    Kuttner?s Elak and Raynor - A ?Must Read? for Leiber, Lovecraft, Smith, and Howard fans Context: The Father of Sword & Sorcery Robert E. Howard dies 1936, and the Weird Tales market needs weird adventures. By 1938, Henry Kuttner stepped up, in part, with his Elak and Rayno...

    When budding author Henry Kuttner wrote a fan letter to the already established "Weird Tales" favorite C.L. Moore in 1936, little did he know that the object of his admiration was a woman...a woman who, four years later, would become his wife, and with whom a collaboration would begin ...

    Elak of Atlantis, by Henry Kuttner. Planet Stories, 2007, with an introduction by Joe Lansdale. This anthology of some of Henry Kuttner?s early work contains the four Elak of Atlantis stories that he wrote, plus two Prince Raynor tales. The Elak stories are: in order of first publ...

    The Diversion Books ebook does not feature the Prince Raynor stories, instead holding them for a separate 64 page, $3 download, which on a cost-density basis seems a dubious proposition. The Gateway books edition may contain both Elak and Raynor, but isn't available to me, to the US, o...

    Muy a lo Conan, y no es para menos, pues se empleo como sustituto tras la muerte de Robert en la famosa revista que publicaba sus relatos. Tiene las imperfecciones del pulp de aquellos tiempos: mucho descontrol y desorden en la narración. Y sus cosas positivas: acción, sangre, mon...

    The four stories contained in this book were entertaining, but a mixed bag. The two longest stories, "Thunder in the Dawn" and "Dragon Moon" felt a bit unfocused, with extended, almost psychedelic interludes that reminded me of C. L. Moore's (Kuttner's wife) "Black God's Kiss." Unfo...

    I know Kuttner from his Mythos fiction and his fine collaborations with his talented wife, Fantasy Grandmaster C L Moore, so I was curious to see how his early pulp fantasy, written in the years just after Robert E. Howard's death held up to the years. Not well. Although there ar...

    Las aventuras de Elak de la Atlántida son solventes, con la cantidad justa de acción y fantasía. La narración es rápida y engancha de principio a fin. No tiene la intensidad ni la poesía de Howard, pero Henry Kuttner es un digno sucesor, su narración es vivaz y adictiva. Me h...

    La edición es excelente. Pocas erratas. Las historias no son gran cosa. A diferencia de Howard, aquí no hay fuerza narrativa, los personajes son poco definidos y planos. Howard creía en lo que escribía. Aquí todo parece un escenario de cartón piedra y el mundo se extiende sólo d...

    Henry Kuttner was primarily a sci-fi writer and my ignorance of him can be laid firmly at that door. This book though contains a collection of his sword & sorcery tales which were apparently published to fill a Conan-shaped void in Weird Tales following Robert E. Howard's demise. ...

    The stories in this volume originally were published in Weird Tales between 1938 and 1940. At first glance, Kuttner's Elak appears to be an unfortunate rip-off of Howard's Kull of Atlantis. (One can STRONGLY assume an Howard influence here) Is there any other reason or imaginable expla...

    Le quattro storie di ELAK raccolte nel volume ci presentano Atlantide con i suoi territori e città. La prima e l?ultima storia riguardano da vicino Elak, il suo passato, sebbene non troppo approfondito, e la sua famiglia. Sono state scritte a distanza di anni e l?ultima sembra qu...

    Sword and sorcery in Atlantis. Some perfectly entertaining stuff. Playful too. Kuttner adds a touch of humor to these tales of dark gods, sorcerers, would be conquerors and deposed royalty. He uses Lovecraft a bit much maybe, or is it that others have used it a bit much since then? For...

    I found it difficult to actually like the characters, they all seemed so very unrealistic - they seemed to lack realistic flaws and issues, having been built upon stereotypes of characters/heroes of other fantasy based adventures - I'm thinking stereotypes had to begin some where and s...

    An inferior Conan (a contemporary hero) or less satisfying Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser, the Elak stories were entertaining enough but not more than that. Two Prince Gaynor stories are included as well; they're like shadows of the Elak stories, and the collection would be stronger with...

    A very good collection of short fantasy stories. Good characters and plot. Kuttner is an early master of the fantasy and SiFi era, mostly forgotten today but a great writer. Very recommended ...

    Henry Kuttner was primarily a sci-fi writer and my ignorance of him can be laid firmly at that door. This book though contains a collection of his sword & sorcery tales which were apparently published to fill a Conan-shaped void in Weird Tales following Robert E. Howard's demise. ...

    The stories in this volume originally were published in Weird Tales between 1938 and 1940. At first glance, Kuttner's Elak appears to be an unfortunate rip-off of Howard's Kull of Atlantis. (One can STRONGLY assume an Howard influence here) Is there any other reason or imaginable expla...

    Le quattro storie di ELAK raccolte nel volume ci presentano Atlantide con i suoi territori e città. La prima e l?ultima storia riguardano da vicino Elak, il suo passato, sebbene non troppo approfondito, e la sua famiglia. Sono state scritte a distanza di anni e l?ultima sembra qu...

    Sword and sorcery in Atlantis. Some perfectly entertaining stuff. Playful too. Kuttner adds a touch of humor to these tales of dark gods, sorcerers, would be conquerors and deposed royalty. He uses Lovecraft a bit much maybe, or is it that others have used it a bit much since then? For...

    I found it difficult to actually like the characters, they all seemed so very unrealistic - they seemed to lack realistic flaws and issues, having been built upon stereotypes of characters/heroes of other fantasy based adventures - I'm thinking stereotypes had to begin some where and s...

