Conan the Usurper

Conan: Conan the Usurper (Book 8)Conan: Conan the Usurper by Robert E. Howard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Robert E. Howard watered down with too many unnecessary adjectives and overtly archaic constructions. Not the best of the old Conan paperbacks, though it's adequate for a needed sword and sorcery fix. I like L. Sprague de Camp's work when it doesn't involve reinterpreting and editing Howard. Conan isn't such a primitive inexorable force when you continually point out that he's a primitive inexorable force.
