Robert E. Howard's Conan the Cimmerian Barbarian: The Complete Weird Tales Omnibus

Excerpt from the introduction:

"When the first Conan of Cimmeria story appeared in the pages of Weird Tales magazine in December 1932, nothing quite like it had ever before appeared in print. Author Robert E. Howard had been writing stories broadly similar to it for half a decade; but it was with Conan, and the Hyborian Age storyworld in which he was placed, that Howard finally fully doped out the sub-genre that would become known as "sword and sorcery", of which Howard is today considered the founding father.

"Conan's origins date back to an experiment in 1926 titled "The Shadow Kingdom", featuring the character Kull, exile of Atlantis. The idea - Howard's great innovation - was, at its core, historical fiction set in a pre-historical period. That pre-historical period - being, of course, lost in the mists of time - could contain anything Howard might like to include: evil races of sentient snake-things, sorcerers, undead creatures, demons walking upon the earth, anything.

"In other words, Howard was creating a secular mythology."

Game of Risk: Risqué, Book 3

Going about her uneventful life, the last thing commitment-phobe Layla Jansen expects is to be abducted from a business meeting by one of her brother's crazy friends. But her brother, Drew, does know how to get himself into trouble and this time he's investigating a case of corruption that goes all the way to the top.

Ruger Warner has a debt to settle and protecting the pretty behind of his old ally is an easy way to put the past to rest. But the sassy vixen has legs which go all the way to heaven and a mouth that can match his wit.

Layla promises her brother she'll do as she's told and let Ruger keep her alive. But that doesn't mean she plans to make it easy for the hulk of a man who thinks he can charm his way into every woman's good graces.

Layla had been accused of many things in her time, being easy wasn't one of them, and Ruger is about to learn that the hard way.

Tom Playfair or Making a Start
Tom Playfair is the first book of "Fr. Finn's Famous Three". Along with sequels Percy Wynn and Harry Dee, Tom Playfair was the most popular of Fr. Francis J. Finn's twenty-seven Catholic novels for young people. Resembling a Catholic version of Charles Dickens' stories, or even the Hardy Boys, the various adventures of Tom Playfair were read by hundreds of thousands of young people in the late 19th and 20th centuries. But young Catholics today love Tom Playfair too! Their quaint turn-of-the-century language is part of the charm of the stories as is Fr. Finn's own brand of humor. When the kids "get into" his style they find it hilarious!