    An inferior Conan (a contemporary hero) or less satisfying Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser, the Elak stories were entertaining enough but not more than that. Two Prince Gaynor stories are included as well; they're like shadows of the Elak stories, and the collection would be stronger with...

    A very good collection of short fantasy stories. Good characters and plot. Kuttner is an early master of the fantasy and SiFi era, mostly forgotten today but a great writer. Very recommended ...

    When budding author Henry Kuttner wrote a fan letter to the already established "Weird Tales" favorite C.L. Moore in 1936, little did he know that the object of his admiration was a woman...a woman who, four years later, would become his wife, and with whom a collaboration would begin ...

    The Diversion Books ebook does not feature the Prince Raynor stories, instead holding them for a separate 64 page, $3 download, which on a cost-density basis seems a dubious proposition. The Gateway books edition may contain both Elak and Raynor, but isn't available to me, to the US, o...

    The four stories contained in this book were entertaining, but a mixed bag. The two longest stories, "Thunder in the Dawn" and "Dragon Moon" felt a bit unfocused, with extended, almost psychedelic interludes that reminded me of C. L. Moore's (Kuttner's wife) "Black God's Kiss." Unfo...

    Muy a lo Conan, y no es para menos, pues se empleo como sustituto tras la muerte de Robert en la famosa revista que publicaba sus relatos. Tiene las imperfecciones del pulp de aquellos tiempos: mucho descontrol y desorden en la narración. Y sus cosas positivas: acción, sangre, mon...

    The four stories contained in this book were entertaining, but a mixed bag. The two longest stories, "Thunder in the Dawn" and "Dragon Moon" felt a bit unfocused, with extended, almost psychedelic interludes that reminded me of C. L. Moore's (Kuttner's wife) "Black God's Kiss." Unfo...

    I know Kuttner from his Mythos fiction and his fine collaborations with his talented wife, Fantasy Grandmaster C L Moore, so I was curious to see how his early pulp fantasy, written in the years just after Robert E. Howard's death held up to the years. Not well. Although there ar...

    Las aventuras de Elak de la Atlántida son solventes, con la cantidad justa de acción y fantasía. La narración es rápida y engancha de principio a fin. No tiene la intensidad ni la poesía de Howard, pero Henry Kuttner es un digno sucesor, su narración es vivaz y adictiva. Me h...

    When budding author Henry Kuttner wrote a fan letter to the already established "Weird Tales" favorite C.L. Moore in 1936, little did he know that the object of his admiration was a woman...a woman who, four years later, would become his wife, and with whom a collaboration would begin ...

    Henry Kuttner was primarily a sci-fi writer and my ignorance of him can be laid firmly at that door. This book though contains a collection of his sword & sorcery tales which were apparently published to fill a Conan-shaped void in Weird Tales following Robert E. Howard's demise. ...

    The stories in this volume originally were published in Weird Tales between 1938 and 1940. At first glance, Kuttner's Elak appears to be an unfortunate rip-off of Howard's Kull of Atlantis. (One can STRONGLY assume an Howard influence here) Is there any other reason or imaginable expla...

    The four stories contained in this book were entertaining, but a mixed bag. The two longest stories, "Thunder in the Dawn" and "Dragon Moon" felt a bit unfocused, with extended, almost psychedelic interludes that reminded me of C. L. Moore's (Kuttner's wife) "Black God's Kiss." Unfo...

    I know Kuttner from his Mythos fiction and his fine collaborations with his talented wife, Fantasy Grandmaster C L Moore, so I was curious to see how his early pulp fantasy, written in the years just after Robert E. Howard's death held up to the years. Not well. Although there ar...

    Las aventuras de Elak de la Atlántida son solventes, con la cantidad justa de acción y fantasía. La narración es rápida y engancha de principio a fin. No tiene la intensidad ni la poesía de Howard, pero Henry Kuttner es un digno sucesor, su narración es vivaz y adictiva. Me h...

    Henry Kuttner was primarily a sci-fi writer and my ignorance of him can be laid firmly at that door. This book though contains a collection of his sword & sorcery tales which were apparently published to fill a Conan-shaped void in Weird Tales following Robert E. Howard's demise. ...

    The stories in this volume originally were published in Weird Tales between 1938 and 1940. At first glance, Kuttner's Elak appears to be an unfortunate rip-off of Howard's Kull of Atlantis. (One can STRONGLY assume an Howard influence here) Is there any other reason or imaginable expla...

    Le quattro storie di ELAK raccolte nel volume ci presentano Atlantide con i suoi territori e città. La prima e l?ultima storia riguardano da vicino Elak, il suo passato, sebbene non troppo approfondito, e la sua famiglia. Sono state scritte a distanza di anni e l?ultima sembra qu...

    Sword and sorcery in Atlantis. Some perfectly entertaining stuff. Playful too. Kuttner adds a touch of humor to these tales of dark gods, sorcerers, would be conquerors and deposed royalty. He uses Lovecraft a bit much maybe, or is it that others have used it a bit much since then? For...

    An inferior Conan (a contemporary hero) or less satisfying Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser, the Elak stories were entertaining enough but not more than that. Two Prince Gaynor stories are included as well; they're like shadows of the Elak stories, and the collection would be stronger with...

    A very good collection of short fantasy stories. Good characters and plot. Kuttner is an early master of the fantasy and SiFi era, mostly forgotten today but a great writer. Very recommended ...

    Elak of Atlantis (Planet Stories) by Henry Kuttner (2007) ...

    This Kuttner fellow could really write. Going to dig into more of his and C.L. Moore's work soon! ...

    OK, but not a top of the pile ...

    My favorite Planet Stories book so far. An adventure story, pure as a baby seal. It rings my D&D bell like few other fantasies. ...
