Summary (From the publisher):

This is writing as sheer, relentless excitement, from the grandmaster of pulp fiction. The indomitable Kull faces a dealy plot from the priests of a serpent god, and sleeps through centuries to lead an army in an epic conflict; a vengeful curse twists the will of the living and causes the dead to walk;during an elaborate criminal conspiracy in the Wild West, bleak justice comes through the barrel of a gun; and, of course, the barbarian king of sword-and-sorcery, Conan of Cimmeria, scales walls, flexes his muscles and does battle with devious foes and grotesque monsters as the world darkens around him.

Selected with an introduction by John Clute.
