Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been wanting a collection of this magnitude for years. I'm not to keen Howard's "Sword and Sorcery" stories so I welcomed this collection with open arms. Readers should judge this book not by what should have ben included but by the brilliance of the writing of stories from the heyday of weird fiction.
Howard's prose is vivid and never boring and the variety of subject matter will be enough to satisfy the most avid of those who love this type of fiction.
Highly recommended for those unfamiliar with Robert E Howard. Stand by to be scared.
