In the grand tradition of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, these short stories begin the chronicles of Ko Yingh Varuk, a mighty northern barbarian who leaves his clan and ventures into the civilized lands to the south.
Along the way, he encounters evil spirits, fierce soldiers, beleaguered miners, and a princess who is determined to tame him in her bed.
