Just finished this and returned it to the library today (The sage was pleased). This is a great collection of S&S short stories. As in most cases when you have a collection of stories there were a few boners, this happens. All in all though I liked most everything I read. I believe there was somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 to 15 stories. I grabbed this from the library because I wanted to read a Grey Mouser story, and it was the only title in the entire library that had Fritz Lieber in it. Interestingly enough that story was one of the boners! I dug "Undertow" and "The Coral Heart", the short story about Conan was also great (I'll be picking up more Howard titles shortly). The story by C.L Moore & Howard were written in 1932 which totally blew my mind. Also the story written by George R.R. Martin was worth a read.
I rate this 3 pulls on "Old Toby" outta 5.
You can grab this on amazon for fairly cheap like $10 its worth it grab it. http://www.amazon.ca/Sword-Sorcery-Anthology-Robert-Howard/dp/1616960698
