The Iron Man - ebook/epub
Robert E. Howard
KtoCzyta.pl
The Iron Man has fought since time immemorial -- with but one thought in mind -- to get to his foe and crush him. The centuries, the costumes, the weapons are different. The object is the same. The gore and savagery of Howard’s tales of the ring is little removed from those exploits of Conan and Kull and Bran Mak Morn.It is common knowledge that Robert E. Howard was a boxing enthusiast, and his fellow author H. P. Lovecraft tied Howard’s interest in sports directly to his „love of primitive conflict and strength..'In The Iron Man are three of Howard’s best tales of the ring -- certainly tales of primitive conflict and strength which are collected in book form for the first time.
