Spiritual and Speculative Alchemy Aug 23, 2008
Many times we pick up a brief bit of fiction for a reprieve from the study of deep lore or historical fact. In this case, you will be sorely disappointed. This is not little dime store novel. This is a journey of alchemical and spiritual allegory disguised as a novel. Excellent read. Open your mind and enjoy.
ROBERT E. HOWARD = THE BEST OF THE BEST! Jul 6, 2008
Beyond The Black River is a gutsy and barbaric struggle of everyday people trying to survive the attacking Picts which are small animalistic men bent on killing innocent men, women, and children. REH Scholars say this is one or if not his best story. I believe Beyond The Black River will make an excellent movie. Mel Gibson or Clint Eastwood would be perfect as they are the best directors/actors in the industry.
The six superb stories in this third edition of Weird Works from pulp magazine Weird Tales of REH are: A Witch Shall Be Born, The Grisly Horror, Jewels of Gwahlur, Beyond The Black River, The Challenge From Beyond (Horror),and Shadows in Zamboula - 352 pages.
These two horror stories were the first time I've read them and they scared the daylights out of me. The Thing on The Roof (People of the Dark)and Pigeons From Hell (The Black Stranger) are two excellent horror stories. To me, Pigeons From Hell is the scariest! Don't read these stories alone at night.
Highly recommend Volumes One and Two! An introduction in future volumes by the likes of Paul Herman, Don Herron, Mark Finn, Joe Lansdale, Jim & Ruth Keegan, etc. would be nice.
Red Nails is one of my other favorite REH stories and can be found in Crimson Shadows -The Best of REH by Del Rey Vol 2. Vol 1 is a must have, too as is Rogues In The House.
Must reads: Blood & Thunder, The Life & Art of REH by Mark Finn, One Who Walked Alone by Novalyne Price Ellis, The Barbaric Triumph and The Dark Barbarian by Don Herron, Two-Gun Bob, The Last of The Trunk and Selected Letter of REH at REH Foundation, Dark Horse Comics Conan & Pigeons From Hell, Marvel Conan B&W Magazine of the seventies by Roy Thomas & John Buscema, Almuric, The Star Rover by Jack London which had a major influence on REH, Bran Mak Morn, All Conans, Kull, El Borak, Solomon Kane, Boxing stories - Steve Costigan, Lord of Samarcand, The Black Stranger & Other American Tales, Cormac Mac Art, and more!!
Be sure to tell others about REH as if you've never read one of his stories before it's similar to the first time wearing glasses and seeing the world differently and being in awe! Reread them and you'll encounter details overlooked before. Enjoy!!
