Steady, Your Majesty. Steady.

Jump off. Jump.

What about me?

Get back here and stop playing the fool.

I hear and obey, master of the world.

I'm coming.

Lucky for you that this person came along.

Reward her, and tell her who I am.

His Royal Highness, the Prince Tarn,

Great lord of Hablok...

keeper of the spotless throne...

great elephant who fertilizes the world

with his...

I've told you not to say that.

Do it again, and I'll have you impaled.

Well, reward her, fool.

From the look of your kingdom, Prince,

you need this more than I do.

Did she address me?

What happened?

Queen Gedren attacked us

is what happened.

Gedren? Queen Gedren?

That's right.

She knocked down half the city with her

new weapon and demanded our surrender.

My army ran away.

Do they want to live forever?

I refused to surrender.

So she knocked down the other half.

Falkon, since everyone is dead

or run away...

you shall escort me

to the mountains tomorrow.

I shall raise a new army...

and crush this upstart Gedren underfoot.

Where can I find her, this Queen Gedren?

In Burkubane, the land of eternal night.

How do I get there?

There's a long scenic way, and there's

the short way through Brytag's toll road.

I'll take Brytag's toll road.

Which way is that?

Straight north from here.

You can't miss it.

But it's worth a try.

Ask the woman

if she wishes to join my army.

We'll probably need a cook.

Your Highness is too kind,

but I travel alone.

Dismiss the woman, Falkon.

I shall dine in an hour.

May I give you a word of advice?

Put him over your knee

and beat some manners into him.

You wouldn't happen to have a tablecloth,

would you?

Brytag, come down and open the gate.

Not so fast, redhead.

I'm up here

where I can get a better look at you.

I have no time to waste, Brytag.

Robert E. Howard

Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre. Howard was born and raised in Texas. He spent most of his life in the town of Cross Plains, with some time spent in nearby Brownwood. A bookish and intellectual child, he was also a fan of boxing and spent some time in his late teens bodybuilding, eventually taking up amateur boxing. From the age of nine he dreamed of becoming a writer of adventure fiction but did not have real success until he was 23. Thereafter, until his death by suicide at age 30, Howard's writings were published in a wide selection of magazines, journals, and newspapers, and he became proficient in several subgenres. His greatest success occurred after his death. Although a Conan novel was nearly published in 1934, Howard's stories were never collected during his lifetime. The main outlet for his stories was Weird Tales, where Howard created Conan the Barbarian. With Conan and his other heroes, Howard helped fashion the genre now known as sword and sorcery, spawning many imitators and giving him a large influence in the fantasy field. Howard remains a highly read author, with his best works still reprinted. Howard’s suicide and the circumstances surrounding it have led to speculation about his mental health. His mother had been ill with tuberculosis his entire life, and upon learning she had entered a coma from which she was not expected to wake, he walked out to his car and shot himself in the head. more…
