Product description


"Lamb was an expert plotter. His forward with the velocity of galloping horsemen. Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan, viewed them as models...Like a burial mound's hidden hoard of treasure, they lay undisturbed, awaiting their rediscovery by Mr. Jones and now a growing band of admirers." --JOHN J. MILLER, The Wall Street Journal, 26th Aug 2009


“Lamb knew how to write straight-ahead adventure the way Michelangelo knew how to paint.”―S. M. Stirling
(S. M. Stirling)

"Rest assured that every single solitary tale within the covers of Swords From the West is worth reading."―Deuce Richardson, Cimmerian
(Deuce Richardson Cimmerian)

"As a young writer and history buff, I loved Harold Lamb, and this reprinting of the seventeen so-called "Crusader stories" from Adventure Magazine reminded me why. . . . His imagination, his gifts of plot and action writing, and his passion for worlds and peoples not white, not western and not like us, make the book a delight to read."―Cecelia Holland, Historical Novels Review
(Cecelia Holland Historical Novels Review)
