About the book
Here are Howard’s greatest horror tales, all in their original, definitive versions. Some of Howard’s best-known characters–Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and sailor Steve Costigan among them–roam the forbidding locales of the author’s fevered imagination, from the swamps and bayous of the Deep South to the fiend-haunted woods outside Paris to remote jungles in Africa.The collection includes Howard’s masterpiece “Pigeons from Hell,” which Stephen King calls “one of the finest horror stories of [the twentieth] century,” a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation–and into the maw of its fatal secret. In “Black Canaan” even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers–and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. In these and other lavishly illustrated classics, such as the revenge nightmare “Worms of the Earth” and “The Cairn on the Headland,” Howard spins tales of unrelenting terror, the legacy of one of the world’s great masters of the macabre.From the Trade Paperback edition.read more
Growing up, I owned a short collection (6 stories) of Robert E Howard. I thoroughly enjoyed those stories. Over the years, wherever I lived, I would check the local library to see if they had any of his horror story collections. Alas, they only had his fantasy stories.Finally, this book came out and I bought it.I must confess I was a little disappointed. Most of the stories, on their own, are quite good. However, the themes and style are quite repetitive. If you've read a select few stories, the rest will be similar.read more
