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.
