"The cliffs rose sheer from the jungle, towering ramparts of stone that glinted jade-blue and dull crimson in the rising sun, and curved away and away to east and west above the waving emerald ocean of fronds and leaves. It looked insurmountable, that giant palisade with its sheer curtains of solid rock in which bits of quartz winked dazzlingly in the sunlight. But the man ...more

Just a little snack of a book, but quite entertaining, a fast-paced adventure with Egyptian-type gods, priceless jewels, and a manly hero to swan around fighting and rescuing a buxom beauty.

This is my first introduction to the Conan the Cimmerion (aka. Barbarian) stories. It was fun, though it seemed somewhat formulaic. Some phrases were overused, but as I said, this is still a fun short story. If some quotes from Fritz Leiber are anything to go by, then this is certainly not the best in the series, offering promise for future reading of Howard's writing. As such, I intend to read more of his stories.
As for Phil Chenevert's reading of the story, I think that he did pretty well wit

It's hard to give Howard's original Conan stories less than five stars.
Perry Whitford
Driven solely by a thief's desire to get his muscle-bound mitts upon the fabled Teeth of Gwahlur, priceless jewels wrenched from 'the king of darkness, in the birth of the world', then lost for centuries, hidden within an ancient valley inside an unscalable mountain somewhere in the kingdom of Keshan, Conan makes an audacious play to ingratiate himself with those who hold the secret.
But he's not the only one that wants the jewels, and he soon finds himself outflanked by competitors with more pol

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 ...more
