    4.0 stars An excellent collection of Conan stories by Robert E Howard This is classic pulp sword and sorcery at its best and done by the master himself Of the four stories in this collection, my favorites were The Slithering Shadow aka Xuthal of the Dusk and The Pool of the Black One , both of which have a very Lovecraftian feel to me especially Slithering Shadow which features an Elder God right out of the Cthulhu mythos The descriptions are vivid and exotic and the plots are dense 4.0 stars An excellent collection of Conan stories by Robert E Howard This is classic pulp sword and sorcery at its best and done by the master himself Of the four stories in this collection, my favorites were The Slithering Shadow aka Xuthal of the Dusk and The Pool of the Black One , both of which have a very Lovecraftian feel to me especial...

    Some Conan stories edited by L Sprague de Camp It s not bad but many of the stories would have been better without the editing The Frazetta cover is one of the best on the Conan series, though.
