    I gave this book a 4-star rating only because the illustrations are fabulous. This book is worth owning because, of all artists, Esteban Maroto draws the best Conan. This, of course, is my own simple opinion. I've been a Cimmerian fan for a long time, and Maroto is the only artist who draws Conan exactly the way I have always envisioned him with the exception of Frank Frazetta, of course.

    Of the Conan books I have read, this may well be my favourite. To begin with, the presentation is nice. The cover is exciting and well done by Sanjulian, whom I do not know otherwise. Conan seems to fight an ape or ape-like creature in every book, or that has been my experience, and the artists is either nodding at this fact or simply selected it as a cool subject. The interior art is by Esteban Maroto. There are a lot of interior illustrations, making this a semi-comic book (or graphic novel fo [...]

    Spoilers.I have a couple of problems with this book, I guess because my feeling for Conan is diffracted through [author de Camp|3305] et al, and I expect this world to have a slightly different consistency. That is, while most of the book is utterly serviceable Conan, I have a lot of dislike for:-the way the wizard is almost an aside and the warlord, not even a tough one, is the big boss,-the way the ghouls come out and punish Conan's followers and friends for trusting him (and you know they'll [...]

    The book was actually written in 1955 by L. Sprague De Camp, based on Howard's original Conan. Conan is the ultimate primitive. He's strong as several oxen & smart too, plus he's honorable. I like that combination. This is the 1981 edition, which includes lavish illustrations by Estaban Maroto, depicting bosomy maidens & brawny barbarians. The story's not important. There's lots of action & adventure. Another plus is that muscles always triumph over magic. This is perfect when requir [...]

    Robert E. Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited. This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E. Howard's stories. I am a purist when it comes to a writers works. I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period. Don't read this book unless you just can't find any others of Howard's unedited books to read. Message me if you need a li [...]

    I loved the ending of this adventure. the young Nanai battles alongside of Conan disobeying his orders of fleeing to safety. So he congratulates her with a hard kiss and a spanking on the ass. One for being a great swordswoman and the other for not following his orders. Though with her disguising herself as a fighter, she saves him the time in having to go back to the tower and save her from the demons. :) That is an amazing woman. She saved herself, without needing the muscles of a man.

    Certainly not one of the better Conan books, but it was a very quick read, perfect for a sunny afternoon. This edition is also "lavishly illustrated" with very good pen and ink illustrations on practically every other page. Sword-slashing fun.

    This originally was not a Conan story but was rewritten by De Camp from a story Howard wrote about another character. It wasn't terribly bad, though, perhaps because there was a decent Howardian feel. The illustrations by Maroto are also pretty good.

    I love the way writers told stories in the early half of the 1900's. Their writing style and language use is so much more descriptive and amusing. The Robert E. Howard books are the best Conan stories written.

    A good read, and better written than many of today's books.

    Great book. I like this better than the El Borak story it was adapted from. And the artwork is great

    Mike
    Lots of fun

    Antonio
    LOTS OF ACTION AND THE ILLUSTRATIONS BY ESTEBAN MAROTO ARE AWESOME!

    reread sometime in 2006 under a different name, the title of which escapes me
