Western and Boxing stories by REH


Banded Mongoose
Bison books offers - besides others - three REH compilations, two with Western stories and one with Boxing stories.

Can someone tell me, if these stories contain something supernatural or are they just mundane?

A few of them have expressly supernatural elements: "The Man on the Ground", "The Dead Remember" and "The Spirit of Tom Molyneaux", certainly.
By the way, Girasol Collectibles has another compilation, Blood of the Gods and other stories by Robert E. Howard, edited by Paul Herman. It contains the following:
"The Country of the Knife"
"Hawk of the Hills"
"The Daughter of Erlik Khan"
"Blood of the Gods"
"Swords of Shahrazar"

These stories all take place in the desert or the Himalayas one review site says. I got this one a couple weeks ago, and it's pretty nice. Just thought I'd pass this along.
The Black Stranger is available from Amazon for $10 and includes the title Conan story and some other "American" tales by REH.
For Robert E. Howard hard-boiled detective fiction try "Graveyard Rats and Others' from Wildside Press. Available from Amazon. Just received mine today! 8)
