The definitive collection of Conan stories, featuring the most distinctive and well known fantasy hero of all time.
This is the definitive collection of Conan stories, collected together for the first time and in chronological order as Howard wrote them, as fresh, atmospheric and vibrant today as when they were first published over sixty years ago. "A hero of mythic proportion, fashioned by a storyteller who helped define what a modern fantasy should be" (Raymond E. Feist)
Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) was born and raised in rural Texas, the son of a pioneer physician. He began writing professionally at the age of fifteen and turned out dozens of tales of heroic and supernatural fantasy, featuring many memorable creations - including the character he is best remembered for: Conan of Cimmeria. These stories, mostly published in Weird Tales, won him a huge audience across the world and influenced a whole generation of writers, from Robert Jordan to Raymond E. Feist. Sadly, Howard killed himself in June 1936 when he learned that his beloved mother had fallen into a coma.
