Overview

STEVE COSTIGAN FIGHT STORIES contains twenty-two boxing short stories by 20th century pulp writer Robert E. Howard (the creator of 'Conan') featuring Sailor Steve Costigan. Costigan is a massive Irish-American boxer and sailor on the SEA GIRL, which travels the Pacific, involving Costigan in a series of humorous misadventures and fights. Costigan is an unreliable narrator, and fails to realize when he's drunk too much or who to fight. Originally published in pulp fight magazines during the 1920s and 1930s, the Steve Costigan stories reflect Howard's excellent skill at creating instant action and excitement.
