I downloaded free copies of "Weird Works" Volumes 1, 2, & 4 to read the short stories that were new to me. Transpires that all the unread material were short poems, so I soon got through these books.

I'm no fan of poetry, but Howard's style is palatable. The prose tales in this collection are the main attraction and I recommend them to anyone new to the works of this great writer. ( )

This is where heroic fantasy all begins. Before Tolkein and all the others, there was a man from Texas who created worlds and populate them with fantastic characters.

If you want to see the genesis of R.E. Howard's creations, read these stories. I love this series of books.
