The Dark Man by Robert E. Howard

  • Apr 29, 2007
Rating:
+5
This book contains 15 thriller stories. For instance, "In the Forest of
Villefere" relates an adventure through the forest and a bloody encounter
with a wolf. A memorable quotation follows:

" I stooped, raised the dagger, then paused, looked up. The moon hovered
close to her zenith. If I slew the thing as a man its frightful spirit
would haunt me forever. I sat down waiting. The thing watched me with
flaming wolf eyes. The long wiry limbs seemed to shrink, to crook,
hair seemed to grow upon them. Fearing madness, I snatched up the thing's
own sword and hacked it to pieces. Then I flung the sword away and fled."

The work has 14 other stories including ( a partial enumeration):
o The Gods of Bal- Sagath
o The Man on the Ground
o The Dream Snake
o Old Garfield's Heart
