Book Description:
Robert E. Howard is one of the most famous and influential pulp authors of the twentieth century. Though largely known as the man who invented the sword and sorcery genre and for his iconic hero Conan the Cimmerian Howard also wrote horror tales, desert adventures, detective yarns, epic poetry, and more. This spectacular volume, gorgeously illustrated by Jim and Ruth Keegan, includes some of his best and most popular works.

Inside, readers will discover (or rediscover) such gems as The Shadow Kingdom, featuring Kull of Atlantis and considered by many to be the first sword and sorcery story; The Fightin est Pair, part of one of Howard s most successful series, chronicling the travails of Steve Costigan, a merchant seaman with fists of steel and a head of wood; The Grey God Passes, a haunting tale about the passing of an age, told against the backdrop of Irish history and legend; Worms of the Earth, a brooding narrative featuring Bran Mak Morn, about which H. P. Lovecraft said, Few readers will ever forget the hideous and compelling power of this macabre masterpiece ; a historical poem relating a momentous battle between Cimbri and the legions of Rome; and Sharp s Gun Serenade, one of the last and funniest of the Breckinridge Elkins tales.

These thrilling, eerie, compelling, swashbuckling stories and poems have been restored to their original form, presented just as the author intended. There is little doubt that after more than seven decades the voice of Robert E. Howard continues to resonate with readers around the world.
