Before I knew who Frazetta was, in fact before I knew who Conan was, I knew I had to read a book with a cover like this. I bought my first Conan book, at a 7-11 in Lacey, Washington while our family was on vacation. I did it based on the cover alone.
Never judge a book by its cover? Not a strictly true maxim when Frank Frazetta was the cover artist. Thanks Frank, because of your art, an entire world opened up to me.
