Robert Jordan's Conan is quite good: the guy is an excellent writer and uses "low" magic: no flashy spell or fantastic events, but some court intrigues, battles between armies and rare monsters (or demons). His plots are very good.ReptileJK said:This reminds me: what do you all think of Robert Jordan's Conan stories?
Like I said previously, I read Conan the Magnificent (I even still have the book), but I read it so long ago and when I was pretty young. I don't remember a thing about it. How does he measure up as far as pastiches go?
From all pastiches he is (IMO) one of the best writer to approach Howard (I highly recommand Conan the Triumphant) and his only downside is that he develops more relationship between the main characters than Howard did.
