The Conan stories by Robert E. Howard are some of the first and the best in the Heroic Fantasy / Swords and Sorcery genres.

I like this version of Conan. It is not great literature but it is a great read. No political correctness making the stories appear stiff and silly and artificial. Read morePublished 6 months ago by DesertHowler
