Bran Mak Morn: The Last King
Robert E. Howard
Del Rey, May 2005, $15.95, 384 pp.
ISBN: 0345461541

Though Bran Mak Morn is the prime player of this collection, as he stars in three of the short stories and is a feature star of the Miscellanea Part two section, this compilation is more accurately described as a deep look at the author’s “Lost Race”: the Picts. The compilation is fabulously enhanced by the illustrations of Gary Gianni that bring even more to life Howard’s blending of fantasy and history in this case, the ancient world of the Picts. Clearly the sword and sorcery crowd who like a more historical anchor will want to read this insightful look at Mr. Howard’s Pict world. Especially those who enjoy Conan will cherish BRAN MAK MORN: THE LAST KING that will remind fans of THE BLOODY CROWN OF CONAN in format and style; containing short stories enhanced by Mr. Gianni’s delightful illustrations and Miscellanea and Appendices segments that provide further insight into the author and his rendition of the Picts.
