The author's first book published in his own country—ten years after his death—this grand omnibus volume is one of Arkham House's finest books. SKULL-FACE contains H.P. Lovecraft's moving and laudatory— A MEMORIAM—"That such a genuine artist should perish while hundreds of insincere hacks continue to concoct spurious ghosts and vampires and space-ships and occult detectives is indeed a sorry piece of cosmic irony!" E. Hoffmann Price's— A MEMORY OF R.E. HOWARD—"During his thirty years of life I believe he lived in two worlds, and if, as they tell us, there is not only an afterlife... View more info

De Camp took four previously unpublished Robert E. Howard stories that weren't CONAN stories, and changed the locales to the HYBORIAN AGE, and "foto-shopped" the character CONAN into them.
