- Full Description
Queen of the Black Coast and others. This beautifully designed collection contains nine essential Conan stories along with a full-length Conan novel. Also included is The Hyborean Age, Howard's fascinating history of the raw, blood-drenched world Conan inhabited. Full color map by George Barr, color frontis by Brom, and Frank Frazetta's seminal Conan paintings, appearing for the first time with the stories for which they were created.
The other stories here are "Shadows in the Moonlight," "A Witch Shall Be Born," "The Devil in Iron," "The People of the Black Circle," "Shadows in Zamboula," "Jewels of Gwahlur," and the all-time classic, "Red Nails." But actually most of these are all-time classics--you'll recognize many of these which were entire novels published by Donald M. Grant several decades ago, as stand-alone books. Also here are three REH poems.
Introduction by Arnie Fenner. Afterword by H.P. Lovecraft.
Different from the color frontis is another full color plate by Brom, mounted to the cover of the traycase, surrounded by a gold embosed scrollwork and titles.
From a total edition of 500 signed copies. This is a publisher file copy, from Underwood Books, as-new in the original protective cardboard box.
As one of the three most important American pulp fantasy authors of the 1930s (with Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith), Robert E. Howard captivated readers with his indomitable, battle-scarred barbarian hero Conan. Though Howard's life ended prematurely in 1936 at the age of 30, Conan lives on as one of the genre's most enduring icons.
