The legacy of one of the world’s great masters of the macabre, here is a collection of Robert E. Howard’s greatest horror tales.

Robert E. Howard, renowned creator of Conan the barbarian, was also a master at conjuring tales of hair-raising horror. In a career spanning only twelve years, Howard wrote more than a hundred stories, with his most celebrated work appearing in Weird Tales, the preeminent pulp magazine of the era.

In this collection of Howard’s greatest horror tales, some of the author’s best-known characters—Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and sailor Steve Costigan among them—roam the forbidding locales of Howard’s fevered imagination, from the swamps and bayous of the Deep South to the fiend-haunted woods outside Paris to remote jungles in Africa.

Included in this collection is Howard’s masterpiece, “Pigeons from Hell,” a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation—and into the maw of its fatal secret. In “Black Canaan,” even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers—and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. Also included is the classic revenge nightmare “Worms of the Earth,” as well as “The Cairn on the Headland.”

    " I finally read this book after 2 years! It's a collection of short stories, so it was easy to just read it in between other things. Suffice it to say, Robert E. Howard is a master, one of my biggest influences, and this book was great. Some of the stories were obviously better than others, but it was a great collection. "

    " From the creator of Conan comes strange and engaging tales. "

    " This one was a very interesting switch on a beloved author. I have read and know well all of his Conan, Kane, Bran stories etc. The horror stories were a treat. Especially the cowboy horror stories! That was a surprise...how much I enjoyed that segment of the book. I think the ones I liked the best were the unfinished few towards the end of the book. His writing had really improved by that point. A sad ending to what could have been a brilliant career. "

    " Some dated and painful ethnic stereotypes, but the stories themselves are amazing. "
