Shadows In Zamboula & Other Tales Of Conan
If you've never read the original Howard stories, if you've only read the comic books or the revised pastiches of others, then these Conan adventures straight from magazines like Weird Tales will surprise you. Conan is no superhero in a fur girdle, nor is he always the nicest of gentlemen. Howard's Conan is brave, strong and cunning. But he is also greedy, rapacious, opportunistic and self-serving when the situation demands. In "Jewels of Gwahlur" he is only slightly more likeable than the people he is up against but in "Beyond the Black River" he is a savior of the settlers. In other words, he is a flexible figure who matches Howard's own adventurous imagination and not a stock character that does the same thing over and over. Also included in this eBook collection are "Red Nails" and the title story. Here are four Conan novellas as full-blooded and savage as Howard meant him to be.
