Echoes of Valor II book. A very nice collection of heroic fantasy featuring Robert E. Howard, Manly Wade Wellman, . Moore, and a collaboration between Leigh Brackett and Ray Bradbury. How could you go wrong with a line-up like that? The introductions and notes are also interesting and informative. It is notable for issuing the two original versions of Howard's Conan story "The Frost-Giant's Daughter," one for the first time since its original publication, and the other for the first time in print

Άνουβις
I'd actually read all of the stories in this collection before I bought this, so why buy them all again. Well, two reasons. Firstly, there were some good introductions and explanations by Wagner, Moskowitz and Ackerman I had not read, and also - how could I have Volumes 1 and 3 on my shelf with nothing in between? What sort of self-respecting booklover would I be if I let an injustice like that occur? Well, for what its worth, here are the contents:

"Introduction: Robert E. Howard" (Karl Edward Wagner)
"The Frost King's Daughter" (AKA "Gods of the North") (Robert E. Howard)
"The Frost-Giant's Daughter" (Robert E. Howard)
"Introduction: C. L. Moore" (Karl Edward Wagner)
"An Autobiographical Sketch of C. L. Moore" (C. L. Moore)
"Quest of the Starstone" (C. L. Moore and Henry Kuttner)
"Nymph of Darkness" (C. L. Moore and Forrest J. Ackerman)
"The Genesis of an Invisible Venusienne" (Forrest J. Ackerman)
"The 'NYMPH' o' ManiAck" (Forrest J. Ackerman)
"Werewoman" (C. L. Moore)
"Foreword to 'Song in a Minor Key'" (Sam Moskowitz)
"Song in a Minor Key" (C. L. Moore)
"Introduction: Leigh Brackett and Ray Bradbury" (Karl Edward Wagner)
"Lorelei of the Red Mist" (Leigh Brackett and Ray Bradbury)
"Introduction: Manly Wade Wellman" (Karl Edward Wagner)
"Hok Visits the Land of Legends" (Manly Wade Wellman)
"Untitled Hok Fragment" (Manly Wade Wellman)

All of those stories are good, and "Lorelei" is arguably great. The only problem with it for modern readers is that the protagonist's name is "Conan": written in the mid-40's with Howard's hulking barbarian last seen in print 10 years ago in Weird Tales, this was in-joke Brackett could get away with at the time, but not today: it yanks the reader out of the story. If I was reprinting the story today, I'd change that name to something less encumbered, and note that in a foreword or afterword. But I'm not, so I suppose that entire little digression was pointless.

I wish I had read - and bought - this back in 1989 when it was published: the journey into old pulp fiction that I only truly began 4 or 5 years ago might have started much earlier, and perhaps my bookshelf would look somewhat different today.
