Oriental Stories, Vol. 2: Four Classic Pulp Fiction Tales

Watermarked PDF


The latest entry in NUELOW Games' Robert E. Howard Collection series is something of a sampler. While the four classic pulp fiction tales featured in the book all take place in the Middle East or Asia, they show the variety in the types of stories that Howard wrote. While he could always be relied on for thunderous action, Howard wrote everything from fantasy, to historical fiction, to dark horror, and to outrageous comedy. In this book, you’ll get a taste of it all, against the dusty and exotic locales of the Middle East and Afghanistan, while moving through the ages from ancient times to the early 20th Century.

Included are the following short stories:

"The House of Arabu": A Greek mercenary in the service of a Sumerian king is targeted for death by the demoness Lilitu.

"Gates of Empire": A rogue on the run bumbles his way to becoming an instrument of Fate during the time of the Crusades.

"The Voice of El-Lil": A pair of explorers find danger and romance in a lost city. 

"The Fire of Asshurbanipal": An American adventurer and his Afghani friend encounter threats from both monsters and men while searching for a legendary treasure.

Don't miss Howard's other historical fictions
in the first Oriental Adventures collection, and The Deadly Sword of Cormac.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
