    Back when I was a young fencing coach, I had an epiphany about how skill develops that has come to define the way I approach learning I d be working with students who might have been fencing for a few weeks or a few months when a new face would walk in I d put a sword in his hand and set him up against one of the others and, as often as not,

    This second volume of Robert E Howard s Conan stories contains three of the longest REH Conan stories published as well as some unpublished drafts and notes There are also some illustrations by Gary Gianni The Afterword Hyborean Genesis is an excellent biography of REH during the time these pieces were written, giving plenty of interesting background

    The Adventures of My Barbarian Paramour, Vol II Let s do this and stuff Thrilled to see you re as excited about this as I am, Cimmerian Cutie Pie Mine So there are only three stories in this collection Which is a complete joke compared to The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian and its thirteen delicious Barbarian tales More than a joke, it is quite the rip off, if

    I first read the great majority of the Conan stories a number of years ago I enjoyed them so much and quickly sought out other Robert E Howard writings The man has his weird quirks and sure, his stuff can be a little repetitive at times, but I would argue that in terms of pulp writers he was probably one of thediverse, being able to work in a variety of different genr

    The Hyborian age, where men were men, women were women, and giant snakes were giant snakes This collection contains a short story, a longer story, and the novel length The Hour of the Dragon I grew up on Conan pastiches, particularly the Tor editions It wasn t until I was a bit older that I read the original Howard stories and, let me tell you, nothing compares to these origin

    The Hour of the Dragon 5 5The Hour of the Dragon is worth five stars alone It combines all of the greatest elements from every other story in the Conan saga while excluding their flaws It s an adrenaline filled slugfest with nearly 200 pages worth of war, epic bloody battles and savage warriors against supernatural abominations The action was incredible and the characterization of Cona

    Contains The People of the Black Circle The Hour of the Dragon A Witch Shall Be Born This is the second volume of the original, unedited Howard versions of the Conan writings Like many Conan is one of my first introductions into fantasy and Conan personifies the Sword and Sorcery sub genre of fantasy He was great to read when Howard came up with him and he s still a great read today.

    This is the second of three books in Del Rey s collection of Howard s original Conan stories The first book in this set, The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian, would be a better place to start for anyone new to reading Conan, I think the shorter stories areaccessible in terms of getting into the character.In The People of the Black Circle, Conan attempts to use a princess as a bargaining chip for the return

    The second of the Conan anthologies presents Howard at the peak of his craft, featuring some of his long form work in a novella, a single short story, and Howard s only completed novel While Howard didn t write the Conan stories in anything like chronological order, the barbarian of these adventures is clearly older, cannier, andwise to the world than the young, thieving slayer of his earlier tales The opening a

    YES The Conan stories restored to their original texts Read Conan as Howard intended him to be You will find that Conan isthan just a big semi naked barbarian with a sword He speaks and reads many languages and thinks his way through a lot of what he encounters But then when that doesn t work he can swing a sword with the best of them Highly recommended
