Robert Ervin Howard (1906¿1936) wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre. Howard spent time in his late teens bodybuilding, eventually taking up amateur boxing—which he also wrote stories about. His tales of heroic & supernatural fantasy won him a huge audience across the world and influenced a whole generation of writers, from Robert Jordan to Raymond E. Feist.

Black Hounds of Death (Weird Works of Robert E. Howard, Volume 9) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Red Nails is one of my all time favorites of REH!!! Every story he writes is a classic but Red Nails left an imprint on me that I'll aways remember as the best story I've read!! Dig me no Grave is here, too! These Weird Works are awesome! The paperback books are the perfect size, easy to read fonts, good color fonts, and on good quality stock paper. Ever story in the Weird Works are classics!! There is some terrific poetry in the back and a very interesting untiltled draft but has in parens "The Seeker Thrust" 1928.
