    Four fantastic tales of vikings, piracy and violence in the classic Howard vein These stories are set in Britain after the fall of the Roman empire Cormac is a hero in the same line as many of Howard s characters, including Kull, Bran Mak Morn and Conan He s not nearly as developed as Kull or Conan, little information is given about his past, but his great feats of cunning and combat make for an exciting read.Richard L Tierney, in his introduction, reveals that two of the stories were unfini Four fantastic tales of vikings, piracy and violence in the classic Howard vein These stories are set in Britain after the fall of the Roman empire Cormac is a hero in the same line as many of Howard s characters, including Kull, Bran Mak Morn and Conan He s not nearly as developed as Kull or Conan, little information is given about his past, but his great feats of cunning and combat make for an exciting read.Richard L Tierney, in his introduction, reveals that two of the stories were unfinished when the manuscripts were found He went ahead and wrote 700 words to finish off The Temple Of Abomination and a whopping 5,200 words to finish Tigers Of The Sea Something about this practice rubs me the wrong way, though I can understand the need to provide finished stories for publication I will say that one of the greatest pleasures for me, so far as reading Howard goes, was getting my hands on the Del Rey volumes in which his work is presented without the meddling hands of posthumous editors It s not that Tierney s contributions are drastically different, it s just that Howard s fans, including this one, want to read Howard s writing, not someone s idea of what it was supposed to be.Also, Tierney makes note of why he chose to present the stories in the order he did One reference is to the viking longship, the Raven, that Cormac and crew sale around in seeking adventure The thing is, they have the Raven in the first story Tigers Of The Sea then end up acquiring the Raven in the third story The Night Of The Wolf Am I missing something Ultimately, none of this robs from the quality of the stories Howard s ability to create thrilling, fast paced action packed tales of great heroism is unequaled

    interesante, me gustaron los personaje y el contexto en general, pero todas las aventuras eran igual Mismo plan, los descubren de la misma forma, mismo final en fin, con leer una aventura ya sabes como siguen las dem s La nica diferente fue la del templo, lo cual agradezco.

    I was pleasantly surprised This collection of short stories features a character named Cormac mac Art It was interesting and well written, if you enjoy a moment by moment, non stop action adventure story Lots of killing in these pages.Yes, the violence is over the top, the heroes are all hyper masculine, and the bad guys are everywhere and everyone , but the stories hold together alright and take us to a new environment in REH dom.I liked it, two thumbs up.

    This Cormac Mac Art book represents part of a big backlog of Robert E Howard books I ve been meaning to read This one is 4 stories in large print, padded out with a forward and some illustrations Also, two of the stories were never finished by Howard, so a Richard L Tierney apparently the co author of a Red Sonja series fills in the blanks on those The end result is a bit of a lightweight item, although Howard s rough and tumble adventures are still worth it If nothing else, these Zebr This Cormac Mac Art book represents part of a big backlog of Robert E Howard books I ve been meaning to read This one is 4 stories in large print, padded out with a forward and some illustrations Also, two of the stories were never finished by Howard, so a Richard L Tierney apparently the co author of a Red Sonja series fills in the blanks on those The end result is a bit of a lightweight item, although Howard s rough and tumble adventures are still worth it If nothing else, these Zebra editions of Howard s stuff are pretty to look at I m looking forward to asubstantial volume from the old master of Sword Sorcery in the near future

    Robert E Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E Howard s stories I am a purist when it comes to a writers works I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period Don t read this book unless you just can t find any others of Howard s unedited books to read Message me if you need a li Robert E Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E Howard s stories I am a purist when it comes to a writers works I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period Don t read this book unless you just can t find any others of Howard s unedited books to read Message me if you need a list of what is good from this awesome fantasy and action writer
