Long before Conan was popularized in comic books and film, Robert Earl Howard's creation, Conan the Cimmerian, clashed with his enemies in the pages of popular fantasy magazines of the '30s. None of the modern versions compare to Howard's dark, unpredictable character, who never fails the reader looking for action, excitement and surprise. This one-of-a-kind collection, composed of 13 tales and one poem, includes the thrilling story The Tower of the Elephant. Conan breaks into a supposedly impenetrable tower housing a great jewel, where he meets a rival thief and gets the surprise of his life. In Queen of the Black Coast Conan falls in with a band of pirates-and falls in love with Belit, the beautiful pirate queen. In the story Black Colossus Young princess Yasmela is being stalked by the wizard Natokh, who will stop at nothing to attain the object of his desire. The gods tell Yasmela to turn to Conan for aid and he answers her call in a final, spellbinding battle. Robert Earl Howard was the inventor of heroic fantasy. In this book are the tales of his legendary warrior are presented as he wanted them to be--his words exactly as he wrote them, organized by date of publication. With many breathtaking illustrations by Mark Schultz included throughout, this masterpiece of fantasy takes you back to a mythical place and time, where one of our most popular heroes was born.
