The best of the Conan pastiches
It's great to have this omnibus of the classic Decamp and Carter Conan books available in a uniform edition with the original Del Rey Conan trilogy by Robert E. Howard. This is truly Conan 'volume four,' by far the most sublime Conan books ever published that were not by REH himself. Hopefully their other fabulous Conan books can be similarly published in a huge omnibus collection like this, such as Conan the Avenger, Conan of Aquilonia and Conan of the Isles. These classics represent a bygone age, the Silver Age of the sixties and seventies, when fantasy paperbacks were publishing the absolute cream of the crop. We may never see days like that again, but we can at least enshrine what we do have for posterity. These are must read books for anyone who wants to study the history of the character of Conan in the first golden decade of the Lancer series that made him a household name.
