Summary (From the publisher):

The world of heroic fantasy suffered a tragic loss with the passing of Robert E. Howard. But "REH" left behind a vast body of work displaying a breadth of vision only to be expected from the creator of Conan the Barbarian and his fabled Hyborian Age. Lovingly and painstakingly collected over the years by editor Glenn Lord, these astonishing works were presented to the world in the magazine "The Howard Collector". Now the best of that collection appears here for the first time in book form. Here are many facets of Howard's glittering worlds:
  • Visions, Howard's view of hell.
  • Marching Song of Connacht, the battle-cry of a race of heroes.
  • The Beast from the Abyss, the truth behind the cat
  • Solomon Kane's Homecoming, the stirring return of the Puritan crusader.
And more... Now, you too can become a Howard Collector.
