This wonderful collection of some of Robert E. Howard's works has been selected and is introduced by John Clute. Released as a Penguin "Modern Classic" - which gives the works therein a gravitas that might surprise those original fans of the old pulp magazines, Heroes in the Wind: From Kull to Conan is a paperback edition.
"Howard's swashbuckling fantasy stories feature the adventures of the enigmatic Conan: a free barbarian from distant Cimmeria who ventures into the splendid kingdoms of the south to find his fortune in the lost eons of the Hyborian Age between the sinking of Kull's Atlantis and the dawn of history. Cunning thief, captain of mercenaries and corsairs, lover of sultry temptresses, Conan follows his destiny into demon-haunted treasure towers and across the plains of death. And at last, like Kull before him, he slashes his name across the scrolls of royalty as King Conan, usurper-lord of imperial Aquilonia."
