Go Ten Rounds with Steve Costigan, Champion of the Forecastle!
Although best remembered for his groundbreaking fantasy fiction and for creating Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) was far more prolific in the area of humor stories, writing spoofs of mysteries, and humor-drenched westerns and boxing stories. Out of his many creations, he wrote the most about Steve Costigan, a merchant seaman whose pride in his skills as a boxer caused him almost as much trouble as his love of booze, love of pretty women, and loyalty to his ship-mates and his bulldog Mike.
Fists of Foolishness: The Tales of Sea-faring Boxing Champ Steve Costigan is the first of two volumes collecting all the stories featuring the character that were published during Howard's life-time. It's an anthology of ten stories that shows Howard writing in a style very different from the oft-reprinted tales of Conan and Solomon Kane, one where his prose is light-hearted and down-to-earth but no less intense when it comes to the action.
SPECIAL BONUS: Included in this Onebookshelf.com-exclusive edition is a complete roleplaying game, The Violent Worlds of Robert E. Howard. Using the ROLF! Rules System, and designed by veteran game designer Steve Miller and ROLF!-originator L.L. Hundal, this game is intended to capture the fun of a Steve Costigan brawl, but can easily be used to emulate the gore-spattered rampages of Conan.
Complete your collection of Steve Costigan adventures with Volume 2: Shanghaied Mitts!
Featuring eleven more classic stories by Robert E. Howard, and a roleplaying game adventure by Steve Miller.
