Do not read this book looking for a fine pastiche of Conan Do not read this book hoping for a fine pastiche of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Mars novels But if you love Conan and ERB this is Conan as ERB would have written him Highly recommended In my opinion while Carter deserves some of the criticism against him he was definitely derivative is that truly a bad thing he has been unfairly maligned as an author He is really uite good when in ERB or Clark Ashton Smith mode
