The major work in Volume Three will be Howard's third largest work, his 96-page novella Three-Bladed Doom, featuring El Borak.

Thank you for sharing my interest in Robert E. Howard.

This is my favorite El Borak yarn.

Make sure to also read the short version. REH wrote it second/last, cutting out a lot. However, he did _add_ a very interesting bit of data toward the end concerning the roots of the Assassin/Hidden Ones cult, pulling the tale in a bit of a fantasy direction. I liked it, myself. It tends to square with some of the Andrew Collins stuff in FROM THE ASHES OF ANGELS.

Of course, we have the deja vu/reincarnation moment in the first version.
