With Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard created more than the
greatest action hero of the twentieth century--he also launched a
genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery. But Conan wasn't
the first archetypal
Conan the Cimmerian--the boy-thief who became a mercenary, who fought and loved his way across fabled lands to become King of Aquilonia. Neither supernatural fiends nor demonic sorcery could oppose the barbarian warrior as he wielded his mighty sword and dispatched his enemies to a bloody doom on the battlefields of the legendary Hyborian age. Collected here in the chronological order they were first published are Robert E. Howard's definitive stories of Conan, exactly as he wrote them. A foreword and afterword by Stephen Jones provide a biography of Howard along with a comprehensive overview of his writing and background on the world of pulp fiction. World Fantasy Award-nominee Les Edwards contributes a black and white frontispiece, along with a gold embossed work on the leather-style cover, while Hugo Award- and Bram Stoker Award-winning editor and author Stephen Jones provides an insightful afterword.
BY CROM! Robert E. Howard's famous Cimmerian UNCENSORED! Discover the true Conan, unrestrained, violent, and sexual. Read the story as he intended! The Cimmerian Vol 2 includes two complete stories, The People of The Black Circle, and The Frost-Giant's Daughter, plus bonus material, including the original prose stories, in one hardcover collection! In The People of the Black Circle, the king has just died in the kingdom of Vendhya, struck down by the spells of the black prophets of Yimsha. The king's sister, Yasmina, decides to avenge him...and contacts Conan, then chief of the Afghuli tribe. But several of Conan's warriors have just been killed by the men of the kingdom of Vendhya, further complicating the matter. The princess thought she could use the Cimmerian, but rather it is she who will serve his interests... Sylvain Runberg and prodigious designer/illustrator Jae Kwang Park adapt one of the most ambitious and complex Conan stories of Robert E. Howard. An adventure where epic battles, witchcraft and plots mingle in a mystical and scary Orient. Where revenge is an art... In The Frost-Giant's Daughter, Conan, the only survivor of a ferocious battle, sits in the midst of a bloodstained snow field. When the fight is over, the Cimmerian suddenly finds himself overcome with deep weariness and disgust. Until the moment he meets a redheaded woman of supernatural beauty, blinding like the glow of the sun on the snow. Moved by a burning desire, Conan decides to follow her but finds himself caught in a trap, attacked by two titans. In his ardor, he was not suspicious...he did not imagine for a second that his bride was none other than Ymir's own daughter: the frost-giant! A mythical tale both in both form and substance, The Frost-Giant's Daughter is masterfully adapted by Robin Recht, who manages to capture the essence of this whirlwind tale of violent desire...a true love trap in which the force of will of the Cimmerian is put to the test.

Robert E. Howard is famous for creating such immortal heroes as
Conan the Cimmerian, Solomon Kane, and Bran Mak Morn. Less
well-known but equally extraordinary are his non-fantasy adventure
stories set in the Middle East and featuring such two-fisted heroes
as Francis Xavier Gordon--known as "El Borak"--Kirby O'Donnell, and
Steve Clarney. This trio of hard-fighting Americans, civilized men
with more than a touch of the primordial in their veins, marked a
new direction for Howard's writing, and new territory for his
genius to conquer.
In his hugely influential and tempestuous career, Robert E. Howard
created the genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery-and
brought to life one of fantasy's boldest and most enduring figures:
Conan the Cimmerian-reaver, slayer, barbarian, king.
Conan the Barbarian is one of the most famed figures in fantasy fiction. With the success of the new film starring Jason Momoa and Ron Perlman, the time is right to revisit Robert E. Howard's classic stories. Presented in chronological order over three books, all of Conan's life is here, from his wild adventures as a youth to the final tale of Conan the King. Howard's tales of the wanderer, the reaver, the thief, the Barbarian have never been surpassed. In this volume Conan learns the secrets of THE SCARLET CITADEL and THE HOUR OF THE DRAGON, and meets THE BLACK STRANGER and THE PHOENIX ON THE SWORD. A selection of other tales and fragments round out this new collection of a classic character.
