A master of all genres of pulp, from historical adventure and detective stories to western and boxing fiction, Robert E. Howard invented the genre now known as Sword-and-Sorcery, and it is for these larger than life tales of heroic fantasy and horror that he is best remembered. Plucked from the pages of Weird Tales and other pulp magazines, his mighty heroes are brought together in one collectionthe vengeful Puritan swashbuckler Solomon Kane; Howard's first barbarian hero King Kull; Bran Mak Morn, the last of the Picts; Red Sonja, She-Devil with a Sword; and many others. World Fantasy Award-nominee Les Edwards contributes a black and white frontispiece, along with a gold embossed work on the leather-style cover, while Hugo Award- and Bram Stoker Award-winning editor and author Stephen Jones compiled the selections and provides an insightful afterword.
