Read full description of the books Conan the Freebooter:The best of the Conan Collections! Tons of swordplay and Romance!
What a lot of people don't know is that Robert E. Howard only wrote a handful of CONANS before dying young. Friends and not-so-much friends soon "hijacked" Conan to write their own tales. But the original is still the greatest!
This volume has some of the best ORIGINAL Conan stories ever written. What's really amazing is not just the swordplay but the romance. If you read SHADOWS IN THE MOONLIGHT it's all from the slave girl's perspective, and Howard actually does a good job developing a compelling romance between her and Conan. And in A WITCH SHALL BE BORN the battling twin sisters are both very sexy and well drawn!
If you only read one original CONAN collection, read this!
Read information about the authorRobert Ervin Howard was an American pulp writer of fantasy, horror, historical adventure, boxing, western, and detective fiction. Howard wrote "over three-hundred stories and seven-hundred poems of raw power and unbridled emotion" and is especially noted for his memorable depictions of "a sombre universe of swashbuckling adventure and darkling horror."
He is well known for having created — in the pages of the legendary Depression-era pulp magazine Weird Tales — the character Conan the Cimmerian, a.k.a. Conan the Barbarian, a literary icon whose pop-culture imprint can only be compared to such icons as Tarzan of the Apes, Count Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond.
