  • This is one of the best Conan books I have the Lancer edition from the 60 s Excellent cover art by Frazetta This contains 3 stories that sum up Conan very well.

  • This collection of original CONAN stories is okay, but my favorite is still CONAN THE FREEBOOTER The problem with the stories in this volume is that there isn t very much romance, and there s a certain cheesiness to the cardboard backgrounds Here s Conan in the jungles, fighting stereotypical black natives right out of TARZAN Here s Conan in the lost cities of some sort of Mayan race, and the brown skinned natives are all crazy fanatics Then the priest turns up, and he s got some kind of electri [...]

  • Book 7 in my re read of the Conan series Spoilers ahead Red NailsI had read an assortment of Conan stories as a kid, and this is one I remember vividly, especially this passage from the beginning where Conan and a busty, blond pirate named Valeria are in a dense forest and encounter a prehistoric reptile Through the thicket was thrust a head of nightmare and lunacy Grinning jaws bared rows of dripping yellow tusks above the yawning mouth wrinkled a saurian like snout Huge eyes, like those of a p [...]

  • Robert E Howard was a master fantasy writer,one of the greatest and perhaps most unjustly neglected architects of the genre For me this volume demonstrates that he is infinitely superior to any of the later writers who chose to take up the sword of his enduring creation, Conan.I found the style of these stories, in particular the deliciously dark Red Nails , an absolute treat if you like it you should check out the vintage 1936 Margaret Brundage illustration from the cover of Weird Tales on Howa [...]

  • CONAN THE WARRIOR is a book in the long running anthology series, edited by L Sprague de Camp Thankfully, I don t think the editor interfered with these tales, and if he did it isn t evident.Each of the stories is an example of the author at the top of his game RED NAILS is the archetypal Conan adventure there s danger, conflict and intrigue on every one of the 80 pages Super plot elements include a battle with a ferocious dragon, deadly foreign fighters, the mysterious Burning Skull, an ageless [...]

  • Ah, Conan I have always liked Conan, and I haven t been disappointed in any of the original Conan books so far Concerning Conan the Warrior , I liked all three stories presented in the book Red Nails , Jewels of Gwahlur , and Beyond the Black River In Red Nails , Conan and a pirate woman by the name of Valeria find themselves fighting a large dragon before entering an abandoned looking city where there s a feud going on between two warring factions Both sides are out to completely decimate each [...]

  • Pasado por el tamiz de Sprague De Camp, Conan vaga alquilando su espada en historias que cautivan en su sobrecogedora sencillez Aventuras p gina tras p gina, que no es poco decir.

  • Yes, I m a closet Conan fan and a big one at that although this book has been sitting in my BlackBerry for maybe over a year now It is finally read.

  • Red Nails Tauted by many as REH s best Conan story, I thought it s great but not nearly my favorite story at all It s another story of Conan coming across another ancient lost town with strange people fighting amongst themselves in an ancestral feud And some ancient wizard is involved And Conan gets the girl at the end I make it sound clich but it is greatly written in the REH style Jewels of Gwahlur This one I liked a little bit less than REH s usual masterpieces Because it has some elements of [...]

  • The continuing adventures of Robert Howard s legendary character Conan the Barbarian, here repackaged by L Sprague deCamp Conan the Warrior only contains three Conan short stories, but all three are Robert Howard originals and two of them, Red Nails and The Jewels of Gwahlur also sometimes titled The Servants of Bit Yakin are among Howard s very best Red Nails, in fact, is my personal favorite out of all Howard s Conan stories, and it was the last one that he wrote before he died The fact that t [...]

  • Libro de Howard que contiene 3 relatos, el primero, Clavos Rojos, es uno de los mas famosos ya que introduce al personaje Valeria , la guerrera pirata rubia que tanto se populariz el pel cula Conan el Barbaro la original , los otros dos relatos son igualmente interesantes, el ltimo te deja una sensacion de curiosidad por lo que puede venir, cosa que Howard no suele hacer, sus relatos suelen ser bastante autoconclusos.Le pongo 5 estrellas como a todos, me encanta este personaje.

  • I really enjoyed this series and enjoyed the overall arc and intention of the project However, there is a distinct difference between Howard s stories and the stories of Lin Carter and L Sprague de Camp Sometimes there s simply no making up for talent and Robert E Howard had a talent for telling stories This book is all Howard, all of the time and Red Nails may be Conan s finest hour.

  • Robert Howard invented the barbarian sword sorcery style of Fantasy writing, and no one has surpassed him at writing it Howard s Conan is a primal entity, almost animal than man Many writers have carried on the stories of Conan with mixed results It is best to seek out the volumes that collect only the Howard stories, not all the later continuations.

  • I have a soft spot in my heart for pre WWII pulp fiction, particularly Robert E Howard s Conan stories Although not exactly high literature, Howard knows how to spin a fun and entertaining yarn It s a shame he didn t live longer.

  • Sin duda un excelente libro, me gust mucho solo que el primer relato Clavos Rojos se vuelve un poco desesperante ya que todo transcurre en una ciudad totalmente techada y entre puertas y pasillos Es como estar jugando Resident Evil sin saber bien por donde ir.

  • The master of Sword and Sorcery Great stories that scare and delight a hero, who s strength and cunning go unrivaled, and a good dollop of other world building that make all Conan s novels great reads.

  • I was 21 when I first came across these novels I devoured the first ten in the series in short order A classic and one of the all time greats Even the ones that weren t completely Howard s words.

  • The books I d take to a desert island.The books I d save from a house on fire.The books I read over and over.The best of the best.

  • this was a re readt read this in the 1970 s Conan stories are timeless adventure Howard s writing is very entertaining.
