  • 5.0 stars I have not read all of the stories in this collection so this review is for the stories listed below These are the first Conan stories I have ever read and I did not go into them with really high expectations despite the great reviews , thinking they would be dated and kind of cheesy However, given the significant influence Robert E Howard, in general, and Conan, in particular, has had on the fantasy genre, I thought it was time I read at least a few for historical purposes With the ab [...]


  • By Crom That was the easiest 5 stars I have ever given to a book The best word to describe these works Fun This was pure, unadulterated joy from start to finish and has probably been the most enjoyable book I ve read in a long time More, , please


  • Conan the Cimmerian presents humanity at its best If one looks deeper than the contextual and necessary savagery of prehistoric man, one finds independence, personal responsibility, individual freedom, and amorality ethics from environment and perspective, not from edict Freedom from authority, freedom from civilization, and freedom from god Even where gods may actually exist, Conan would sooner curse them than bow to them Conan lives with an unbridled passion and vigor that comes from true inde [...]


  • It was fun to re read Howard after 31 years or so, and realize the Conan stories can reinvigorate, at least for a few hours, the 13 year old boy in all of us Plus, where else are you going to find purple prose gems like lizards of desolation Of course, after such a long haul with the brutish Cimmerian, you do realize each story is essentially the same Conan rescues a lithe mostly naked damsel in distress from a wizard or monster or both, usually in a lost city or on some mysterious island.


  • At last the Howard reread yields up some genuinely and consistently fabulous writing Conan is probably Mr Howard s best character and the one he wrote most faithfully for there are few generic stories here, almost all feel as though they were written for the panther like, mightily thewed Cimmerian The only tales holding this back from 5 stars are the ones published after his death that hadn t benefitted from a rewrite or editorial opinions These are great yarns and a barrel of fun to read.


  • You can never go wrong with Robert E Howard s Conan stories I have read these stories numerous times and every time I get completely lost in them These stories have blood and guts fights and grand battles, damsels in distress, pirates, thieves, assasins, sorcerers with dark magic and supernatural beasts what could you want Highly recommended



  • The details on magic spells face some insight on how twisted and evil magic can be.I listened to the Librivox version of this read by Mark Nelson Highly recommend.


  • I rate Robert E Howard as the most imaginative author that I ve ever read His creative powers are perhaps the most notable in the world of Conan Howard s detailed map of the fictitious Hyborean Age and its history, including that leading up to the time of Conan s birth, are exceptional.I ve read some of the stories featured in this collection twice before, first in my pre and early teens, secondly in my early twenties Other stories here are brand new to me I read a lot of fantasy and sword sorce [...]


  • Before I read any swords sorcery fantasy, I was unconditional fan of Tolkien s The Lord of the Rings It was, to me, the be all and end all of fantasy Those were my youth days Later on, I discovered Robert E Howard by accident and became an instant fan of Conan other REH favorites are El Borak and Solomon Kane Forget Tolkien with it s long winded prose and silly hobbits This is what fantasy should be.Howard s writing is powerful and vigorous with a Conan that is light years away from Schwarzenegg [...]


  • There are 18 stories in this book together with a brief history of the foundation of the empires in which they are told, spanning over 500 pages I took a long time reading this book because it was simply too good to rush.From the first story to the last you are treated to an unrivalled ability to grab hold of the ready and drag them on adventure after adventure You quickly become acquainted with the huge bronze skinned, black haired Cimmerian who s blue eyes blaze with the fire of life Conan s p [...]


  • This was the first time that I ve ever read any of Howard s writing or any Conan stories Being familiar with the character only from the 80 s movie and cultural osmosis I was a little shocked by a few things I discovered while reading, 1 the descriptive writing is fantastic, Howard really can paint a scene with words and does in just a few paragraphs what I ve seen other writers struggle to do in a few pages 2 while he is the protagonist of most of the stories in this collection, Conan is rarely [...]



  • I m not sure how Robert E Howard s Conan stories ever gained such lasting popularity They are glaringly racist, blatantly sexist, and poorly written It s as though Howard had read Strunk and White s famous Elements of Style and defiantly set out to break their every precept On top of all that, the stories are terribly repetitive I ve read the first half of the Fantasy Masterworks collection several times, chiefly in a morbid attempt to figure out why anybody likes it thus far I ve not been succe [...]


  • Howard writes simply and brutally raw enough to capture the feeling of a brutal sword and sorcery existence, and conjure the imagery of a prehistory civilization This collection of Howard s Conan stories rearranges the stories into a chronological order based upon Conan s travels and Howard s notes and letters , rather than based upon date of publication A terrific collection along with volume 2 , the reading of which made me feel like I was 13 again.


  • C1977 It was great to read all the previously published magazine stories in chronological order It is what it is and should be enjoyed as such FWFTB boy thief, mercenary, supernatural, warrior , sword and FCN Conan the Cimmerian


  • Outstanding sword and sorcery The only thing I am disappointed in is that it took me this long to read any Conan, and indeed, Robert E Howard fantasy I now know why these are considered to be such classics.


  • Excellent collection of pulp era sword and sorcery novellas Recommended For an extended review, please visit my blog tesatorul 2008 05


  • Good stories.but somehow very similar to each other.I think I prefer Conan comicse stories need illustrations to come alive


  • Elegant, economic prose and a hypnotic repetition across the tales Spoiled by the bursts of racism and misogyny which are hard to overlook.




  • I ve reread this one several times Not that Robert E Howard is an astonishing master or anything, but his prose, in rare places worth searching for, does absolutely magical things with words.
