Publisher's Summary

In a meteoric career that covered only a dozen years, Robert E. Howard defined the sword and sorcery genre. In doing so, he brought to life the archetypal adventurer known to millions around the world as Conan the barbarian.This collection features Howard at his finest and Conan at his most savage. Truly heroic fantasy at its best, this volume contains "The Servants of Bit-Yakin", "Beyond the Black River", "The Black Stranger", "The Man-Eaters of Zamboula", and "Red Nails", which is perhaps Conan's most famous adventure.

Just brilliant!

The stories come to life with Todd Mclaren's narration. I like the the slightly Celtic accent he gives Conan. These are the way these stories were meant to heard.
For the life of me I cannot imagine why L.Sprague Decamp, Lin Carter or anyone else had to make ANY changes to the original stories. These are just perfect the way they are.
Wondering when the "Bloody Crown" will appear on Audible. It's already on audio and I hope they keep Mclaren as the reader.
