Much prefer this Jordan work to the Wheel of Time. ( )

I hope you are familiar with Robert E. Howard's Conan. I love him like a brother by Crom! Contributors to the perpetuation of Conan are: Poul Anderson, Leonard Carpenter, Lin Carter, L. Sprague de Camp, Roland J. Green, John C. Hocking, Robert Jordan, Sean A. Moore, Björn Nyberg, Andrew J. Offutt, Steve Perry, John Maddox Roberts, Harry Turtledove, and Karl Edward Wagner. "The Defender" is one of Robert Jordan's. Perhaps you are familiar with his famed "Wheel of Time" series. He is very worthy of donning the Cimmerian mantle. Unfortunately, Jordan passed away September 16, 2007. The antagonist here is Albanus the Wizard. He and a small group are planning to usurp the Dragon Throne of Nemedia. Conan's friends Hordo and Karela the Red Hawk show up to help the Cimmerian out. Expect plenty of high adventure, drinking, women, violence, black magic, and all the other stuff that makes us love Conan. Conan's main love interest in this adventure, Ariane, is quite the artsy type. ( )
