"On back of book: Quote "In 1984 the critical anthology The Dark Barbarian gave the writing of Robert E. Howard the serious attention it always deserved. Now 20 years later Don Herron presents the exciting sequel, The Barbaric Triumph, in which the originator of Sword and Sorcery fantasy and creator of Conan the Barbarian once more comes under the critical guns."

"In the explosive essay "The Reign of Blood" Leo Grin explores the phantoms of Hate simmering beneath Howard's blook-drenched rose,while in the the quieter "The Shadow from a Soul on Fire" Edward A. Waterman investigates Howard's lifelong interest in philosophy. Other essays survey the author's tales of boxing and ancestral memory, probe Howard's visionary use of the American Frontier Myth, and compare his signal accomplishment to that of J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft."

To learn more about REH read Mark Finn's Blood & Thunder-The Life & Art of REH, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Price, Collected Letters & Poetry of REH by Rob Roehm, The Last of the Trunk, The Never Ending Hunt, and All Weird Works by Paul Herman, and Two-Gun Bob. This is one of my favorites books. Check out the REH Foundation & Forum.
