The Conan Chronicles: Volume 2: The Hour of the Dragon (Fantasy Masterworks, #16) - Robert E. Howard

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 beasts..... what more could you want! Highly recommended!!

Three Hearts and Three Lions (Fantasy Masterworks 38)
Three Hearts and Three Lions (Fantasy Masterworks 38) - Poul Anderson An early work of modern fantasy fiction. Unlike most current fantasy novels instead of going on interminably, it ends abruptly.

The book is good but fairly forgettable. It is most interesting for the significant effect it had on Dungeons and Dragons. It was responsible for the early alignment system, the troll's stats and the spell unseen servant amongst other things.

It reminds me in tone a little of A Princess of Mars.

Darker Than You Think (Fantasy Masterworks)
Darker Than You Think (Fantasy Masterworks) - Jack Williamson A story about a man and a werewolf and his descent into madness or werewolf. It's interesting but it's really not my kind of thing. I didn't really get any connection with the characters and almost stopped reading in the middle due to this lack of interest. It was interesting to compare some of the more modern stories and it does look like they do owe a lot to this story. It's part of the canon but won't remain part of my library.
