Hours of the Dragon [The Weird Works of Robert E. Howard Vol. 8]
In most of the Conan stories of Robert E. Howard, we get to see only little slivers at a time of his self-created fictional world, the "Hyborian Age."

To the dismay of many fans, REH only wrote this one novel featuring the Hyborian Age. What with the British publisher fail­ing on him, and REH being redu... more info>>

The Apparition in the Prize Ring
"The Apparition in the Prize Ring" was published in Ghost Stories in 1929. This pulp was a little different from most.

REH sold them a weird boxing story, writing as John Taverel, the mythical manager of a mythical black fighter named Ace Jessel. This is one of the few stories where the protaganist is black, as is the antagonist. For those curious about REH's views on race,... more info>>
