Skull-Face: A Novelette of Dark IntrigueWhile trying to silence the demons he carried with him from the battlefields of World War One, Stephen Costigan becomes hopelessly addicted to hashish. As he wastes away in a Limehouse drug den, a beautiful woman of mystery draws him into the schemes of a being who may be older than history itself.
But Stephen Costigan is no one's pawn, and he soon allies himself with the British Intelligence Service to defeat the menace that is Skull-Face and regain his independence... or die trying.
Skull-Face is a classic adventure tale from Robert E. Howard, the creator of such legendary pulp fiction heroes as Conan, Solomon Kane, and King Kull. Originally serialized in 1929 in the pages of Weird Tales magazine, it's Howard's take on the "Yellow Peril" genre--an adventure fiction subgenre that gave rise to Sax Rhomer's immortal Fu Manchu--as well as his spin on the "truth' behind H.P. Lovecraft's legendary Elder Gods. It's a tale worth reading for lovers of adventure yarns, classic pulp fiction, and the development of the greater body of literature that evolved from H.P. Lovecraft's horror stories.
Skull-Face is available now at DriveThruFiction.com.
