The Zebra paperback edition. Black Vulmea’s vengeance is a collection of three adventure short stories about pirates by Robert E. Howard. It was first published in 1976 by Donald M. Grant, Publisher, Inc. in an edition of 2,750 copies. The title story first appeared in the magazine Golden Fleece in 1938. This book is based on the Grant 1976 hardcover edition.

“Swords of the Red Brotherhood”, set in a historical framework, is a recognizable variant of “The Black Stranger”, taking place in the fictional fantasy world of Conan The Barbarian.

The title story features Terence Vulmea, aka Black Vulmea, who was born a 17th-century Irish peasant and carried his vendetta with the English oppressors of his country to the waters of the Caribbean. He is one of Robert E. Howard’s lesser known characters; more of his exploits were later added by David C. Smith.
