"Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet."

Son of Crom
Today is the birthday of Robert Ervin Howard (1906), creator of Conan, Kull, Bran Mak Morn, and Solomon Kane.
(From The Phoenix on the Sword.)
A pity that the upcoming Conan film will not be based on any of Howard's original tales. But at least we now have the original stories in print, thanks to Wandering Star and Ballantine Books. (See: The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian, The Bloody Crown of Conan, and The Conquering Sword of Conan.)
