Conan of Venarium by Harry Turtledove: Book Review


Here's your quick review:

If you are a Conan "purist" of any kind, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.

If you want a good rousing tale of what it "may" have been like in Conan's youth and you can be cool with different authors' takes on the Conan mythos, then go pick it up and have a good read. Turtledove is more than a skilled storyteller, even if he doesn't always get the feel for Conan quite right.

There. Hope that helps!
