    Amazing beyond words... moves with extreme swiftness, and grace of prose

    This book is just as amazing as his Conan stories, it starts with a molten pace filled with startling excitement and rich gorgeous details that paint a picture in the mind worth infinite words. I recommend this to any reader who enjoys action, fantasy, and especially sword and sorcery the genre Howard pioneered with his incredible work.

    Not given JUSTICE

    Howard is/was an immense talent. A gifted storyteller. He should hold a higher court in the pantheon. If you have never read Howard, you won't be dissapointed.

    very interesting

    Howard is a master story-teller. He enjoys weaving in elements of his other books as well as other others, such as H. P. Lovecraft. These extra woven elements add dimension to the stories that make them all the more fun to read.

    Robert E. Howard - greatest story teller of all time!

    There are so many good things about this book! The introduction is superb! Here's a small sample by Rusty Burke, 'Robert E. Howard (1906-1936), in a writing career that spanned less than a dozen years, created many memorable fantasy adventure characters, such as Conan, Kull, and Solomon kane, who continue to thrill readers long after they first appeared in the legendary magazine, Weird Tales. The seemingly endlessly inventive author also created enormously popular characters in other genres, such as the wester tall tales of Breckenridge Elkins, the rollicking misadventrues of Sailor Costigan, and the Middle Easdtern exploits of El Borak and Kirby O'Donnell. But of all the many characters he created, none seem to have held for the Texas author a fascination to equal that of the people he called Picts, and their great king, Bran Mak Morn. Contents are: Foreward, Introduction, Men of the Shadows, King of the Night, A Song of the Race, Worms of the Earth, The Dark Man, The Last Race, Poem, Miscellane, The Little People, The Little People-Typescript, The Children of the Night, Bran Mak Morn, Bran Mak Morn manuscript, Synopsis, Worms of the Earth - Draft Version, Fragment, Poem - Previously Unpublished, Untitled, Appendices, REH and the Picts, A chronology, REH Bran Mak Morn and the Picts, Note on the original Howard Texts. Sketches byl Gary Gianni. Gary does a superb job on these sketches which are about every other page and coincides with the stories! How can I wear the harness of toil, And sweat at the daily round, While in my soul forever The drums of Pictdom sound? by REH on page 187 Miscellanea. Enjoy!

    strong anthology

    Though Bran Mak Morn is the prime player of this collection, as he stars in three of the short stories and is a feature star of the Miscellanea Part two section, this compilation is more accurately described as a deep look at the author¿s ¿Lost Race¿: the Picts. The compilation is fabulously enhanced by the illustrations of Gary Gianni that bring even more to life Howard¿s blending of fantasy and history in this case, the ancient world of the Picts. Clearly the sword and sorcery crowd who like a more historical anchor will want to read this insightful look at Mr. Howard¿s Pict world. Especially those who enjoy Conan will cherish BRAN MAK MORN: THE LAST KING that will remind fans of THE BLOODY CROWN OF CONAN in format and style; containing short stories enhanced by Mr. Gianni¿s delightful illustrations and Miscellanea and Appendices segments that provide further insight into the author and his rendition of the Picts.--- Harriet Klausner

    Acidently saveing the world. By: Dawn. Chapter One.

    (This will be a Adventure/Comedy book with a twist of Fanasy)
    .......
    Dawn walks in holding a stik and looks at it and says " What? Why am i holding a stick.........Misa!" Misa runs to Dawn and asks "What the problem?! Do you need a bandage or an ambulance?!" Dawn says "What? No. Do you know why i have a stick i mean i woke up this morning holding a stick and now my hair is purple! And you! Why do you look..........different?" Misa looks at herself and says "Uhhhhhh....... i don't know but at least we are in the same place ....right?" Dawn clutchs the stick and then looks around thinking *this isn't home ......it isn't even earth....i think*. Misa shouts "Hey look there are two more girls!" Misa points to two girls on the ground starting to wake up. Dawn squints her eyes and says "Why do they look so fimilar and ..........i......think i know them?"

    ROBERT E. HOWARD THE BEST OF THE BEST!!

    The introduction is superb! Here's a small sample by Rusty Burke, "Robert E.

Sketches by Gary Gianni. Gary does a superb job on these sketches which are about every other page and coincides with the stories! Must reads are: Blood & Thunder, The Life & Art of REH by Mark Finn, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyn Price, The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Hunt, and all Weird Works of REH by Paul Herman, Collected Letters & Poetry of REH by Rob Roehm, Dark Horse comics, Marvel comics, Two-Gun Bob, The Dark Barbarian and The Barabaric Triumph by Don Herron, Two-Gun Bob, Kull and Solomon and Conan of Dark Horse comics, Cormac Mac Art, and Lord of Samarcand.
