An Irish-American warrior passes himself of as a Kurd and sets out to steal the treasure of Tartary.

This is one of Robert E, Howard's fast-paced short stories, featuring lots of fights and sliced entrails. Not one of his best works, in my opinion, as it somehow lacks substance. It seemed all hell and no notion.

The writing style is top notch, like one would expect from Mr Howard.

A superb unedited collection of Howard's historical action stories. No one writes action like Howard, he sweeps you up and carries you along to the end of each story. Highly recommended
