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