Book Haul/Spotlight: Conan- The Road of Kings by Karl Edward Wagner

 

 

 

I have been adding many new books to my collection recently. My interest in reading has shifted to older books and authors. So I thought instead of just a simple book haul post I would do more of a spotlight/introduction post as well. So in the post below you will not only find the usual book haul photo’s, but book and author info as well. I hope you will take the time to look it over and maybe take a chance at checking out books and authors that you may have forgot about or discover in these post!

I found this copy on a Instagram/Facebook page I follow. Collectible Science Fiction were great to work with, fair prices, and it didn’t take forever to get my books. They have great Vintage paperbacks, you should go check them out.

Conan- The Road of Kings, Bantam Books edition (1979)

by Karl Edward Wagner

Cover art Bob Larkin

Facing the gallows for defending his honor-by killing the captain of the guard-the mighty Conan jumps feet first into a rescue attempt of one of his fellow prisoners. When Conan learns his rescuers are the daring Rebels of the White Rose, he joins their blood-soaked insurrection.

But Conan’s struggles are only beginning, for the road to the throne is defended by the Final Guard–indestructible warriors made of stone. Conan must draw steel against these indomitable foes and pray that Krom will guide his blade both strong and true.

He wrote numerous dark fantasy and horror stories. As an editor, he created a three-volume set of Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian fiction restored to its original form as written, and edited the long-running and genre-defining The Year’s Best Horror Stories series for DAW Books. His Carcosa publishing company issued four volumes of the best stories by some of the major authors of the so-called Golden Age pulp magazines.
