This early work by Robert E. Howard was originally published in the 1932 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Sowers of Thunder' is one of Howard's stories set during the Crusades and is a tale of heroism and tragedy. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard - a bookish and somewhat introverted child - was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece - a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' - for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.… (mere)

Some good epic fantasy from the Father of Sword & Sorcery!!! ( )
  Andy_DiMartino | Nov 24, 2020 |
This is the first edition I bought new & it is now falling apart. The same 4 excellent historical, sword swinging stories as other editions & some excellent pen & ink artwork that was very distracting. I almost took off a star for it. I LIKE it, but I don't like where it was placed. All too often it's in the middle of sentences so that there is a word or two on either side. Other pictures were big enough that one margin would have a single word per line running down the side. Yuck!!!

The four stories are:
"The Lion of Tiberias"
"The Sowers of the Thunder"
"Lord of Samarcand"
"The Shadow of the Vulture" has Red Sonya in it. It's the only original Howard story I've read featuring her that I can think of.

All the stories feature famous figures in turbulent historical times & feature heroic deeds. No sorcery or fantastic elements, unless you count their prowess & endurance. Some of his best stories ever. ( )
