ACTION AND ADVENTURE, FROM PRE-HISTORIC TIMES TO MODERN DAY....
The latest entry in NUELOW Games' Robert E. Howard Collection series is something of a sampler. While the four classic pulp fiction tales featured in the book all take place in the Middle East or Asia, they show the variety in the types of stories that Howard wrote. While he could always be relied on for thunderous action, Howard wrote everything from fantasy, to historical fiction, to dark horror, and to outrageous comedy. In this book, you’ll get a taste of it all, against the dusty and exotic locales of the Middle East and Afghanistan, while moving through the ages from ancient times to the early 20th Century.
Included are the following short stories:
"The House of Arabu": A Greek mercenary in the service of a Sumerian king is targeted for death by the demoness Lilitu.
"Gates of Empire": A rogue on the run bumbles his way to becoming an instrument of Fate during the time of the Crusades.
"The Voice of El-Lil": A pair of explorers find danger and romance in a lost city.
"The Fire of Asshurbanipal": An American adventurer and his Afghani friend encounter threats from both monsters and men while searching for a legendary treasure.
