An excellent collection that shows the range and diversity of Howard s interests and talents as a writer This was actually the first Robert E Howard book that I ever owned and thus it hold s a special place in my heart That s not to say that it s without faults far from it in fact but the good in this case far outweighs the bad The book opens with a brief but interesting enough introduction by Glenn Lord Nothing new there but enjoyable enough However the letter that follows a correspondence between Howard and Wilfred B Talman to be insightful and interesting During it s course Howard speaks of his youth the jobs he s worked and his dislike of working them or working in general It added to my overall enjoyment of the bookThe book opens with the origin tale of one of Howard s intriguing characters Dark Agnes in the tale Sword Woman A fairly lengthy tale and one I became engrossed in I absolutely need to delve into her other two penned Howard tales sometime and learn about the character definitely on my to do list After such a strong start the following poems and tales including a Kull story and a well written boxing tale while entertaining enough didn t uite stack up in comparison After reading through them I came on the next tale Black Canaan which I ll save my thoughts on for when I do my review of it when I cover the Berkley release that bore the tale as the book s titleTwo poems and the short but interesting enough horror tale Kelly the Conjure Man follow before another gem pops up in the form of the Solomon Kane tale The Footfalls Within Kane is my personal favorite of Howard s many wonderful characters and I never tire of reading his tales Though this one isn t one of my personal favorites it s still an excellent read and definitely added to my overall enjoyment of the book and served as my introduction to Solomon Kane as a youth After this we re treated to a hilarious and extremely entertaining Western tale Knife River Prodigal focusing on the adventures or rather the misadventures of the dull witted but overall good hearted Buckner J Grimes As someone that absolutely loves Howard s comedic Western tales I loved this particular story and it s one I ve read and re read many times over the yearsTwo poems follow as well as the excellently written detective tale The House of Suspicion I ve not yet had the opportunity to read many of Howard s pulp drenched detective tales something I intend to rectify having recently purchased the Berkley released Skull Face collection of detective stories but I enjoyed the tale immensely and look forward to reading of his detective stories in the future Next came the historical fiction adventure Two Against Tyre which as it turns out is one of my favorite tales houses in this excellent collectionAnother poem follows as well as the folk music inspired tale For the Love of Barbara Allen An okay story but not one I found myself enjoying in comparison to the bulk of Howard s other writing that I ve encountered Still it s uniue enough in the sense that it s the only Howard tale that I know of that focuses it s story around folk music so that s something I suppose Next to follow however was an excellent and spicy little Howard tale Guns of Khartum which I loved and consider another favorite of mine from this collection Closing out the book we get a very somber and powerful poem Lines written in the realization that I must die All in all a good ending to a wonderful and diverse collection of Howard s writing I recommend this book highly especially to those that wish to read Howard material outside of the Conan work that he s best remembered for
