    1. What surprised me is that collectors and editors were still pulling manuscripts out of Howard's estate as late as 1977: "The Isle of the Eons", an unfinished serial, had its first appearance in this volume, and a good chunk of the remainder was copyrighted after 1960.The collection isn't strongly themed, but leaned toward the "lost city" / "lost people" / "lost island" direction, with "The Gods of Bal-Sagoth", "King of the Forgotten People", "Nekht Semerkeht", and "Isle of the Eons". Most of the [...]

    2. This collection of short stories and fragments was hit-and-miss with me. My favorites were all to do with classic, campy horror. These included:Casonetto's Last Song - cool idea that a devil-worshipping opera star can use a recorded song to curse his enemy after the star's death.Usurp the Night - the best one in this collection, in my opinion. Spooky old guy in a house at the edge of town pets and children disappearing the hero's disbelief in the obvious. The idea of a monster kept upstairs come [...]

    3. The cover might make you think sword-and-sorcery -- and, indeed, these short stories mostly employ the vividness and pacing of that genre -- but what we have here is a collection of horror stories. The settings and characters vary; there are pirates and Vikings, conquistadors and Lovecraftian horrors, ghost and lost races. A lot of fun stuff, sometimes rough around the literary edges, but no less fun for that. Ripping good stuff.

    4. Küll vanal ajal oli ikka raske ellu jääda ja veel raskem kõrgesse ikka jõuda, eriti kui olid meessoost Siit raamatust leiab lõpetatud ja lõpetamata lookesi, kus enam-vähem läbivaks on oma klanni poolt hüljatud Iirimaa osavaim kirvesõdalane Turlogh Dubh O'Brien.Ohvreid neis lugudes ei loeta, mehi langeb loogu vasakule ja paremale, kuid kõige selle juurde kuuluvad veel ka mäesügavuse labürintides surematu jumalasulase poolt loodud loom-monstrumid, manipuleerivad naised, müstiliste [...]

    5. Note: this review is for the title story alone.Turlogh Dubh O'Brien is an Irish Gael who ends up shipwrecked on an island with a Saxon-turned-Viking. I’m guessing this is set in the 900s, though it may be the early 1000s. It’s definitely after Alfred the Great but before William the Conqueror’s time. Whenever it is, this reads as a supernatural historical work of fiction.The gods of Bal-Sagoth are not necessarily gods, but are only thought to be so. The Gael and Saxon discover a beautiful [...]

    6. The trouble with picking up an anthology of REH stories is that I've read most of the stories in them and that's true of this anthology published in 1979. But it is good to revisit some of REH's stories to see how an adventure story should be done. The title story, "The Gods of Bal-Sagoth," is one of Howard's best ones and this may be the fourth time I read it.I had read "The Shadow of the Beast" before but I didn't remember it very well. It's a great haunted house story and my favorite in this [...]

    7. 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 [...]

    8. Terasest skrootumiga kangelased raiumas teed läbi põhjalaste ja teiste tõbraste. Viikingitest hakkas lõpus lausa kahju. Howard paneb ikka mõnuga otse, puhastverd võitmatud aarialased, alatud moslemid ja segased punased. Korduvad sõnad nagu kohutavalt suur, võimas, tohutu, vägev Ei, vinge värk!"Te ei kahetseks, kui sooviksite meiega ühineda, et anda hoop moslemitele kristliku maailma nimel."

    9. Some truly good horror stories, along with a few unfinished pieces. The collection isn't well-rounded as a result. The Baen Howard library has more focussed collections of his horror and fantasy tales.
