Book Overview

Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan, takes readers to Almuric, a savage planet of crumbling stone ruins and debased, near-human inhabitants. Into this world comes Esau Cairn--Earthman, swordsman, murderer. Only he can overthrow the terrible devils that enslave Almuric, but to do so he must first defeat the inner demons that forced him to abandon Earth.

The action never lets up!

The action starts early and about a third of the way through ramps to a fevered pace that never lets up as the hero is thrust into one bone-crushing, head splitting adventure after another. Almuric is a pageturner chock full of well crafted action, which alone makes it worthwhile, but what makes it memorable is the rich detail of the strange world and the powerful themes of life and living. At 155 pages it's a quick read and one you'll find hard to put down. A shame REH didn't live to write more stories from this great universe.

Refreshing and fun

After many years of neglecting my decades old pulp addiction, Almuric arrived on my doorstep. I was halfway through a different book, but I put it down to read this one in two days. What a refreshment! Howard's visions are just a blast to read. Mighty thews, lopping of the heads of your depraved enemies while seducing the ivory skinned fair maidens of an alien planet....this book is just plain FUN!

Great Book

This is a great story. The plot is excellent and the climax is really gripping. The imagery REH uses is really awesome. He has a lot of good stories and this one is one of his finest.

Quickest read I ever had!

Almuric is one of the best fantasy stories ever written by Robert E. Howard. It is also one of the few full length fantasy novels he wrote, most of his stories were shorts for pulp magazines of his time.The story is set on a distant world, Almuric, where a human from earth takes refuge. He braves the hardships of this new world and has many dealings with its peoples and races. At around 250 pages, I recommend all lovers of fantasy to pick this one up!
