Anytime you see Paul Herman's name on a REH book it's a win/win! All of these Weird Works of REH are great reading! On the back cover of the book; Quote "People of the Dark is the second volume of The Weird Works of REH, presenting many of Howard's works from the pulp magazines like Weird Tales, meticulously restored to its original texts. This volume begins with "People of the Dark," featuring a prototypical Conan of the Reavers, and concludes with "The People of the Black Circle," one of the very best Conan the Cimmerian tales. This volume includes five Conan stories, as well as tales featuring other barbaric heroes, as only REH can present them." Unquote. All of REH stories stand the test of time as the very best ever! I like these paperback books a lot from Cosmos, Del Rey, etc. as they are easy to carry, on really good paper, and the fonts are good size and easy to read. The cover art by Ken Kelly and cover design by Garry Nurrish is awesome! Highly recommend One Who Walked Alone by Novalyn Price who was REH's girlfriend. There's a DVD called The Whole Wide World about REH and Novalyn starring Renne Zellweger and Vincent D'Onofrio as REH. Also must haves: The Last of the Trunk, Collected Letters of REH by Rob Roehm, and The Star Rover by Jack London one of REH's favorite authors. The Star Rover is about Darrell Standing a man in prison who doesn't break under pressure even in a straight jacket, no food, no water, beaten, for days and weeks.
