    1. REH is best known for his character Conan, but he wrote some kick-ass westerns, too. This is a collection of several great short stories in that genre.


    2. This particular paperback edition would have you believe you are buying a book of Robert E. Howard's fantasy, from the wonderful Jeff Jones cover painting of a skeletal horseman plagued by vultures to the bold-faced lies that declare "The Vultures of Whapeton" to be "fantasy/adventure" in the "fantasy world of Robert E. Howard" abounding with the "horrifying secret of this magical power" that "turns men into jackals, wolves and vultures." All of that is a big fat lie from the people at Zebra Boo [...]


    3. Robert E. Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited. This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E. Howard's stories. I am a purist when it comes to a writers works. I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period. Don't read this book unless you just can't find any others of Howard's unedited books to read. Message me if you need a li [...]


    4. Really enjoyed the title novella and the shorter stories less so. I found the female characters, very much the pure of heart stereotype, less interesting than if Howard had gone the other way with femme fatales (the only other option open to the pulp writer crowd). In addition one of the stories had a non-twist with a infamous gunfighter who had disappeared and only one character with a mysterious past - I think the revelation was intended to be surprising, but it was obvious and pretty sappy, e [...]


    5. A collection of some of Howard's Western stories, and it is a mixed bag. The title story and first of the volume is a western set in a mining camp that has been taken over by a gang, the titular Vultures. Reminded me somewhat of the Max Brand I read a few months ago, The Guns of Dorking Hollow, and the story had some of the same missteps. At times the story is awkward, I don't think this is Howard's wheelhouse, I had heard excellent things about some of Howard's western stories, but in this one [...]


    6. I actually just finished a different version with 2 new stories in it. I rad the version listed several times but found a copy with a different cover and new stories and had to read the whole thing. Howard was an amazing story teller. The title story 'Vultures of Whapeton' is a classic though most western aficionados have never read it. Ahead of it's time with a none-typical ending. The last story (a new one for me) "Wild Water' is in the same vain. Glad I spent the money on it.


    7. Contains some of Robert E. Howard's Serious, as in non-humorous westerns. I actually prefer these myself, and The Vultures of Whapeton is a truly fine western tale.There is a Zebra version and a Berkley version of this. The Berkley is more readable. It actually has title pages for the stories.




    8. Fast moving Western with a stoic and morally ambiguous hero, sort of like Conan the Barbarian in the Wild West. Loved it.
