Summary

Classic Lovecraftian horror from one of the masters of the form, British Fantasy Award-winner Brian Lumley.

Tarra Khash is a Hrossak, a barbarian from the steppes beyond the River Luhr. A fearless adventurer, Tarra roves Theem-hdra in search of his next fortune, his next drink, and warm, willing females to share his bed. The Hrossak is a most fortunate man, for he has faced more than one god during his travels, and so far escaped unscathed....

Seeking to avenge the murder of a beautiful young woman of the half-mystical Suhm-yi, Tarra joins forces with her husband, now the last of his kind. Each worships a moon-god, and together, their faith and Tarra's weapons wreak a terrible vengeance on those who stole the treasure of the Suhm-yi and destroyed that noble race.

Eager for wealth, Tarra is trapped by a wily old man who has lured him into plumbing the depths of a treasure-filled cavern guarded by golden statues of the Great God Cthulhu. Cthulhu's treasure is not easily plundered, and Tarra nearly loses his life to the monstrous forces of the Elder God.

Many men have met the lamia Orbiquita, but none have lived to tell of her extraordinary powers of love-making—until Tarra Khash, who treats her as a woman wants to be treated and so earns her forgiveness and his life. Alas, others who assume her to be weakened by love for Tarra Khash are not so lucky! 

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Great Collection of Lovecraftian Sword & Sorcery

A brilliant collection featuring the tales of Brian Lumley's brutal barbarian character Tarra Khash. Very similar in tone to the Howard's Conan stories but with Lumley's typical dark horror edge.
Joshua Saxon is once again completely perfect for these stories. It was a pleasure to listen to.
Another winner from Crossroad Press.

The Master of the Genre

Master Lumley once again dives into the mythos of Love craft and does so with Joshua Season's voice as our guide into the worlds of the Primal Lands.

For me, there is no better pairing than Master Lumley and Mister Saxon, the vocalizations used by Joshua give life and death to the characters, places, and goings on that encompass the world of The Primal Lands.

With the greatest of ease, Joshua flows through the litany of words that describe to the listeners a vivid portrayal of all the strange and unusual events herein.

This collection is but the beginning, and after 7 hours, you immediately want more! AND MORE IS ON THE WAY, enjoy this volume until the final edits are done on Volume 2!
