The Book of Robert E Howard Book 1 Download ê 100 From the mighty pen that created Conan Kull and Cormac comes this sweeping collection of stories of sword and sorcery; trembling tales of horror; fantasies so weird they defy description Here is some of Howard's best workContentsIntroduction by Glenn LordPigeons From. Much like The Second Book of Robert E Howard which I read first this was well worth the read It s another Glenn Lord edited Zebra collection with Jeff Jones art full of stuff that hadn t been put in collections yet at that time A major advantage to that is the broad variety of genres on display here unlike most Howard collections which focus on the sword and sorcery with some horror and general adventure tossed on to pad things out This one has got historical romance boxing stories comedic westerns weird menace detective stuff and some weird variations There s even a bizarro historical thing called Etchings in Ivory that was unexpected to say the least The prologue is up front about the lack of Conan and Solomon Kane stories which I think is a good thing since those have been printed ad nauseum There is a Kull story although Kull isn t really in it There are also poems Tons of poems In general I m not too crazy for poems but a couple of the ones here were actually pretty sweet in that they sounded exactly like metal lyrics Hell one of them I sang to myself like Bruce Dickinson and it was awesome Robert E Howard wrote a lot he pretty much shat stories and he made a living at it Because of this he did repeat himself a tad and my only real issue with his writing is that sometimes I m not sure which of his stuff I have and haven t read Titles change and setting and characters get hard to tell apart sometimes With the weird menace stories I pop into the story at night in the country among the pines where a muscled guy who is uick to anger encounters an evil of some form or another and I think where have I seen this before Of course it s all fun for me in spite of that so I keep coming back Genghis Khan appears in one story there s also a pirate spicy adventure a Pike Bearfield story in the form of a letter and some supernatural horror Highlights include The Voice of El Lil Black Talons Pigeons from Hell and Etchings in Ivory The whole book was thoroughly awesome and you should read it

The Book Of Robert E Howard is a real treat Published in 1976 it collects several stories and poems that hadn t seen publication in decadesThe selection of stories is outstanding and represents several of the genres outside the sword and sorcery Howard is so well known for Right out the gate you get the superb weird tale Pigeons From Hell one of the creepiest stories Howard ever wrote Also present is the wonderful somewhat Poe esue The Curse Of The Golden Skull You get a high action sport story in The Pit Of The Serpent a detective story in Black Talons a little humorous tall tale action in Gents On The Lynch and a straight western Knife Bullet And Noose In an attempt to make a living as a writer Howard tried his hand at many kinds of stories If not for this financial incentive we may well have never even heard of Robert E Howard who would have been an unknown writing historical fiction While I would have loved to see Conan stories from him this rich variety adds much to Howard s appealI m also impressed by his poetry He s really uite good in my humble opinion carefully crafting his verses for proper meter and choosing his wording for maximum impactReally if anything sets Howard apart from his pulp fiction peers it s his outstanding writing ability Yes his characters are bigger than life but that alone wouldn t carry these stories Howard had a talent for storytelling that transcends any genre his stories might fit in While many dismiss him as a writer I would put him on par with any of the classic US authors In fact I d rather read Howard at his worst than that wretched Faulkner at his bestGlenn Lord s introduction doesn t cover a lot of new ground but his short introductions to each story are interesting The Book of Robert E Howard is a fantastic starting point for anyone interested in Howard s work It s also a great jumping off point for anyone familiar with Howard s Conan stories and wanting to see what else Howard has to offer Even longtime Howard fans will enjoy this because it s such a fine collection of stories
