3.0 out of 5 stars best of the lot, April 10 2003
a good book, the greatest by howard's "successors". great opening. good battle descriptions. but there were also moments where nothimg much happened, and some things didn't feel so natural. but a good book, mind you.

2.0 out of 5 stars artificial conan story?, April 10 2003
i think this is actually the worst conan-story i have read. the plot didn't grab me, seemed to artificial to me. melodramatic. so the rest seemed pretty dull to me too. i never really believed in this story, which was carried out in a dull way too. not much suspence

2.0 out of 5 stars no loutus dream, April 10 2003
i lie howard's stories. ut his "successors"..... Well, this could actually have been good. good descriptions and suspenceful at times. but there are too many pages where nothing happens. and it is not necessary to use so much time to explain the intrigue through lengthy dialogue, we get it. and towards the end, it doesn't deliver. the ending should have been better and more a natural link to the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars police is not obeying enough rules, April 9 2003
This review is from: Police!!! (Paperback)
original and inventive, as always. the stories worked better than usually by the author. some with real interesting concepts. but he never knows how to stick only to the story, to obey sensible literal rules, how to form the stories in a sensible way.

2.0 out of 5 stars truly weird, April 9 2003
very inventive. very original. and ha sure knows how to keep the reader from knowing what's going on. but he is too anarchicc in style, suddenly taking a long path AWAY from the horror. for example, he suddenly creates a love story in the middle of building a horror story with great promise. he can make a story become an unclear blur. he doesn't obey any rules, and it does not suit the stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars i can sing along, April 9 2003
not bad. a pretty obvious one, but well written, by Burleson. Nicoll has a well written one, but very short. D'amassa has an interesting one. Lumley's spaghetti is the longest. an interesting pulpish haunted house- story. worth a read, but is perhaps lacking real greatness

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a read, but disappointing, April 9 2003
this is a good collection, consisting of many of howard's stories (some don't belong here). howard is always great at combat descriptions and describing man's instinct. the stories here are mostly inspired by things Howard has read. howard can't manage to create the stories as well as usually, also being very uninventive and unoriginal at times. some of the stories were only vaguely interesting. beyond the borders was a better collection

5.0 out of 5 stars ignore the illustration!, April 9 2003
this is a great collection of horror stories. perhaps not particularly well invented or original, but excellently written, good descriptions of the primal fear in man, great descriptions, and the suspence never lacking.

5.0 out of 5 stars true Art, April 9 2003
howard is forever the mater of describing battles. and in this book it's battles, battles, battles. filled with action. man slashes man. great descriptions. great writing. great......great. men fights men. blood floats.

3.0 out of 5 stars i have seen the wind, and it's cold enough for me, April 9 2003
This review is from: The Ithaqua Cycle (Paperback)
this book opens with blackwood's great story: the wendigo. B is the master of the setting, noone can create the background and atmosphere like him. a very well written story from Brennan here. and Meloff's story is also an interesting read. derleth is at his best here. i don''t care that much for the guy, have never considered him to be HPL's great successor or anything, but he knows how to write, and i have always considered his story about Ithaqua to be his best contribution. the rest of the stories are well written. i don't think any of chaosium's anthologies contains of so much good writing than this. but good is not great. and the rest of the stories never turns out to be really good. the suspence killed by irrelevant writing going on for too long, mostly. sad. but the book is still wort reading
