Skull-Face is a fantasy novella by American writer Robert E. Howard, which appeared as a serial in Weird Tales, beginning in October 1929, and ending in December, 1929.

The story is clearly influenced by Sax Rohmer’s opus Fu Manchu but substitutes the main Asian villain with a resuscitated Atlantean necromancer (similar to Kull’s bit character Thulsa Doom) sitting at the center of a web of crime and intrigue meant to end White/Western world domination with the help of Asian/semite/African peoples and to re-instate surviving Atlanteans (said to lie dormant in submerged sarcophagi) as the new ruling elite.
