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.
