Overview

Moon of Skulls is the first volume of the Weird Works of Robert E. Howard, presenting all of Howard's work for the pulp magazine Weird Tales meticulously restored to its original magazine texts. Edited by Paul Herman. Contents The Gothic Orient (introduction) by Mark Finn, Skull-Face, Dead Man's Hate, The Fearsome Touch of Death, A Song out of Midian, Shadows on the Road, The Moon of Skulls, The Hills of the Dead, Black Chant Imperial, The Voice of El-Lil, Robert E. Howard's writing career began in 1924, and by 1929, he was selling steadily to different markets. However, Weird Tales continued to be his most dependable, if not financially reliable, market. In the pages of "the unique magazine," Howard had plenty of room to explore ideas and cross genre barriers that he may not have been able to with other pulp fiction magazines. Continuing the collection of Howard's fiction and poetry in order of publication, Volume Two of The Weird Works of Robert E. Howard picks up where Volume One left off-at one of the most startling and controversial Howard stories of all: "Skull-Face!" A potent combination of gothic themes and oriental mystique, "Skull-Face" was the first novella Howard sold, and in many ways, is a key to understanding the rest of Howard's canon. A detailed, complicated plot, a compelling cast of characters, and a collision of themes and ideas make "Skull-Face" required reading for Howard fans. The Moon of Skulls collects Robert E. Howard's fiction and prose published in Weird Tales Magazine from October 1929 to November 1930, plus one from Oriental Stories. These works represent literary stepping-stones to Howard's infamous Cthulhu mythos stories and his most famous character of all -- Conan the Cimmerian -- and ably demonstrate that each of Howard's stories improved and added to his formidable skills as a master of fantasy and adventure.

    ROBERT E. HOWARD - THE BEST OF THE BEST!

    You've got to get this book, even if you've read some of the other stories just to read 'The Fearsome Touch of Death,' a strange little study in fear, is one of the most unknown of REH's stories of all, and this marks it's first appearance in book form since it debuted in Weird Tales in Feb 1930. REH is the best adverture story teller wordsmith of all time! I special ordered this at Barnes & Noble at their customer service desk along with two other REH books. It's quick, easy, and free shipping. Visit your local Used Book Store and you might find some REH gems like I did! Tell others about REH. They're in for a real treat. Check out the REH Foundation & Forum.
