I’m back after a forced hiatus, and to be completely honest, I haven’t read all these days, but hopefully I’ll pick right up where I left off.
For today short story I come back to the adventures of The Cimmerian, today’s tale is Iron Shadows in the Moon, originally published in Weird Tales of April 1934, where Conan faces the deathly Red Brotherhood.
I have been crazy busy, but no so much that I couldn’t read for a little bit.
The last two days I completed my task of reading a couple of short stories, still working on Wizards and The Coming of Conan The Cimmerian anthologies, on thursday was the turn of Conan, with the story of The Scarlet Citadel, in which our friend The Cimmerian is already king.
Yesterday’s story was from Wizards, The Ruby Incomparable, written by Kage Baker, in which two unlikely forces come together and create a world changing creature, I loved how the story develops so beautifully in such short number of pages.
For today I’ll go back to our friend the Barbarian, and one of his most iconic adventures, Queen of the Black Coast, with the mystifying Pirate Queen Bêlit.
I am more than thrilled of how this little project is going, I have only missed one day, and to find, hidden away in my bookshelves, more short story collections, gives me great hope of finishing successfully.
After I few hiccups, and one missed day, I am back on track with my mini project, the last story I read, Holly and Iron, from the anthology Wizards, written by Garth Nix, made me want to get into his alternative reality of the magical Ingland, and it’s already on my never ending wish list.
Today I will be going back to the adventures of The infamous Cimmerian Conan, this time is Tower of the Elephant, first published in Weird Tales of March 1933.
Continuing with this mini project that I am enjoying quite a lot, the next story is by famous author Garth Nix, Holly and Iron, from the anthology Wizards, same as the last mesmerizing tale by Neil Gaiman.
Described as a spooky and suspenseful adventure of two very different magical beliefs collide.
Sounds really exciting, for now, I am off to read.
