The latest in the REH Collection: 'Oriental Stories, Vol. 2'

Now available at DriveThruFiction.com and DriveThruRPG.com is Oriental Stories Vol. 2: Four Pulp Fiction Tales by Robert E. Howard, the latest entry in NUELOW Games' series The Robert E. Howard Collection.

It some ways, this book is a one-stop example of why I put this series together: While all the stories featured are action-oriented tales set in the Middle East and Near East, they each are each examples of the range of material that Howard wrote--one is historical fiction with a comedic bent, one is pregnant with supernatural menace, one is a horror-tinged action story, and one is straight-up adventure fiction. The only thing we don't get here is the conversational, tall-tale telling style he used when writing the Steve Costigan and Breckenridge Elkins stories.

I hope you'll consider checking out the collection, as the purpose for the series is to show that Howard was more than just the creator of Conan the Barbarian.

As a thank-you for your support and for visiting the NUELOW Games blog, you can purchase the Oriental Stories Vol. 2 for just $1 through this special link. (That's almost half off the regular price.)

If you have only read Howard's fantasy tales--such as Conan or King Kull--I encourage you to check out his other work, because he was capable of much more.
