In part three of our Conan BookCast series, we discuss the stories “Queen of the Black Coast,” “Black Colossus,” and “Iron Shadows in the Moon.” We also go over the tired helpless damsel in distress trope that's so prevalent in some of these stories. We also break down some of the things we dislike about Robert E. Howard's writing style and overuse of specific descriptions.
If you want to read along with us, go to www.drunkenpenwriting.com and check out our BookCast book guides posted every Monday. We have links to where you can read the stories for free, as well as YouTube audio versions you can listen to.
