Volume 3: Skull-Face and Other Weird Tales
Presenting the third volume in the Robert E. Howard Library collection series collecting the spectacular work of the bard of Peaster and master of dark fantasy, strange tales, and weird fiction, this series puts together the early tales and novelettes written by the creator of Conan of Cimmeria, Kull of Atlantis, Bran Mak Morn and Solomon Kane originally published by Weird Tales in 1929 and 1930.
Skull-Face resembles Sax Rohmer's Fu Manchu stories but Howard takes the plot to another level. The Skull-Face aka Scorpion or Kathulos of Egypt isn’t just some oriental evil running a random hashish house and murdering people in preparation for his evil plan to conquer the world. He is a much darker and mysterious being, he is an undead sorcerer originating from the submerged Atlantis, the mythological lost continent, the Atlantis of King Kull, and his purpose is to unite all non-white peoples of the world to destroy the European and American empire.
