I got so bored with A Room with a View that I decided to try something else for a bit. This was that something else, and it was pretty horrible. I'm sure some folks like this kind of stuff, but war making, brutal revenge killing, people covering themselves with gore as a sign of manliness, and so f...

This my first stab at Howard, of Conan fame, and I don't know how to rate it, or if I'll ever read something by him again. In favor it has the fact that it has no compunctions about pulling in elements from any source, and mimic any style to flavor and serve the current story. Makes for diverse se...

Typical Conan fare with loads of florid description and bloody action with strange mystical creatures and Conan bravura. A relatively short novella with a mere 5 chapters so a good stop-gap between longer books.It's wonderful stuff - if you enjoy pulp fiction.

You can never go wrong with Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. I have read these stories numerous times and every time I get completely lost in them. These stories have blood and guts fights and grand battles, damsels in distress, pirates, thieves, assasins, sorcerers with dark magic and supernatural...

The Conan stories by Robert E. Howard are some of the best you will ever read. It is such a shame the Howard died at such an early age. I would love to have seen where he would have taken Conan.I can't recommend these story highly enough!!

A good selection of Conan stories put into chronological order to show him maturing.Contains 18 stories, plus Howard's essay regarding the Hyborian Age.After a few stories, it's a bit of a blur as to which wench he's "saving" or which tribe/group he's becoming the leader of.Possibly fewer stories in...

This is an anthology of short stories written by Robert E. Howard in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Most of the stories are fantasy, with a couple of exceptions. For example, there is a very odd but rather funny western-type story at the end. A couple of Howard’s original Conan the Barbarian stories are als...

My long nightmare is over. I've finished this truly awful book. I think it's time for a dose of something more girly, perhaps the one Jane Austen I've not re-read over the past three or four years.Esau Cairn is basically a brute, someone who is strong as an ox and also someone who has no self contro...
