âHowardâs writing seems so highly charged with energy that it nearly gives off sparks.â
The classic pulp magazines of the early twentieth century are long gone, but their action-packed tales live on through the work of legendary storyteller Robert E. Howard. From his fecund imagination sprang an army of larger-than-life heroesâincluding the iconic Conan the Cimmerian, King Kull of Atlantis, Solomon Kane, and Bran Mak Mornâas well as adventures that would define a genre for generations. Now comes the second volume of this authorâs breathtaking short fiction, which runs the gamut from sword and sorcery, historical epic, and seafaring pirate adventure to two-fisted crime and intrigue, ghoulish horror, and rip-roaring western.
Kull reigns supreme in âBy This Axe I Rule!â and âThe Mirrors of Tuzan Thuneâ; Conan conquers in one of his most popular exploits, âThe Tower of the Elephantâ; Solomon Kane battles demons deep in Africa in âWings in the Nightâ; and itinerant boxer Steve Costigan puts up his dukes of steel inside and outside the ring in âThe Bulldog Breed.â In between, warrior kings, daring knights, sinister masterminds, grizzled frontiersmenâeven Howardâs stunning heroine, Red Sonyaâtear up the pages in stories built to thrill by their masterly creator.
And in such epic poems as âEchoes from an Anvil,â âBlack Harps in the Hills,â and âThe Grim Land,â the author blends his classic characters and visceral imagery with a lyricism as haunting as traditional folk balladry. Lavishly illustrated by Jim and Ruth Keegan, here is a Robert E. Howard collection as indispensable as it is unforgettable.
âHoward had a gritty, vibrant styleâbroadsword writing that cut its way to the heart, with heroes who are truly larger than life.â
âFor stark, living fear . . . What other writer is even in the running with Robert E. Howard?â
âH. P. Lovecraft
