"We had monsters on Atlantis, but they kept honestly to one shape. You Nephol have had advantages we haven't. But you say he can devour big beasts, big men. What teeth he must have."

Swords Against Darkness is a collection of short stories in the tradition of Robert E. Howard...

Robert E. Howard provides weird surprises in a tale of a Spanish opportunist, a "lost" Aztec city, and a centuries-old mage - in what may be the last story REH ever wrote...

The goddess of Chance gambles with a barbarian swordsman - for his life...

The Empire of Rome is threatened with disaster by a barbaric sorcerer who raises mindless killers for the earth itself...

The last survivor of Atlantis is called upon to do battle against a human-eating creature only he can brave - to save a race of giants...

Alongside other all-new tales of menace, high adventure and derring-do, written especially for this volume!

This excellent showcase for heroic fantasy fiction is certainly a must read for any fan of sword and sorcery.

Praise for Richard E. Howard:

"Howard's writing seems so highly charged with energy that it nearly gives off sparks." - Stephen King

"For stark, living fear... what other writer is even in the running." - H. P. Lovecraft

Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) ranks among the greatest writers of fantasy, action and adventure stories. The creator of Conan the Cimmerian, Kull of Atlantis, Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and many other memorable characters, he wrote well over a hundred stories for the pulp magazines of his day, and is widely regarded as the father of 'sword and sorcery.'
