Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) was and is still the best story teller wordsmith of action, adventure, horror, and more of all time! The Weird Works is some of REH's best stuff! My favorite in this book is Queen of the Black Coast that has Belit who is Conan's true love. Belit is the first woman Conan stayed faithful with up until her ____. The poem To A Woman ("Though fathoms...") Moder American Poetry Galleon Press, 1933 is really creepy. Just the way I like um! REH was a genius. Must reads of his: The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Hunt, all Weird Works by Paul Herman, Blood & Thunder by Mark Finn, Selected Letters Vol 1-3 and Poetry by Rob Roehm, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Ellis REH's girlfriend, The Black Stranger, Lord Samarcand, Dark Horse comics Solomon Kane, Kull, All Conans, Bran Mak Morn, Cormac Mac Art, Two Gun Bob and all REH stories. My favorite is The Beast from the Abyss about cats. You can find this on REH websites. It's a real treat. Tell others about REH and keep visiting your local bookstores. I found some really inexpensive and out of print books of REH at some local Used Book Stores. MUST READ - Two Gun Bob! Superb insight into REH's mind and stories. Neat factoid, REH had only visit the sea shore once in his life! Get Two Gun Bob before it's gone! Check out the REH Foundation and Forum!

Howard's Dark Read!

This collection of stories by the illustrious author of Conan and Brak Mak Morn, Solomon Kane, and legendary others, takes readers into the golden age of sword & sorcery that was written better back in the day. Written grammatically correct in Old English that past authors like Edgar Rice Buroughs and Howard made this a refreshing reading experience that takes one back to yesteryear of high end adventure fantasy. A must read for Conan fans.

Howard Weird Works 3 : The Thing on the Roof - Robert E. Howard A Cthulhoid type venture. Not somewhere you want to be. Fairly proficiently done. 3.5 out of 5 Anthropological arguments and reminiscences over Cthulhu cults. 3 out of 5 Turlogh Dubh O'Brien gets some inspiration from Bran Mak Morn in beach side battle. 3.5 out of 5 Kane is following a band of slavers, and is unable to help himself when he sees them stop and start to whip a girl to death. Despatching many, he is overcome by the dozens of others, and forced to march as a slave. A nasty supernatural end awaits his captors, where his possession of the Bast-headed staff of N'Longa in the past is no bad thing. 3.5 out of 5 Swords in the storm, serpent ships, swimming with sharks, and a sheila scheming with religion. 3.5 out of 5 If an old priest tells you that the body in the tomb is an undead Spanish nobleman, and you happen to be a credulous cowboy, next time, believe him! 3.5 out of 5 Bran Mak Morn has leadership problems. Wulfhere's Northerners will not follow him, or Cormac, prince of Erin, they demand a King. Consulting with Gonar, who talks to his ancestor in Kull's time, and summons Kull, King of Valusia! Kull likes Bran, as he reminds him of Brule, and agrees to lead the Northerners. Wulfhere challenges him to combat. Big mistake for Wulfhere. With Kull's help, Bran manages to hold the Romans for now, at some significant cost. 4 out of 5 "I came to Dagon's Cave to kill Richard Brent." 10 out of 10 for courage, minus several million for common sense. Luckily, there is a bit of reincarnated presence ancient barbarian named Conan and other action here so not everybody dies. 4 out of 5 A book collector acquires a copy of Nameless Cults. It motivates the man he got it for to go back to th temple of the Toad God. The amulet he acquires there has very unfortunate consequences. 3 out of 5

An Excellent Series Continues

This third volume in the series comes with beautiful cover art by Stephen Fabian and nine superb short stories (plus two poems) by the master of heroic fantasy. Every tale in the book is a great read, several of these being Lovecraft inspired, and there are fascinating characters: Cormac of Connacht, Solomon Kane, Black Turlogh, and Athelstane. I highly recommend it, and expect this series to only get better.
