I heard that this was the story that was the influence for Marvel's Red Sonja. Does anyone know where I can find this at? :)

The story is titled "Shadow of the Vulture"

If you can find it used, it is also in Echoes of Valor III, TOR books, edited by Karl Edward Wagner.

The cheapest by far to buy "Sowers of the Thunder" is in the Zebra paperback Sowers of the Thunder
This is my favorite REH non-Conan story, by the way. I broke down and bought the Donald Grant edition. The REAL Ren Sonya rocks.

And speaking of "Rocks", after you read it, let me know what you think of Sonya's sister, Roxellana!

Lord of Samarcand is more expensive than a used copy of The Sowers of Thunder, but it does have the same stories and many more, which makes it worthwhile. My opinion is subject to change, but at the moment it is my single favorite REH book, and I hope more people will read and enjoy those stories!

Hello:
Does anyone know how many Red Sonya stories were written by REH? And I mean Red Sonya of Rogatino who appeared in The Shadow of the Vulture, not the Red Sonja created by Roy Thomas. Also, in what anthologies or collected works can she be found?

Thanks to the Experts for the help

As far as I know she only appeared in that one story and it can be found in The Lord Of Samarcand and other Tales of the Old Orient.

"Samarcand" contains some of REH's very best blood-soaked adventure yarns. There ain't a bad one in the bunch. Plus, we have Rusty Burke's excellent editing, making the text of each yarn the most authoritative out there.

Very true. The Grant edition of Road of Azrael had some great Krenkel work in it, too. Roy also did a fine foreword to "Sowers". I miss that dude. :(

When you say crusader, do you mean like the Crusades? And what time period is it set in?

What else, in Crom's name, would I mean by "Crusader" (capitalized)? You asked about "Vulture" two years ago, and you still don't know that REH wrote tales set during the Crusades? I repeat: buy Lord of Samarcand. :)
