Product Description

About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

Jordon at his Conan best. One of the only other writers capable of Howards breath taking violence. Get reading and see why the movies fall short.

A decent addition to the Conan saga.
Not quite as good as Howard but a good read none the less.

It is interesting to view different writers on the same subject.

Format: Hardcover
Conan this time has three women to deal with, although the first, a young nobleman reduced to trying out trulldom is easy, once he finds her employment.

The high priestess of a demon lord he is working for and does not know it is far worse.

Karela the Red Hawk just likes to compare him to any dirty ugly animal she can think of because she likes him so much and doesn't know whether to shag him or stab him.

All this on top of leading a Free Company.
