Queen of the Black Coast by Robert E. Howard is today’s Free eBook of the Day.
The short story is one of the first featuring the character Conan the Cimmerian. It was originally published in Weird Tales, a fantasy horror lit magazine that published from the 1920s to the 1950s. Here is an excerpt: “The shipmaster was a good judge of men. One glance at the dark scarred face of the swordsman, hardened with passion, and he shouted a quick order, thrusting strongly against the piles. The galley wallowed out into clear water, the oars began to clack rhythmically; then a puff of wind filled the shimmering sail, the light ship heeled to the gust, then took her course like a swan, gathering headway as she skimmed along.”
