I'm reviewing the short story of 'The Valley of the Worm' and not a collection by that name.

Howard presents another of his reincarnation tales, this time his main character recalls a previous life, harking *way* back before detailed historical records.

A fearless warrior battles men, a sabre-tooth tiger, a huge snake, and a vile monstrosity that can at best be compared to a gigantic worm.

I don't rate this as one of Howard's finest short stories but it was still worth reading. ( )
