‘Conan, the hero of all Howard’s heroes, is the armoured swashbuckler, indestructible and irresistible, that we’ve all wanted to be at one time or another; the women, in appearance, manner, and costume (or lack of it), are the inmates of the sort of harem that harems ought to be but aren’t; the villains are villainous as only perfect villains can be; the sorcerers are sorcerers in spades; and the apparitions they conjure up, or who appear under their own power, are (thank God!) out of this world’
Dr. John D. Clark
