About The Conan Collection

Enter a world of decadent civilizations peopled by savage barbarians, where only a man of gigantic strength and ability and living by his own code of honor can stay alive. This is Conan's world as envisioned by his creator, Robert E. Howard. Join Conan as he rides with his wild henchmen in search of half-forgotten treasure guarded by devils from the darkest pits; as he swings his mighty broadsword, or snatches a kiss from a willing maiden; as he faces wizards able to call up monstrosities from beyond. The Conan Collection is comprised of only Robert E. Howard written works, not those of subsequent authors who continued the saga. The collection includes one novel, "The Hour of the Dragon" and six long stories: "Rogues in the House," "Shadows in Zamboula," "The Castle of Terror," "The Devil in Iron" and "The Tower of the Elephant." His sword rose and fell, a frosty arc in the moon, showeringblood 
as it split misshapen heads, clove shambling bodies.
Conan - The Hour of the Dragon
Robert E. Howard Robert E. Howard was born in 1906 in west Texas, and spent much of his life,including his final years, in tiny Cross Plains, Texas. An only child, he wasinordinately close to his mother. As a teenager, Howard was viewed as aneccentric due to his love of books, and his library included works by ArthurConan Doyle, Jack London, Mark Twain,  Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. Howard decided to be a writer at a young age, and had his first storypublished in the "pulp" Weird Tales when he was 21. He wasconsidered adream come true for pulp editors because of his ability to both create compellingcharacters and write in multiple genres. In 1930, Weird Tales published H.P.Lovecraft's ?The Rats in the Walls? and Howard wrote to the magazine'seditor praising the story. When the editor forwarded Howard's letter on toLovecraft thus began one history's truly weird correspondences. For the next sixyears, Howard and Lovecraft debated civilization versus barbarism, the mentalversus the physical, and art versus commerce.In 1935, Howard's mother began a slow,inexorable slide toward death from tuberculosis, and Howard announced his long-standing plan not to outlive his mother. When she entered herfinal coma on the June 8, 1936, Howard asked the doctor attending her whetherthere was any chance of her recovering. When told there wasn't, Howard went tohis room and composed this poem: "All fled, all done. So lift me on thepyre. The feast is over. And the lamps expire," got into his car, and shothimself in the right temple. Both Howard and his mother were buried onJune 14th; Robert E. Howard was 30 years old.To read this collection on your Symbian-based phone, you must first install an ebook reader. We suggest Mobipocket Reader, which you can download for free from their website.
