Lord of Samarcand and Other Adventure Tales of the Old Orient
HOWARD, Robert E.; BURKE, Rusty (ed.)
Besides sword and sorcery, westerns, boxing stories, and adventure tales, Robert E. Howard also tried his hand at historical fiction. But these tales of the Crusades portray violence and tragedy, not chivalry and romance, and can hardly be called "escapist fun." While these tales may be among Howard's best, they are also his darkest. Introduction by Patrice Louinet.
