    1. Chaosium collection of Robert E Howard stories Some of the stories are only tenuously connected to the Mythos There are a few dogs in here, literally in the case of The Hoofed Thing which is a Lovecraft story where the hero punches the monster in the face instead of fainting That said there are a lot of stand out stories in here and Price does his usual good job of putting the stories in context and connecting them with their influences 12 8 2012 The Black Stone Robert E Howard Nameless CultsA m [...]

    2. Best known for the creation of Conan I actually only know the films and some comics and Solomon Kane, this book compiles a set of stories mostly linked with the horror genre.The stories are influenced by Lovecraft s works a friend fo Howard and you can see that in some references or atmospheres.However, I never felt the same unease that Lovecraft s work had while reading this book It resembled a adventure book with some occult background Unlike Lovecraft s characters, Howard s main leads were m [...]

    3. An excellent collection of the Howard stories related to H P Lovecraft s mythos I am usually a fan of Howard s action stories but these were very good reads Very recommended

    4. Robert E Howard found a successful formula in writing, as he did with his Conan the Barbarian stories, and stuck with it He either placed his characters directly in a barbaric past or his heroes were modern men that fell asleep only to mysteriously be transported in body and in time to that savage time This is pulp fiction at its unsurprising finest For as predictable a writer as Howard was, these stories are entertaining and they are short enough to hold the readers interest The Cthulhu Lovecra [...]

    5. Yuck If you can get past the hideously ugly cover you ll find some incredible stories in a Lovecraftian vein Except there s a big difference The typical Lovecraft protagonist will stumble upon whatever horror awaits and then, turning spineless, waits for the inevitable doom Not so with Howard His heroes may go down, but they go down fighting And win or lose, Cthulhu and his cohorts find it s no cakewalk combating a Howard hero I admire Lovecraft, but I absolutely love Howard s take on the subjec [...]

    6. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian, wrote many non Conan stories, some of adventure and some of the supernatural Several are collected here Despite the subtitle, the Cthulhu connections are often quite thin often, the stories feel vaguely Lovecraftian, though not written in Lovecraft s wordy and poetic style, but contain very little aside from a mention or two of a mythos name to directly tie them to the Cthulhu stories Still, most of these are worth reading, especially for fans of the the [...]

    7. A good selection of stories, although there are definitely some repeats if you have some of Howard s other horror related collections There are also some fragments that Howard never finished that other authors finish These stories are entertaining enough, but they are not the same, and helps illustrate how unique of a voice Howard had.

    8. Robert E Howard is best known today for creating the sword wielding barbarian Conan, but what many people forget is that he was a close friend of H P Lovecraft and a major influence on the development of the latter s Cthulhu Mythos.Read

    9. The collected Cthulhu mythos stories from the man who brought you Conan Very approachable and particularly entertaining group of stories.
