Reseña del editor:

Here are Howard's greatest horror tales, all in their original, definitive versions. Some of Howard's best-known characters-Solomon Kane, Bran Mak Morn, and sailor Steve Costigan among them-roam the forbidding locales of the author's fevered imagination, from the swamps and bayous of the Deep South to the fiend-haunted woods outside Paris to remote jungles in Africa.
The collection includes Howard's masterpiece -Pigeons from Hell, - which Stephen King calls -one of the finest horror stories of [the twentieth] century, - a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation-and into the maw of its fatal secret. In -Black Canaan- even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers-and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. In these and other lavishly illustrated classics, such as the revenge nightmare -Worms of the Earth- and -The Cairn on the Headland, - Howard spins tales of unrelenting terror, the legacy of one of the world's great masters of the macabre.
