Tales of Racism and Misogyny

Robert E Howard was recommended to me as a writer in the style of Lovecraft. Sure, Lovecraft is racist, but these stories are an order of magnitude of racism above Lovecraft. They are terrifying: the views he holds are truly horrific, the stories themselves pretty lame. I tried to get through the first one, but couldn't stand it.

Fantastic narration of some tremendous stories

As always, HorrorBabble delivers. The titular tale especially is very gripping and intense. Classical horror made to be modern.

Great narration of some of RE Howard's writings

Many focus on Conan the Barbarian and rightly so. His legacy is sure as The Riddle of Steel. But I was very pleasantly surprised by these offerings. This Kathulos of Egypt reminds me in some ways of Scorpion from Mortal Kombat at least by description. REHs vampire tales play like a full length feature in the mind while Ian Gordon is reading.

Well done!
