Articles about Conan and Robert E. Howard.
  • This is a series of articles about the Conan books and related matters. The articles about weapons and tactics meant a lot to me when it came out because I was really into fantasy books and games. I still am and they still do.

  • It is great to see an exploration of the World of Conan. Conan has been watered down, simplified by Hollywood. This little tome explores Howard's ideas, expands them. Sprague is a wonderful writer and editor. The essays within show the sometimes subtle possible complexity to these wonderful mainstay of this genre

  • Intersting views and background.

  • If you want an anthology of Conan, its OK, it is not a story, not an adventure. Book was in good shape, price was good, delivery was good.

  • A nice collection of articles about Robert E. Howard, Conan, and Sword & Sorcery heroes that ran in the old hard to find "Amra" magazine in the 70s and that are reprinted in Blade of Conan. Some of the writers include Sprague De Camp, Poul Anderson, Glenn Lord, Fritz Lieber and Jerry Pournelle. A good collection of criticism and examination of the sorts of stories and novels Howard wrote, and other types of heroic fiction, but no actual Conan stories or fiction here from the master.
