(From the publisher):
Its European discoverers called the American continent the "New World," pitifully unaware of the ancient evils lurking there, their prehistoric origins antedating even the arrival of the Indians, whose legends warn of accursed places where hidden dwellers wait for human prey. And from the Old World trailed evils equally ancient and loathsome to threaten men's souls and sanity.
In the open sunlit stretches of the American west, a fugitive desperado stumbles upon a lightless underground realm inhabited by creatures out of a nightmare. Another gunfighter is stalked by the vengeful ghost of his victim. In the south, strange sorcery and dark gods threaten the white man's rule. A terrified man cowers in an isolated Louisiana swamp, dreading the no-longer-human thing that stalks him, seeking vengeance. A brash treasure-hunter breaks open an Indian burial mound and releases an evil creature trapped there for centuries. From the brilliant imagination of Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian, comes a varied cast of characters caught in a deadly journey into the unknown as they travel along the sinister... Trails in Darkness.
