Haunter of the Ring Other Tales

Free read Haunter of the Ring Other Tales Read & download Ö Haunter of the Ring Other Tales Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free From the unsurpassed imagination of the creator of Conan Robert E Howard here are twenty one tales of suspense high adventure and Lovecraftian horror Foul sacrifices are made to a reptil. A very long time ago when I was still in high school Texas born Robert E Howard was one of my favorite authors and this reader could not get enough of him whether it was via such legendary characters as Conan the Cimmerian King Kull Solomon Kane or Bran Mak Morn Flash forward years than I d care to admit and one day I realized that I hadn t read a book of Howard s in all that intervening time Sure I d run across the occasional story of his now and then when your tastes run to vintage pulp fiction as do mine and you read a lot of old anthologies and Best of Weird Tales collections the man is practically unavoidable But an entire book devoted to Howardit had been eons for me Thus the collection entitled The Haunter of the Ring Other Tales a big 400 page affair from Wordsworth Editions economically priced Tales of Mystery and the Supernatural subdivision which has rescued from oblivion dozens of writers of the macabre was just too much for me to resist The book includes a scholarly essay on Howard by MJ Elliott followed by no less than 21 of Howard s best tales none of the stories deals with those four famous characters listed up top conveniently arranged in chronological order so that the reader can better appreciate Howard s increasing skill as a wordsmith as he practiced his craft Fourteen of these stories have been culled from the pages of Weird Tales although the collection does not include his first story sold to the legendary magazine Spear and Fang from the 725 issue and the rest from other competing pulp publications Strange Tales of Mystery and Terror Strange Detective Stories Super Detective Stories and Thrilling Mystery Chronologically the tales span Howard s entire writing career from 1925 until the posthumously released Pigeons From Hell in 1938 two years after Howard s suicide at age 30 And as it turns out the book is a wonderful overview of REH s enormous oeuvre I just ate this book up and absolutely loved each and every story in it Simply stated this is one helluva collectionAs for the tales themselves Howard wrote in many different genres although he almost single handedly created the genre now known as sword sorcery and many of his genres are represented here The collection kicks off with two tales dealing with a French werewolf named de Montour In the Forest of Villefore serves as merely a short introduction but its seuel Wolfshead the cover story of the 426 Weird Tales is a tremendously exciting affair that transpires in East Africa of all places and gives the reader an explanation of how werewolves arose in the first place Howard was a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs and H Rider Haggard and his story The Hyena is surely reminiscent of those two great writers He was also a fan of Fu Manchu creator Sax Rohmer and in the novella length Skull Face Howard does a Rohmer pastiche that is dead on replacing the Chinese supervillain with Kathulos a diabolical mastermind posing as an Egyptian but who is ultimately revealed to be slight spoiler ahead a survivor of the lost continent of Atlantis This pulpy tale crudely written as it is it ran as a three part serial in Weird Tales in late 1929 is still wonderfully entertaining and remarkably features the destruction of 110 of London Howard of course was also a fan of and penpals with his fellow Weird Tales contributor HP Lovecraft and his short tale Sea Curse is a very well done homage Howard was fond of referencing Lovecraft s Elder Gods such as Cthulhu in his own stories as well as Lovecraft s dreaded book The Necronomicon and likewise Lovecraft would repay the favor by mentioning Howard s imaginary evil tome Nameless Cults in his own tales The collection in uestion gives us two marvelous stories featuring Howard s infamous book The Black Stone a marvelously written piece in which an ancient Hungarian monolith gives an explorer a glimpse of a horrible worship ceremony centuries ago and its seuel of sorts The Thing on the Roof in which another explorer in the Yucatan somehow arouses the wrath of a toad shaped monstrosityIn three of the stories here men are vouchsafed a vision of one of their previous lives via a knock on the head or magical influence Thus in The Children of the Night a man sees himself as a warrior battling the inhuman inhabitants of England who predated the Picts in this story a character mentions that the three greatest horror stories ever written are Poe s The Fall of the House of Usher Arthur Machen s Black Sealand Lovecraft s The Call of Cthulhu in People of the Dark a man sees himself as Conan the Reaver NOT the same character that Howard is most famous for battling a subterranean people set against a love triangle dealing with a triple reincarnation and in the oft anthologized The Cairn on the Headland an Irishman flashes back to the time when he helped fight off the Vikings in the year 1014And speaking of stories that have been anthologized often and for good reason the collection also includes the wonderful tale The Thing From the Mound a Westernvampire hybrid story as well as the truly frightening horror masterpiece Pigeons From Hell this is the story that introduced readers to the female creature known as the zuvembie an even scarier proposition than a zombie trust me Continuing in the Western vein the collection gives us Black Wind Blowing in which a modern day Texas cowboy goes up against the monstrous cult known as the Black Brothers of Ahriman Then there is the ubercreepy tale The Fearsome Touch of Death the title story The Haunter of the Ring in which a pleasant young woman is somehow being compelled to make repeated murder attempts on her husband and The Fire of Asshurbanipal a tale very much in the sword sorcery vein the cover story of the 1236 Weird Tales in which two modern day explorers in the Arabian desert discover a lost city an invaluable gemand its hideous guardianHoward to expand his market for selling stories and on the advice of his agent Otis Adelbert Kline began in 1933 to write crime and detective fiction but always included some grisly or macabre touch of course This collection gives us four such detective tales In Black Talons an historian and a private dick team up to battle a pantherish killer from Africa Howard would write 10 stories featuring River Street detective Steve Harrison one of which is deemed lost forever and the Wordsworth collection gives us three of these wonderful tales In the senselessly titled Fangs of Gold Harrison pursues a Chinese murderer to a Southern bayou where he witnesses a shocking voodoo ceremony In Names in the Black Book Harrison and his allies including a remarkably tough Afghani go up against another Fu like mastermind Erlik Khan and his criminal horde of Mongolians And in the amazingly grisly Graveyard Rats Harrison tries to discover who has been killing four brothers one by one and almost gets eaten alive by the titular rodents in the process leading to this wonderful paragraph which practically typifies pulp fiction in a nutshell In a murdered man s grave his hand locked in the coffin of a headless corpse with a thousand grey ghoul rats ready to tear the flesh from his living frameThese three Harrison stories are so much fun incidentally that this reader is tempted now to splurge for the 40 hardcover Steve Harrison Casebook which includes all nine extant Harrison stories and is currently available from the Robert E Howard FoundationHoward of course may not be everyone s cup of tea and those readers who relish polished diction and meticulous prose a la the works of say Clark Ashton Smith and who are easily put off by blood torture violence grisly mayhem monsters battle carnage and suchlike will probably have a tough time here Howard s style is very much masculine rugged and no nonsense and his tales proceed with a virile drive and an emphasis on fast moving plot For many though including myself the man s work is irresistibly fun and this Wordsworth collection despite featuring typographical errors than any book should be allowed to have proves to be a most excellent compendium of his legendary career How nice to reacuaint myself with my old high school pal More than highly recommendedThis review by the way originally appeared on the Fantasy Literature website a most excellent destination for all fans of Robert E Howard
