“Howard’s writing seems so highly charged that it nearly gives off sparks.” -–STEPHEN KING
“I adore these books. Howard had a gritty, vibrant style–broadsword writing that cut its way to the heart, with heroes who are truly larger than life. I heartily recommend them to anyone who loves fantasy.” –DAVID GEMMELL, Author of Legend and White Wolf
“The voice of Robert E. Howard still resonates after decades with readers– equal parts ringing steel, thunderous horse hooves, and spattered blood. Far from being a stereotype, his creation of Conan is the high heroic adventurer. His raw muscle and sinews, boiling temper, and lusty laughs are the gauge by which all modern heroes must be measured.” – –ERIC NYLUND, Author of Halo: The Fall of Reach and Signal to Noise
“That teller of marvelous tales, Robert Howard, did indeed create a giant [Conan] in whose shadow other ‘hero tales’ must stand.” -–JOHN JAKES, New York Times bestselling author of the North and South trilogy
“For stark, living fear . . . What other writer is even in the running with Robert E. Howard?” –H. P. LOVECRAFT
The Conan classic first published in Weird Tales in August 1934.
In "The Devil in Iron", Conan is tricked by the evil Jehungir Agha into chasing the lovely Octavia to the island of Xapur -- Octavia having been forced to make goo-goo eyes at the barbarian, to inflame his passion -- never a tough thing to do. On the island, Jehungir means to hunt Conan down like an animal. Meanwhile, an evil wizard/demon, Khosatral Khel, has awoken on Xapur and magically resurrected an ancient city, complete with its dreamy citizens. The wizard develops a keen interest in Octavia, a giant snake puts in an appearance and...oh yes, the wizard literally has pects like iron, an iron-fleshed monstrosity that is Khosatral Khel.
