Robert E. Howard '1906-1936' was and still is the greatest adventure story teller wordsmith of all time! Any time you can get one of his books please do. It's non stop action, terror, adventure, and more! Two of my favorite stories are The Dream Snake, Weird Tales, Feb 1928 and The Hyena, Weird Tales, Mar 1928. Red Shadows is superb, too This is about Solomon Kane who hunts a wolf named Le Loup. There's some excellent poetry.

Excert from back of book, 'Welcome to one of the boldest undertakings in modern fantasy publishing...the complete fantasy works of Robert E. Howard from the legendary pulp magazine Weird Tales (and several other classic publications). All texts have been meticulously restored and are for the first time presented in order or original publication. New introductions by leading Howard scholars offer fascinating insights into the life and work of the orginator of the 'sword & sorcery' genre and the creator of Conan! Here, in the first of a ten volume series, you will discover not only the first adventures of such characters as Solomon Kane and King Kull, but other known gems such as 'Wolfshead,''The Dream Snake,' and 'Spear and Fang.' Edited by Paul Herman, introduction by Mark Finn and cover by Stephen Fabian.' I like reading REH's poems and the Sea Ghost was pretty creepy. These are must books to have. I only have two of the 10 but working on getting the rest.
