Robert Ervin Howard

This man's work has influenced me in all aspects of my life. I own all the books in this Baen series, and, (although they are extremely hard to locate nowadays) I have succesfully completed the collection of the ORIGINAL Conan tales.High fantasy, wonderful imagination, and a lot of dark images. Not even the immortal Tolkien can match this man. He is the unquestioned god of fantasy.

Best of the Baen lot

I recently purchased several REH books published by Baen - Kull, Solomon Kane, Cormac Mac Art and Bran mak Morn. I am reading Bran at the moment, and enjoying it, - so this review may be a bit premature, but I enjoyed Cormac the best.Cormac is definitely in the mold of Conan et al, and the stories are immensely readable. There is a tangible excitement expressed here for a life of danger, plunder, and guile. For those moments that you are reading, you too are living a life of adventure!For rovers, these characters show a bit of chivalry and compassion. I enjoyed the repartee between Wulfhere and Cormac. Their relationship breathes a bit of life into what might otherwise be flat, mechanical characters. (Not that most readers of this genre expect character development.)I highly recommend the REH stories. The 4 stars are for the book overall - DD's story at the beginning suffers from violent, irrational, cardboard characters. It was a mistake on Baen's part to put his pastiche first...


Adventure on the high seas with Vikings and Irishmen. Cormac Mac Art is one of Howard's most dynamic heroes. He stands tall amongst other howardian creations such as Conan and Kull. If you like fast paced sword and sorcery with an historical flavor, this one's for YOU! Why the 9 rating? Well nobody is perfect, but Howard came awful close with this one. See you on the battlefield...
