Some Of Howard's Best-known Characters - Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, And Sailor Steve Costigan Among Them - Roam The Forbidding Locales Of The Author's Fevered Imagination, From The Swamps And Bayous Of The Deep South To The Fiend-haunted Woods Outside Paris To Remote Jungles In Africa. jonathan Pearce - Library Journal generously Illustrated With Artist Staples's Mood-enhancing Black-and-white Drawings, And Including Many Of The Author's Poems Serving The Same Purpose, This First-ever Collection Of 60 Stories And Sketches Of Terror Represent Most Of The Styles Employed By The Young Dean (1906-36) Of American Horror, Who Also Created Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, And Conan The Barbarian. Originally Published In Pulp Magazines, These Tales Are Often Beautifully Literate, The Energy Of Howard's Writing Nearly Palpable.

The Horrors Include Warped Humans, Monsters, Werewolves, And Fantastic Beasts In Period Pieces, Along With Ordinary People In Unusual Modern Circumstances, As In The Touch Of Death. The Stories Are Not All Horror. The Spirit Of Tom Molyneaux Is In Effect A Thrilling And Inspirational, If Now Politically Incorrect (through Its Use Of Dated Language), Sports Fantasy.
