    Sadly Disappointed

    Robert Howard may have been a great writer but sadly this book clearly shows he was a racist of the major kind. Maybe he thought people of color could not read or he just did not expect or care if people of color would buy his books, because he surely was not interested in portraying us in a positive light. Correction I believe once in the book he said one bad characteristic, thievery was not exclusive to the Black Race. Perhaps his bigotry is why he died so young (30 I believe). His writing refers to "Blacks/Negroes" in such degrading terms in this book I had to check the Bio to make sure it was not rewritten during reconstruction. Shades, remember the movie, "Birth of a Nation", white men painted in black face chasing white women before the KKK. Not only does Howar use every negative persona he could when making references to Black characters, he played the ultimate race card in leading his readers, as was the practice in Hollywood and else where that, "That Black Men Are Obsessed with raping a White Woman" and of course, the White Hero must come to her rescue. How many Black Men where hung during the 1800s and 1900s for just looking at a White Woman. I read Howard's books as a youngster but was to young to appreciate the bigotry in his writing, this time I ordered the book on CD, wish I could send it back to Barnes & Noble. I love fantasy, sword & sorcery, unfortunatley even in the unreal world of these genres racism is a clear and present danger. Geez, I thought Howard was gifted until today.
