Appendix Z - Harold Lamb

Appendix Z - Harold Lamb

His histories and biographies are some of the most enjoyable I've ever read, but Lamb was also a writer of adventure fiction. His Cossack and Viking stories put him in the realm of Howard, or more correctly, Howard took the realm of Lamb's work and used it to help build a world of his own. Though Lamb's tales were not sword and sorcery, he proved that the sword could be more than enough to enthrall a reader and show what an exciting and adventurous world this could be.

  1. Wonderful material, mine was all lost in last years fire. The Cossack stories are alive, just like Conan. The histories you rout for Hannibal or whichever person he is re-creating.

  2. I know what you mean. After reading his Ghenghis Khan he became my favorite historical character. I'm just thankful for the eBook versions anymore.
