The Savage Sword of Conan, Volume 3 - Roy Thomas Three stars primarily because it contains what is (arguably) Howard's best Conan tale - "Beyond the Black River," which has no scantily clad maid nor lost city. It's the tale of Conan, Balthus and a dog, and their efforts to thwart a Pictish invasion of Aquilonia. Technically and in terms of story, it's quite good.

This volume also contains a good map of the Hyborian Continent.

The rest of the stories are either "average" Conan or pastiches. Still, if you're a Conan fan, they're worth a look.
