A grand adventure of the mighty thewed barbarian, from one of fantasy’s biggest names.
Conan... The name has inspired generations, one that resounds through time immemorial. Yet it all began with a handful of stories from Robert E. Howard. In the decades since, there have been feature films, television and comic book series, and numerous spin-off novels. In 1979, Poul Anderson – winner of a staggering eight Hugo and three Nebula Awards – wrote what is regarded as one of the finest adventures in the canon of Conan: Conan the Rebel.
Conan the barbarian and Bêlit, his raven-haired beauty, lead a band of savage pirates striving to free Bêlit's people from the iron grip of an evil reptile god and its cruel minions. Striking at the heart of tyranny, Conan must break the chains of oppression before eternal darkness claims them all.
Poul Anderson (1926–2001) was born in Pennsylvania of Scandinavian stock. He started publishing science fiction in 1947 and became one the great figures in the genre, serving as President of the Science Fiction Writers of America, winning many Hugo and Nebula awards, and also winning the Gandalf (Grand Master) Award.
