El Borak and Other Desert Adventures | [Robert E. Howard]

El Borak and Other Desert Adventures

Robert E. Howard is famous for creating such immortal heroes as Conan the Cimmerian, Solomon Kane, and Bran Mak Morn. Less well-known but equally extraordinary are his non-fantasy adventure stories set in the Middle East and featuring such two-fisted heroes as Francis Xavier Gordon, known as "El Borak", Kirby O'Donnell, and Steve Clarney. This trio of hard-fighting Americans, civilized men with more than a touch of the primordial in their veins, marked a new direction for Howard's writing.

Publisher's Summary

Robert E. Howard is famous for creating such immortal heroes as Conan the Cimmerian, Solomon Kane, and Bran Mak Morn. Less well-known but equally extraordinary are his non-fantasy adventure stories set in the Middle East and featuring such two-fisted heroes as Francis Xavier Gordon, known as "El Borak", Kirby O'Donnell, and Steve Clarney. This trio of hard-fighting Americans, civilized men with more than a touch of the primordial in their veins, marked a new direction for Howard's writing and new territory for his genius to conquer.

The wily Texan El Borak, a hardened fighter who stalks the sandscapes of Afghanistan like a vengeful wolf, is rivaled among Howard's creations only by Conan himself. In such classic tales as "The Daughter of Erlik Khan", "Three-Bladed Doom", and "Sons of the Hawk", Howard proves himself once again a master of action, and with plenty of eerie atmosphere his plotting becomes tighter and twistier than ever, resulting in stories worthy of comparison to Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. Every fan of Robert E. Howard and aficionados of great adventure writing will want to own this collection of the best of Howard's desert tales.

    "Dumb Fun!"

    Leave your brain at the door and enjoy the ride as El Borak, otherwise know as Francis Xavier Gordon rips it up through Central and South Asia and the Middle East. Most of this collection of short adventure stories set in the late 19th or early 20th century follows Gordon as he outfights, out-toughs, outwits and generally rolls over anyone and anything that gets in his way. There are a few stories that do not star Gordon but they similar in style to the Gordon stories. Great dumb fun.

    "Not my cup of tea"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Book was slow. Did not get past the first chapter. Wish I had never spend my $$$$
