    People of the Black Circle 4 5Man, Robert knew how to start a visceral, bloody and blindingly fast fantasy adventure and keep consistent pace Nothing like a good adrenaline rush from beginning to end One of the best in the series yet Hour of the Dragon remains my favorite The Devil in Iron 3 5Not even close to the best, but simple Conan fun It feels like several of the older stories stitched together with a few unrealized new ideas Not bad, but feels uninspired and doesn t bring anything new to the expanding universe Just like Queen of the Black Coast, the villain doesn t offer much either A Witch Shall Be Born 4 5A queen is dethroned by her evil twin that was once thrown out into the desert and left to die because she was born with the mark of a witch The outcasted sister builds up her powerful magic and hatred over the years and turns it against the kingdom that left her to die The sister steals the queen s place on the throne and commits countless atrocities in her name Conan comes along to make the evil sister pay for her crimes and restore the glory of the true queen A thrilling tale of deception and sisterly betrayal I ended up feeling a bit sorry for the villain this time around, I can t blame her for hating a world that cursed her to such a tragic fate the moment she was born Salome is one of the most sympathetic villains in the entire Conan the Barbarian series Jewels of Gwahlur 3 5Conan battles his way through Gwahlur in search of ancient jewels and riches but ends up empty handed Although his original mission ended in failure, he got to experience the thrill of bloodshed and brought a girl that resembled a real goddess back home with him, so perhaps his journey for treasure wasn t a total waste after all Not the best of Conan, but still a fun and quick read.

    A Howard collectionone volume from 1977 I incorrectly referred to these 77 books as novels They are one volume Narratives But still good if you can find them.

    These Short Stories of Conan are so interesting The Author wrote so descriptive and made things so fluid I have read this book numerous times and never get tired of reading it

    Sword and sorcery with a large dash of horror, very dark Pulpy, but wonderfully entertaining.

    When the young king of Vendhya pleads with his sister, the Devi Yasmina, to end his irreversible ensorcellment and take his life, she tearfully does her grim duty Heeding his dying words and reading the Book of Skelos, she learns of those whose magic destroyed him, swearing her revenge on the enigmatic Black Seers of Mount Yimsha Traveling up into her kingdoms northern border to treat with the leader of the tribes around the Himelian mountains none other than Conan himself she plans to enlist the barbarian in her struggle, leading to his furthest flung adventure so far, where abduction, mesmerism and betrayal result as the fate of kingdoms hung in the balance The People of the Black Circle is also the longest of the Conan stories written by Howard up to this point, effectively twice the length He takes advantage of the additional room to introduce plot complications, add some depth in the supporting characters and linger fully on creating atmosphere and dread emanating from the magical elements.There is much to enjoy in the longer form, but unfortunately there is almost as much to regret Sure, each story usually contains at least one passage of excruciating prose, but the second part of this one was positively drenched in it, the juiciest example of which I think was this line She was a quivering atom of sentiency driven through a black, roaring, icy void by a thundering wind that threatened to extinguish her feeble flicker of animate life.I also suspect that Howard s pacing came a little unstuck over the longer distance for the first time how else can the eventual brevity of the final confrontation be explained Disappointments aside though, if you want a Big McConan meal with extra meat on the thews, served by the original chef, this is one of only a few places to find it so tuck in.

    This edition of People of the Black Circle came with a Frank Frazzetta poster on the inside cover I believe it is still there on my edition I bought back when My date on reading this is just an estimation I had read the story before that and after that as well This is probably the finest and most pure Conan story Plot is fast paced but understandable The action is believable but still heroic in scope and the dialogue is still compelling after decades Some of the lines have even made it into other works of adventure It is a classic I love the Oriental mysticism, martial arts yes it s in there and the fiery action This is not the Conan of the movies He s fallible and foolish sometimes and not the shirtless superman of later years This would actually make a great movie The story is a novella length but if I remember correctly it is in there with another story Well worth the price and if you can find it with the poster it is just a bonus.

    Robert E Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E Howard s stories I am a purist when it comes to a writers works I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period Don t read this book unless you just can t find any others of Howard s unedited books to read Message me if you need a list of what is good from this awesome fantasy and action writer.

    Extremely silly as always Conan and his band of bandits against 4 evil wizards But the story is entertaining, full of weirdo characters, whose crass motivations always revolve around either revenge or money And Conan himself is hilarious Like Beowulf, a constant braggart but a charming and intelligent one as well.

    having only read the L Sprague de Camp editions as a child, it was quite a surprise to find the books in this series, copied verbatim from the original Weird Tales issues If you are a genre, or Conan, fan, these are a must read, but be forewarned, they are of their time racially insensitive, violent, and unapologetic, but no worse than Burrough s original Tarzan stories.
