    In a meteoric career that covered only a dozen years, Robert E. Howard defined the sword and sorcery genre. In doing so, he brought to life the archetypal adventurer known to millions around the world as Conan the barbarian. This collection features Howard at his finest and Conan at his most savage.

    Story

    The stories are good, they are original Conan, but the audio...for the most part the narrater is really good, but his attempts at women's voices are cringworthy. Whenever he voices a woman, it takes me right out of the story. If we can't get a woman to do those parts, it would be much better just to use his normal voice. He also irritates me with his pronunciation of the word Cimmerian (he says simmer- ri-un not si-mare-ri-an) and celts (as selts). Otherwise he is very clear and strong. Also, the chapters are listed numerically, but no hint to what stories they belong, making it hard to jump to a specific story. With some improvements I could like this format, but I still prefer my Savage Sword adaptations.
