Description:

"I do you a great honor, Mr. Costigan; among a very few, even of my own servants, you may say that you saw my face and lived. I think you will be more useful to me living than dead."


While trying to silence the demons he carried with him from the battlefields of World War One, Stephen Costigan becomes hopelessly addicted to hashish. As he wastes away in a Limehouse drug den, a beautiful woman of mystery draws him into the schemes of a being who may be older than history itself.

But Stephen Costigan is no one's pawn, and he soon allies himself with the British Intelligence Service to defeat the menace that is Skull-Face and regain his independence... or die trying.

Skull-Face is a classic adventure tale from Robert E. Howard, the creator of such legendary pulp fiction heroes as Conan, Solomon Kane, and King Kull. Originally serialized in 1929 in the pages of Weird Tales magazine, it's Howard's take on the "Yellow Peril" genre--an adventure fiction subgenre that gave rise to Sax Rhomer's immortal Fu Manchu--as well as his spin on the "truth' behind H.P. Lovecraft's legendary Elder Gods. It's a tale worth reading for lovers of adventure yarns, classic pulp fiction, and those interested in the greater body of literature that evolved from H.P. Lovecraft's horror stories.

Interesting Trivia: The "Stephen Costigan" character in Skull-Face is distinctly different from the "Steve Costigan" character featured in a score of humorous short stories (also available from NUELOW in Fists of Foolishness and Shanghaied Mitts). Both characters first saw print in 1929, with "Steve Costigan" debuting in the July issue of Fight Stories, and "Stephen Costigan" first showing up in the October issue of Weird Tales.

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
