These original volumes and I chuckle as I use that term because there is little original about them, other than they were the first Conan books I saw took the old Gnome collections and added new pastiches written by L. The twelfth volume in this series, Conan of Aquilonia is placed at Number 11 chronologically. Conan of Aquilonia has a twisted history of its own. This might sound like a good place for these stories but in fact it was virtually the only place. Fantastic was a low-paying market with a small audience.

Oct 26, David rated it liked it. Conan of Aquilonia is a collection of short-stories sequentially building up to King Conan's final and decisive showdown with his arch-enemy Thoth-Amon.
The stories are not as good as the original Howard Conan tales. But then I never expected them to be. Howards writing was uniquely endowed by his storytelling genius and gift for evoking moods and atmosphere.
His style can be imitated up to a point but never surpassed at least not up to now. So, with my expectations adjusted accordingly I rea Conan of Aquilonia is a collection of short-stories sequentially building up to King Conan's final and decisive showdown with his arch-enemy Thoth-Amon.
So, with my expectations adjusted accordingly I read this book and enjoyed it for what it was; fast food Conan rather than a gastronomic feast.
Apparently, L. Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter did not approve of Frazetta's covers. They constantly nit-picked and criticized his work. This disgruntlement probably stemmed from the lavish praise the covers got which often overshadowed their writing.
Its a shame the writers couldn't rise above their insecurities to acknowledge the debt they owed Frazetta. For there is no doubt that the seventies paperbacks would not have been as popular as they were without those stunning covers. Frazetta's artwork complimented Howards writing as no other artists work ever has and when those two geniuses came together in one package well! The combination remains unsurpassed to this day.

Okay, this is not great literature But still, I for one will occasionally read about Conan's philosophy of not worrying about things you can't change, and thrusting swords through the ones you can. Fun read, though the inclusion of "baby Conan," his son Conn, made this one a little more hokey than most of the books. Sep 27, Mike the Paladin rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy.
This is one of the Lancer Conans. Some of you will hate them because they are not only NOT the pure Howard stories, but they also include stories made from notes and pastiches by other authors. I enjoyed them, maybe not so much as the pure Howard stories, but they are good.
I don't have all of them anymore and they are hard to find Wish someone would reissue them. Jan 03, Rick rated it it was ok Shelves: hyborian-age , sword-and-sorcery. This was all rather typical. Nothing really stuck out and I was hoping, as Conan's son Conn, was joining him on this set of four connected adventures that there might be some interesting twists. Sadly that was not the case. Nothing really wrong with anything, just nothing really outstanding either.
Howard — had no input whatsoever. These gap-filler books are welcome enough in general, but this one seemed lacking in various respects. This sort of thing should be presented in the narration.
Feb 07, Aaron White rated it really liked it. Writing is not as good as Howards, while telling one extended story it is laid out as 4 shorter stories. These were reasons to not like it as much, but in the end I had to give it 4, instead of 3 stars. The action and adventure were great fun, unbelievable, yes, but great fun.
I loved that the author's brought in Conan's son, it was a great chance to see another side of him. And, of course, the old, constant enemy. Conan is a little older and his son is about twelve years old. This book is basically one story, but contains four short stories Conan finds himself battling men and monster In Conan of Aquilonia book 11 , Conan takes on Thoth-Amon and the evil wizards of the Black Ring to win back his kidnapped son Conn.
Conan finds himself battling men and monsters and travels all over the known and unknown world. May 16, Ceegee rated it really liked it.
Another Conan Pastiche by Messrs. De Camp and Carter, enjoyable as ever, though some will regard that as near-blasphemy. Conan's son Conn is a bit of a 'Scrappy-Doo' add on in this book, but I still enjoyed it. The book is essentially a novel, split into four consecutive stories. If you like De Camp and Carter's pastiche work, this book is probably one you'll enjoy, if you are of the 'Howard, Howard and only Howard' mindset, then steer well clear!
Sep 23, Gonzalo Oyanedel rated it liked it. Aug 09, Pierre Armel rated it liked it. Good pop-corn literature. Does not even come close to Howard's works but makes for a fun read if you are a a fan of the Cimmerian. To be taken as published fan fiction since it derogates to many principles of the Howard's stories. Oct 20, Ron rated it it was amazing. Hard to beat the original Conan. The character never dies Conan is forever. Sep 25, Fred rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy.
For it's time this book is pretty awesome fantasy.
