Bran Mak Morn: The Last King Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Robert E. Howard's fertile imagination sprang some of fiction's greatest heroes, including Conan the Cimmerian, King Kull, and Solomon Kane. But of all Howard's characters, noneembodied his creator's brooding temperament more than Bran Mak Morn, the last king of a doomed race.

In ages past, the Picts ruled all of Europe. But the descendants of those proud conquerorshave sunk into barbarism . . . all save one, Bran Mak Morn, whose bloodline remains unbroken. Threatened by the Celts and the Romans, the Pictish tribes rally under his banner to fight for their very survival, while Branfights to restore the glory of his race.

Lavishly illustrated by award-winning artist Gary Gianni, this collection gathers together all of Howard's published stories and poems featuring BranMak Morn-including the eerie masterpiece Worms of the Earth and Kings of the Night, in which sorcery summons Kull the conqueror from out of the depths of time to standwith Bran against the Roman invaders.

Also included are previously unpublished stories and fragments, reproductions of manuscripts bearing Howard's handwritten revisions, and much, much more.

Special Bonus: a newly discovered adventure by Howard, presented here for the very first time.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
