Story: Spear and Fang
First Publication: Weird Tales, July 1925
Robert E. Howard was only eighteen years old in 1924 when he sold his first short story to Weird Tales magazine. Of this story, Mark Finn wrote in his Howard biography: "'Spear and Fang' wasn't literature, nor high art, but it stood out in one important aspect; the story was practically all action, galloping along at breakneck pace (Blood and Thunder, page 88)."
You can currently find this story in Shadow Kingdoms-- The Weird Works of Robert E. Howard, Volume 1. It's a quicky, and next month's story, In the Forest of Villefore, is even shorter (and will be posted in this forum nest month as well).
WARNING: THIS THREAD WILL CONTAIN DISCUSSION OF THE STORIES CONTENT, AKA "SPOILERS."
