Summary (From the publisher):

Howard has been described by H.P. Lovecraft as a master of "description of vast megalithic cities of the elder world, around whose dark towers and labyrinthine nether vaults cling an aura of pre-human fear and necromancy which no other writer could duplicate."

Apart from the full-length novel Skull-Face, perhaps the best Howard ever wrote, this magnificent selection contains twenty-one stories, the rare article The Hyborian Age, two poems and appreciations by E. Hoffmann Price and Lovecraft. Here are such well-known stories as Worms of the Earth, The Black Stone, Wolfshead, Kings of the Night and Valley of the Worm. There are also lesser-known tales such as Rattle of Bones, The Cairn on the Headland and A Man-Eating Jeopard. What August Derleth described as Howard's "faculty for telling stories ... equalled by few of his contemporaries" is amply demonstrated.
