An anthology that averages over 4.00, and for me, a fantasy selection at that is a great find. Even more so given the editor has selected stories from one source, although a profilic one, being the magazine in the title.

Conan is featured, together with some of fantasy's favorite characters, in this compendium of swordplay and wizardry, fleet-footed thieves and flat-footed palace guards, witches and man-eating leopards, giants and giant slugs. Long before Arnold attempted a pale copy, Conan the Barbarian held sway over the land, and all was swell. In Lands That Never Were also Includes introductions to each story by the editor.
