    I want more!

    I loved the Kull stories, even with all their inconsistencies (which I probably would have ignored had I not read the editor's notes at the end). I'm a big fan of sword and sorcery stories to begin with and I honestly don't think many have done it better than Howard has. I look forward to moving on to Conan.

    Seminal Sword and Sorcery tales.

    Robert E Howard invented ths sword and sorcery subgenre, and was part of a small circle of above average pulp writers that are now considered classic. While mostly known for his "Conan" stories, Howard's Kull character is as macho and as magic and beautifully written. Part of the "noble savage" tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, as well as the horror elements of H.P. Lovecraft, high fantasy elements of Tolkien, though in a more adult world full of antiquity, sex, and violence. Kull is a barabarian from pre-cataclysmic Atlantis whom has usurped the throne of Valusia, a powerful nation state now in a period of decline. The clash of Kull's values with those of the "civilized men" he now rules, is part of the fun.

    Glimpse the beginning of a sword and sorcery masterpiece

    Robert E. Howard only wrote for a very short time but in that time he created and defined the sword and sorcery archetype. Kull is his first creation before Conan and there are many similarities there. The chiseled features, the stoic king, the barbaric fury.<BR/><BR/>I only wish there was more character depth and more history since Kull seems half finished in many places. The writing is all Howard though with lush landscapes and sweeping details. Even his bits and pieces of unfinished work provides an amazing look into the mind of a master.<BR/><BR/>A must own for anyone who is a fan of anything fantasy or sword and sorcery.

    ROBERT E. HOWARD THE BEST OF THE BEST WRITER AND POET OF ALL TIME!!

    By this Axe I Rule was changed by Robert E. Howard and taylor made for Conan. This is an excellent book and a must have to add to any collection. Robert E. Howard was an extra-ordindary creative writer who in my opinion was the best! His vision, talent, creative writing, and action packed stories can and will never be replicated! To learn more about this unique man read Blood & Thunder, The Life and Art of Robert E. Howard by Mark Finn. Also, read the Best of Robert E. Howard 1 & 2. Number two has my favorites Red Nails, Beyond The Black River, and scariest story EVER Pigeons From Hell! Be sure to read it at night with plenty of light. Kull is coming to Dark Horse comics next month in Nov/Dec 08. Solomon Kane is already on the stands and so is Conan. Kull also can be found in Marvel magazines of Conan during the sixties, seventies, and eighties. A lot of these stories were written by Roy Thomas and drawn by John Buscema who were my favorite team to work together on REH stories. There were some excellent writers and artists but Roy and John were solid gold!
