I do like Howard's style, from what I've read. Back in the 70s, I had an aversion to the big Conan fad because it was so... barbaric.
But compared to what pop culture has become, it looks positively mellow now.
I thought the preview to The Ruins
looked great, so let me know what you think of the book.
Also, I should recommend this
to all Zombie Apocalypse fans; I may be biased, however.
