Bestiary Of The Hyborian Age from the Author: Bryan Steele. Tales of dripping fangs and ripping claws echo out from around flickering campfires, drawing travellers close together to avoid the beasts that wait just beyond the dim light. Alleyways hide assassins that want more than coin from their victims, and sometimes the movement in the shadows are the shadows themselves. Hyboria is a dangerous place filled with deadly beasts and hungering predators - any of which could spell the epilogue in an adventurer's epic tale at any time. For the first time in the history of the Conan Roleplaying Game all of the creatures, animals, demons and beasts of Hyboria are gathered between two covers. Some will look very familiar, like the Ape Men or the Zombie, but new creatures like the Dark Spawn and the Pictish Hound will give Games Masters a whole new arsenal as well. Compiled together for Games Masters everywhere to unleash upon their players, the Hyborian Bestiary gives over a hundred statistic profiles and plot hooks for the denizens of Conan's world.

Robert E Howard from the Author: Leon Nielsen. Robert E. Howard published primarily in pulp magazines, creating memorable characters like Conan of Cimmeria. After his suicide at the age of 30, pulps continued publishing Howard material posthumously. His first hardcover book appeared in 1937, a year after his death. That book, A Gent from Bear Creek, is the holy grail for Howard collectors--only 12 original copies are known to exist. This invaluable resource for Howard collectors has information for every known published work. Initial chapters provide a biography, discuss Howard's literary legacy, and give basic tips about book collecting and selling. The main body of the work is a bibliography of Howard's published works from 1925 through 2005. A thorough index locates the publication of every Howard story or poem.
