I have been adding many new books to my collection recently. My interest in reading has shifted to older books and authors. So I thought instead of just a simple book haul post I would do more of a spotlight/introduction post as well. So in the post below you will not only find the usual book haul photo’s, but book and author info as well. I hope you will take the time to look it over and maybe take a chance at checking out books and authors that you may have forgot about or discover in these post!
I found this book at my favorite local used book store. Looks like a great anthology with some fantastic authors.
Today we have:
Echoes of Valor
Edited by Karl Edward Wagner
Tor PB (1987)
My updated Robert E. Howard and Conan collection.
Info from Howard Works.
A great resource!
Echoes of Valor is an anthology of fantasy stories, edited by Karl Edward Wagner. It was first published in paperback by Tor Books in February 1987.
The book collects three classic fantasy novellas by Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, and Henry Kuttner. It is notable for issuing the original version of Howard’s Conan story “The Black Stranger” for the first time in print (the story had previously appeared in various versions revised by L. Sprague de Camp).
All three volumes of the Echoes of Valor series were outstanding. I only wish there were more.
