Breckinridge Elkins Rides Again

Watermarked PDF


Breckinridge Elkins is just a good natured cowboy from the Nevada backcountry town of Bear Creek. He never goes looking for trouble, but between his bizarre relatives, strange neighbors, and just plain bad luck, trouble always seems to find him. An Elkins only knows one way to deal with trouble--and that is to hit or shoot it until it stops being a bother.

Breckinridge Elkins was one of the last major characters to spring from the fertile mind of Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan. Late in his career, Howard had all but stopped writing the fantasy and horror fiction for which he is best remembered today, preferring instead of focus on historical fiction, straight action-adventure, and humorous westerns such as the stories featured in this collection.

If you know and love Robert E. Howard through Conan, you've only seen a fraction of what he was capable of as a writer. Breckinridge Elkins Rides Again is in a complete different genre and a completely different style, and it will give you a completely different view of his underappreciated talent.

 "I would very much like to see Howard be moved out of the footnote status of 'originated the sword and sorcery sub-genre' and into his proper place of respect among America's great authors."
--Editor Steve Miller, on why NUELOW Games produces The Robert E. Howard Collection.

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.
