This goes for all of Howard's other works as well:
Fabulous reads for fellow enthusiasts of high adventure. Not all of Howard's works are genius by any means (he was writing during the Depression, when his next meal depended on sales). Admittedly, there are racist and sexist elements in many of his works (it was the 30's). But for sheer, lurid descriptions no one else compares. Like Tolkien, Howard crafted an entire world, a mythologcial ancient earth "between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis... and the rise of the sons of Aryas," and populated it with amazing, fantasic elements. Enjoy, if you dare!
