    come join Conan the Cimmerian as he romps about in two bold and bloody adventures well, one sorta kinda adventure and the other a short mystery although really not much of a mystery in the first, young Conan encounters unpleasant natural supernatural threats while attempting to steal a precious jewel in the second, young Conan encounters unpleasant guardsmen a rather obvious secret monster while attempting to

    I ve read 4 Conan short stories now, and while I m beginning to recognize that there s a definite formula to Howard s writing, this story was thus far unmatched in terms of sheer entertainment value and the lore it added to the world If I had known years ago that Howard s Conan works were so steeped in lore and grand world building, I probably would have started reading these stories long ago Set in the early days of Co

    Buddy Read with a fabulous bunch of people

    I really, really loved this one The way the words flowed and the dialogue felt poetic I recognized several scenes that the movie Conan The Barbarian took from this story

    Howard at his best The Tower of the Elephant is one of the best of Robert E Howard s tales of Conan the barbarian, and one of his best stories period Conan s encounter with the being in the tower is most unusual to say the least Conan s capacity to feel empathy for this creature reveals a complexity and sensitivity to his character that is seldom seen elsewhere in the Conan saga Highly recommended.

    Tower is not the first but it is one of best stories that Howard wrote.Arnie S was ghastly as Conan he was far too big.In the 1970s there was movie called Street Fighter starring Charles Bronson he then would been brilliant as Conan.This dark Ghotic story about theft an elephant God a dark wizard it s classic

    I ve read this Conan tale probably ten times now and I still find it fascinating Truly the father of Sword and Sorcery, Robert E Howard was influenced by so much in his relatively short life He writes here about the bases evil and greed of man, the necessity of bonds with others towards common purpose, and the inherent evils of sorcery The elephant creature he finds in the tower was once a powerful and beautiful equivalent to a cosmic diety A base and greedy man wanted it s secrets, and g
