This anthology of essays offers a centenary tribute to Howard and his literary achievement. He was regarded as the founder of Sword & Sorcery, and his tales for the pulp magazines of his day included oriental and historical adventures, fantasy, horror, boxing stories, tall-tale Westerns, detection, and science fiction, as well as the stories of Conan the Cimmerian for which he is most widely known. He was also a gifted poet.
