More About The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard by Robert E. Howard; Greg Staples
 
 
 
Overview
Here are Howard's greatest horror tales, all in their original, definitive versions. Some of Howard's best-known characters-Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and sailor Steve Costigan among them-roam the forbidding locales of the author's fevered imagination, from the swamps and bayous of the Deep South to the fiend-haunted woods outside Paris to remote jungles in Africa.

The collection includes Howard's masterpiece "Pigeons from Hell," which Stephen King calls "one of the finest horror stories of the twentieth] century," a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation-and into the maw of its fatal secret. In "Black Canaan" even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers-and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. In these and other lavishly illustrated classics, such as the revenge nightmare "Worms of the Earth" and "The Cairn on the Headland," Howard spins tales of unrelenting terror, the legacy of one of the world's great masters of the macabre.

Howard's grisly tales of horror

The beloved American writer Robert E. Howard ran amok with this theme in his many horror stories of the 1930s, gathered in The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard, the latest installment in the Robert E. Howard Library from Del Rey, with startling illustrations by graphic artist Greg Staples. Inspired by his matchless contemporary H.P. Lovecraft, Howard created an entire cosmology of a horrific Outside impinging upon our world, waiting for our merest transgression to come hurtling through to kill us, or worse, torment us for eternity. We can never know for sure the reasons for his suicide in 1936, but it surely cannot have been easy for Howard to live in a universe crowded with horrors he believed in with enough conviction to body them forth with ghastly imaginative force, in tale after grisly tale.
