Spear and Fang - 3/5. A decent stone-age fantasy story. These are two fine short stories by the brilliant Robert E. Howard.

Spear and Fang - 3/5. A girl gets abducted by a beast-man, a strong warrior fights the kidnapper to the death and gets her back. Not spectacular, but a nice example of early sword and sorcery. Rudy rated it really liked it Nov 23, 2015.

Robert E. Howard, "The People of the Black Circle" (1934). Many of the books in Howard's collection were about the subject of the American frontier and he wrote, in a 1933 letter to Derleth, that for him, "frontier days were yesterday. Even Howard's non-Western stories nevertheless draw heavily on the traditions and style of Western fiction. Sam Lundwall wrote in Science Fiction: What It's All. About (1971) that Howard's fiction was "a kind of Wild West in the never-never lands of unbridled fantasy. Howard is one of the most famous and influential pulp authors of the twentieth century. This volume includes the last Conan story written by REH, Red nails, a dark and bloody tale of destruction. Though largely known as the man who invented the sword-and-sorcery genre-and for his iconic hero Conan the Cimmerian-Howard also wrote horror tales, desert adventures, detective yarns, epic poetry, and more. Also included are a number of other great stories of horror and fantasy, along with some of REH's weird poetic verse.

This page needs more information! "Spear and Fang" is the first episode of Primal. Tragedy forces a caveman and a dinosaur to rely upon each other for their survival. A test glimpse of the episode first premiered at Annecy Film Festival 2019. The title, like the main characters, is an homage to the Robert E. Howard short story, Spear and fang.

People of the Dark' is a fantasy story that is now considered to be part of the famous Cthulhu Mythos. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard – a bookish and somewhat introverted child – was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a g during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago.

Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936) was an American pulp writer of fantasy . In my case I cannot wait for "Volume 3 - People of the Dark" to be published.

Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936) was an American pulp writer of fantasy, horror, historical adventure, boxing, western, and detective fiction. He is well known for having created the character Conan the Cimmerian, a literary icon whose pop-culture imprint can be compared to such icons as Tarzan of the Apes, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond.

Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre. Howard was born and raised in Texas. He spent most of his life in the town of Cross Plains, with some time spent in nearby Brownwood.

A-aea crouched close to the cave mouth, watching Ga-nor with wondering eyes. Ga-nor's occupation interested her, as well as Ga-nor himself. As for Ga-nor, he was too occupied with his work to notice her. A torch stuck in a niche in the cave wall dimly illuminated the roomy cavern, and by its light Ga-nor was laboriously tracing figures on the wall. With a piece of flint he scratched the outline and then with a twig dipped in ocher paint completed the figure

Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936) was an American pulp writer of fantasy, horror, historical adventure, boxing, western, and detective fiction. He is well known for having created the character Conan the Cimmerian, a literary icon whose pop-culture imprint can be compared to such icons as Tarzan of the Apes, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond. Voracious reading, along with a natural talent for prose writing and the encouragement of teachers, conspired to create in Howard an interest in becoming a professional writer. One by one he discovered the authors that would influence his later work: Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. It's clear from Howard's earliest writings and the recollections of his friends that he suffered from severe depression from an early age. Friends recall him defending the act of suicide as a valid alternative as early as eighteen years old, while many of his stories and poems have a suicidal gloom and intensity that seem prescient in hindsight, describing such an end not as a tragedy but as a release from hell on earth.

If you like old school sword and board fantasy this is the man you credit. Yes, he invented Conan, but he also had other heroes from other continuities, and some of those stories are presented here. Also included are some Lovecraft style ancient gods type stories that combine the pulpyness of Howard's normal style with Lovecraft. Worth a purchase.

This third volume in the series comes with beautiful cover art by Stephen Fabian and nine superb short stories (plus two poems) by the master of heroic fantasy. Every tale in the book is a great read, several of these being Lovecraft inspired, and there are fascinating characters: Cormac of Connacht, Solomon Kane, Black Turlogh, and Athelstane. I highly recommend it, and expect this series to only get better.

More Cthulhu work, and a Bran Mak Morn/Kull crossover, and one Solomon Kane story.

A Cthulhoid type venture. Not somewhere you want to be. Fairly proficiently done.

3.5 out of 5

Anthropological arguments and reminiscences over Cthulhu cults.

Turlogh Dubh O'Brien gets some inspiration from Bran Mak Morn in beach side battle.

Kane is following a band of slavers, and is unable to help himself when he sees them stop and start to whip a girl to death. Despatching many, he is overcome by the dozens of others, and forced to march as a slave.

A nasty supernatural end awaits his captors, where his possession of the Bast-headed staff of N'Longa in the past is no bad thing.

3.5 out of 5

Swords in the storm, serpent ships, swimming with sharks, and a sheila scheming with religion.

If an old priest tells you that the body in the tomb is an undead Spanish nobleman, and you happen to be a credulous cowboy, next time, believe him!

Bran Mak Morn has leadership problems. Wulfhere's Northerners will not follow him, or Cormac, prince of Erin, they demand a King. Consulting with Gonar, who talks to his ancestor in Kull's time, and summons Kull, King of Valusia! Kull likes Bran, as he reminds him of Brule, and agrees to lead the Northerners. Wulfhere challenges him to combat. Big mistake for Wulfhere.

With Kull's help, Bran manages to hold the Romans for now, at some significant cost.

"I came to Dagon's Cave to kill Richard Brent." 10 out of 10 for courage, minus several million for common sense. Luckily, there is a bit of reincarnated presence ancient barbarian named Conan and other action here so not everybody dies.

A book collector acquires a copy of Nameless Cults. It motivates the man he got it for to go back to th temple of the Toad God.

The amulet he acquires there has very unfortunate consequences.

Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) was and is still the best story teller wordsmith of action, adventure, horror, and more of all time! The Weird Works is some of REH's best stuff! My favorite in this book is Queen of the Black Coast that has Belit who is Conan's true love. Belit is the first woman Conan stayed faithful with up until her ____. The poem To A Woman ("Though fathoms...") Moder American Poetry Galleon Press, 1933 is really creepy. Just the way I like um! REH was a genius. Must reads of his:
The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Hunt, all Weird Works by Paul Herman, Blood & Thunder by Mark Finn, Selected Letters Vol 1-3 and Poetry by Rob Roehm, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Ellis REH's girlfriend, The Black Stranger, Lord Samarcand, Dark Horse comics Solomon Kane, Kull, All Conans, Bran Mak Morn, Cormac Mac Art, Two Gun Bob and all REH stories. My favorite is The Beast from the Abyss about cats. You can find this on REH websites. It's a real treat. Tell others about REH and keep visiting your local bookstores. I found some really inexpensive and out of print books of REH at some local Used Book Stores. MUST READ - Two Gun Bob! Superb insight into REH's mind and stories. Neat factoid, REH had only visit the sea shore once in his life! Get Two Gun Bob before it's gone! Check out the REH Foundation and Forum!

This collection of stories by the illustrious author of Conan and Brak Mak Morn, Solomon Kane, and legendary others, takes readers into the golden age of sword & sorcery that was written better back in the day.

Written grammatically correct in Old English that past authors like Edgar Rice Buroughs and Howard made this a refreshing reading experience that takes one back to yesteryear of high end adventure fantasy.

A must read for Conan fans.
