Inhaltsangabe: FROM THE DUST JACKET FLAP: "Howard has been described by H. P. Lovecraft as a master of 'description of vast megalithic cities of the elder world, around whose dark towers and labyrinthine nether vaults cling an aura of pre-human fear and necromancy which no other writer could duplicate.' Apart from the full-length novel Skull-Face, perhaps the best Howard ever wrote, this magnificent selection contains twenty-one stories, the rare article, The Hyborian Age, two poems and appreciations by E. Hoffmann Price and Lovecraft. Here are such well-known stories as Worms of the Earth, The Black Stone, Wolfshead, Kings of the Night, and Valley of the Worm. There are also lesser-known tales such as Rattle of Bones, The Cairn on the Headland, and A Man-Eating Leopard. What August Derleth described as Howard's 'faculty for telling stories . . . equaled by few of his contemporaries' is amply demonstrated."
