    1. Rodolfo says:
      Probably one of my all time favorite book covers This cover is pure Conan Just look at him battling 2 frost giants awesome This was the first Conan book I ever read I instantly became a fan of Robert E Howard and this character I probably spent endless hours redrawing this cover and dreaming of battling giants with swords and axes through most of my early teens 12 15 I quickly went to the library and checked out all the other books in the series.

    2. J. Kendrick Allen says:
      The I read the Conan series, the I realize the genius of Robert Howard Despite the pulp fiction nature of the stories, he vividly portrays the exploits of a seemingly simple yet nuanced character in a way few authors have achieved It s no wonder Conan remains a household name and the father of so many fantasy tropes til this very day

    3. Michael says:
      Here s Book 2 in my re read of the Conan series by Robert E Howard.The Curse of the MonolithL Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter kick things off by having Conan get stuck to a magnet on which a monster of living jelly is called forth by the flute of a scheming Duke he s either a Duke, or his name is Duke I really wasn t sure.The Bloodstained GodA Howard and de Camp story that bears a lot of similarities to The City of Skulls, which closed out Book 1 I didn t care for that story and I don t like this [...]

    4. Marc Manley says:
      Say what you will, Howard was a master craftsman at his trade story telling I find his fantastical world engaging and entertaining Howard s Conan isn t going to solve any philosophical questions he just takes you for a ride.

    5. Mary Overton says:
      Conan, the meta physician from the story, Queen of the Black Coast Belit, the pirate queen and Conan s lover, asks, Conan, do you fear the gods I would not tread on their shadow, answered the barbarian conservatively Some gods are strong to harm, others, to aid at least so say their priests Mitra of the Hyborians must be a strong god, because his people have builded their cities over the world But even the Hyborians fear Set ancient snake god And Bel, god of thieves, is a good god When I was a t [...]

    6. Kione says:
      Robert E Howard rocked hard.The godfather of sword and sorcery.No crap No bullshit If you like Feist, Goodkind, Martin or any thing like that.Then you might not like anything by Howard.In other words.No wussies

    7. Valerie says:
      Typical Conan monsters, sorcery, women, treasure, swordfightsgotta love it

    8. Bobby Bermea says:
      These books are difficult to get next to because of the additions by L Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter What they were attempting was fun and worthwhile but just not as good as the muscular dynamism of Howard s prose Why four stars then Because there are three of Howard s stories in here and they are still wonderful I gave this book four stars on the strength of Queen of the Black Coast and The Frost Giant s Daughter alone.

    9. Mike (the Paladin) says:
      This is one of the Lancer Conans Some of you will hate them because they are not only NOT the pure Howard stories, but they also include stories made from notes and pastiches by other authors I enjoyed them, maybe not so much as the pure Howard stories, but they are good I don t have all of them any and they are hard to findif you can find them they are worth a try Wish someone would reissue them.

    10. Simon says:
      The jewel in the crown of this collection is most definitely Queen of the Black Coast The rest are ok and of varying quality.

    11. David B says:
      In order to enjoy pulp fiction, one must often make allowances for the backward racial attitudes of the time Since this collection of stories finds Conan adventuring in the Black Kingdoms, such unfortunate references are pervasive than usual and detracted from the pleasure of the reading experience In addition, most of these stories are of the monster of the week type, which loses interest even when well written As usual, self appointed collaborators Lin Carter and L Sprague de Camp fill out th [...]

    12. Phil Overeem says:
      From 5th to 8th grade, I was deeply involved in Howard s Conan series I traded em away for comics pretty much immediately after reading each, but found one at a flea market a year or so ago Now I am deeply disturbed that I was weaned on them but they are still cool If you enjoyed the Conan experience, you might want to rentThe Whole Wide Worldwhich tells the story of the young Robert Howard.

    13. Ron says:
      Hard to beat the original Conan The character never dies Conan is forever.

    14. Jim says:
      The continuing adventures of Robert Howard s legendary character Conan the Barbarian, as presented by messrs L Sprague deCamp and Lin Carter Conan of Cimmeria features seven Conan short stories, but only three of them are among Howard s original 21 The other four are all either pastiches by DeCamp and Carter, or Howard stories originally featuring lesser known characters that DeCamp took and re wrote as Conan stories The result is a book of wildly varying quality from one story to the next The u [...]

    15. Jacob says:
      Still 3 stars Better than the first Conan Little nuanced, stories longer, settings varied As I mentioned in my review of the first book, the writing is not nearly as bad as I feared it would be and the pre history Pangea truly is a stroke of genius I liked the Queen of the Black Coast , The Castle of Terror , and The Snout in the Dark Supernatural in ancient ruins is a tried and true staple of Mr Howard which the first two employ I wish Queen of the Black Coast had been longer, because it invo [...]

    16. Tim says:
      Conan with his incredible physical ability, natural leadership, and primitive goodness stalks across a vividly painted world, meeting conniving nobles, ancient evils, and sparsely clad women Another book from the cache in grandpa s attic that I recently reread I am coming to see clearly where the warps in my world view appeared.

    17. Adrian Tysoe says:
      In the end the book jackets were always so much better than the stories inside But then Frank Frazetta is pretty much the father of modern Fantasy art and confessed that he rarely read the books, only a quick summary and then ran with it.

    18. Peregrine 12 says:
      Yeah, this is one of the classics of early fantasy Who doesn t love stories about barbarians chasing the ice giant s daughter through the snow in a fit of lust and rage Unleash your inner teenage nerd

    19. Pembroke Sinclair says:
      I listened to this collection of short stories as an audio book and really enjoyed them I ve always enjoyed the Conan films, and the stories aren t any different Full of action and adventure, they are fantastic


    20. Ed Wyrd says:
      The 2nd book in the Lancer Ace Conan Contains the Howard classic Queen of the Black Coast That and the Frazette cover make this one worth the price of admission.

    21. Kimberly says:
      See my review for the book Conan That review is meant for all of the Conan the Cimmerian series of books.




    22. Joe says:
      I was 21 when I first came across these novels I devoured the first ten in the series in short order A classic and one of the all time greats Even the ones that weren t completely Howard s words.

    23. Thomas Tsuneta says:
      Love Robert E Howard s style and the Conan series,King Kull and his other Pulp Fiction he wrote This was my introduction to Sword and Sorcery fiction and it was great to re read this

    24. Capitalismissexy says:
      This whole series is awesome Looking back it is a bit sneeky of sprage n lin to mix themselves inbut in general howard is perhaps the greatest author ever.Only contenders michael moorcockjack vanceae van vogt

    25. Stuart Dean says:
      Conan continues his adventures, this time traveling to strange foreign lands including primordial Africa Unlike previous adventures the majority of his foes are pure humans, not demons and devils and monsters Along the way he finds a new obstacle to conquer, women Again and again Conan meets and subdues beautiful women, who willingly succumb to his manly embraces Nubile princesses, lost nymphs, barbarian queens, and a pirate mogul, all fall prey to Conan s rough love He never takes a woman again [...]

    26. Kevin says:
      The second of the Conan series by Robert E Howard, edited by L Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter I appear to be in the minority on this one, but I found this volume to be weaker than its predecessor The Curse of the Monolith 2.5 5 StarsAn L Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter contribution, this one begins with Conan acting incredibly stupid and out of character In previous stories, as well as later ones in this volume, Conan seems less interested in treasure and shrugs it off when it slips from his gras [...]
