If you are looking for a lot of good work from Robert E Howard, and enjoy a little boxing, horror, and westerns, then this book is the one for you. Robert E. Howard is a little more multi-dimensional than simple sword and sorcery, but most of his work has recurring themes which a lot of people find appealing. Reading this omnibus will give you a greater insight into the man who created Conan the Cimmerian, by understanding his literature in the broader sense.
While this book does sport a navigable index, it is not accessible from anywhere in the book. You have to go the beginning of the book, go over the rather long index, and use the hyperlinks that are present there to skip to other chapters (see note) or stories in the book. Actually, you cannot get to specific chapters within different stories unless you mark them yourself. The index is based on stories, and most all of the stories have multiple chapters.
For this reason, I deduct a star, because an omnibus of this enormous size needs easy navigation, and I found the navigation adequate, but lacking. I realize that the price might go up with a full navigatable index that is accessible from within the book, but I would gladly pay up to $5 more for such a feature.
This collection includes western--humorous and otherwise--Solomon Kane stories, horror, historical adventure, Kul, Bran Mak Morn, Cormac FitzGeoffrey, boxing stories, and a substantial majority of the Conan tales. Other than his poetry, you'll have to dig a bit to find Howard material not represented.Contents include at least two novels--"Hour of the Dragon" and "Almuric"--and a great many novellas any one of which would be worth the purchase price.
