A master of all genres of pulp, from historical adventure and detective stories to Western and boxing fiction, Robert E. Howard invented the genre now known as Sword-and-Sorcery, and it is for these larger than life tales of heroic fantasy and horror that he is best remembered. Plucked from the pages of Weird Tales and other pulp magazines, his mighty heroes are brought together in one collection—the vengeful Puritan swashbuckler Solomon Kane; Howard's first barbarian hero King Kull; Bran Mak Morn, the last of the Picts; Red Sonja, She-Devil with a Sword; and many others. World Fantasy Award–nominee Les Edwards contributes a black-and-white frontispiece, along with a gold embossed work on the leather-style cover, while Hugo Award– and Bram Stoker Award–winning editor and author Stephen Jones compiled the selections and provides an insightful afterword.

Descripción Gollancz, 2009. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This is essentially as new, though the page edges have unavoidably begun to faintly yellow with age, tho this is faint and doesn't detract from the overall exquisite appearance of this book with its black boards with large gilt titles and sword design, there are also the tiny, spotty remnants of a price sticker on the bottom of the rear cover which can be painstakingly removed, while the pages are clean and the binding is tight, certainly suitable for a gift. Dispatched from the UK same or next working day. Nº de ref. de la librería 002496
