Elak of Atlantis -The Complete Saga by Henry Kuttner

After the suicide of Robert E. Howard in 1936, readers were left wanting more stories of swords and sorcery similar to the Conan stories. Henry Kuttner (1915-1958) responded with the Elak of Atlantis stories. Vikings, Druids, goddesses, dark magic and sword fights aplenty fill the adventures of the Atlantean prince that walked away from his throne.

Beyond the Phoenix

“1. A King Dies

And the torchlight touched the pale hair
Where silver clouded gold,
And the frame of his face was made of cords,
And a young lord turned among the lords
And said: “The King is old.”
—G. K. Chesterton.

“I  WON’T kill you quickly,” said Lycon, a fierce grin of satisfaction on his round face. “No. I’ve suffered your insults too long. I must bring an offering each day to the altar of your stinking god, eh? An ear for that!”

He brought down his sword in a vicious sweep.

“Good! Now your nose, Xandar— you’ve sniffed out too many victims with it already. Thus—” Again steel flashed.

“And an eye, Xandar—see? I remove it with the point. Very carefully. For a copper coin I’d make you eat it.”
