I just wanted to thank you for helping turn me on to Harold Lamb. Ive read some of his Khilit stories and am starting his crusaders tales in the collection "swords of the west". exactly what i was looking for. historical tales, well researched, full of action and no magic in sight. perfect. why Harold Lamb isnt more well known I cant understand.

Hey Keny! Welcome back again. Glad I could be of help. Mr. Lamb was unjustly forgotten, but I feel that his star is once again on the rise, which is exactly as REH would've wanted it. I wrote a review of Swords From the West on the TC blog here:
TC has an entire category devoted to Lamb. There's also a great thread devoted to Lamb on this forum.
thanks again, deuce. i skimmed your review but was afraid of spoilers so ill read it after i finish the book. im taking it slow to savor it. this is the closest thing to reading lord of samarkand (the collection) again for me.
