggg!

But, no, I skimmed over the rest for a review and really good collection.
