The 6 stories captured in Wolfshead are not about Conan, are longer than most of his Conan works, and held to be some of his finest writings. I have to agree that they are some of the finest Howard stories I have read (note that my list of Howard works is simply this book and Conan). In short, the writing was beautifully haunting and drew me in time and again; however, this wordy skill is off-balanced by the few racist references and sexist overtone. While I can stand in awe of Howards wordsmith, Im also adult enough to acknowledge the white male chauvinism embedded in the works without dismissing them as due to the times and location (Howard wrote in 1920s Texas).
