Read full description of the books:
Four of the most popular Conan stories in one volume—a great introduction to this iconic character and a must-read for all fantasy and adventure fans
Conan was born on a battlefield, the son of a village blacksmith, in the land of Cimmeria. By the age of 15 he was already a seasoned warrior with a thirst for blood and justice. Robert E. Howard’s tales of Conan, originally published in the magazine Weird Tales in the 1930s, span various episodes of Conan’s life; some telling tales of his days as a young warrior leading armies into battle, some capturing Conan as an older and wiser man who has risen to become King. Four of Howard’s most popular stories are collected in this stunning new volume: "The Tower of the Elephant," "Queen of the Black Coast," "Beyond the Black River," and "Red Nails." Considered one of the greats of fantasy literature and hugely influential for all those authors who followed, Howard’s Conan tales are brimming with colorful characters and vivid landscapes, and are unapologetically brash and inventive.

Read information about the authorRobert Ervin Howard was an American pulp writer of fantasy, horror, historical adventure, boxing, western, and detective fiction. Howard wrote "over three-hundred stories and seven-hundred poems of raw power and unbridled emotion" and is especially noted for his memorable depictions of "a sombre universe of swashbuckling adventure and darkling horror."
He is well known for having created — in the pages of the legendary Depression-era pulp magazine Weird Tales — the character Conan the Cimmerian, a.k.a. Conan the Barbarian, a literary icon whose pop-culture imprint can only be compared to such icons as Tarzan of the Apes, Count Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond.
