Although best known for Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard’s Brekenridge Elkins’ comedy westerns are my favourites.

The character of Elkins is laughable yet loveable. What he lacks in brains and common sense, he makes up for with heart and size. He’s as big as Conan, if not bigger, and neither man nor beast can equal him.

The general theme of an Elkins’ tale is that the gullible hero is asked to do someone a favour, which turns out to be a wild goose chase, resulting in Elkins causing mayhem at every step. We get a mixture of violence and conflict, all brushed with humour.

Howard isn’t renowned for comedy, yet I’ve not come across another writer who can equal his wit and timing. He beats all the well-known humourists by a long shot, in my opinion. There’re many laugh-out-loud moments, with very few dull ones.

The story “Mountain Man” is my favourite short – period. I did read this plus all but two stories in this collection previously, so I only read the couple that were new to me, namely the first and last ones.

Individually, I’ve rated these stories three, four, or five stars, but felt that collectively they deserve five stars for sure.

An hilarious read by a genius author. ( )

Some people (mostly, I think of the type of snobs for whom almost any other kind of writing is better than fantasy) profess to believe that Howard's Texan tall tales about Brekinridge Elkins are superior to his Conan stories. I would not go that far,but they are often good fun. Elkins is a cheerful, immensely strong and not over-bright young man from the Humboldt Mountains, as much a hillbilly as a cowboy, ready to fight or frolic at the drop of a six-shooter. ( )

This is a collection of magazine pieces done by REH for eating money, and there's a certain amount of tough guy "humour" associated with the prose. There's not very funny....this collection is for Howard's hard-core fans. ( )

Robert E. Howard wrote both a novella and a short western story titled "A Gent From Bear Creek".

The short tale features Breckenridge Elkins facing more wild goose chases and cross purposes.

There's the usual blend of comedy and action but I prefer the few earlier written stories that feature Elkins to this one. Although I did like this tale, at times it felt lacking in some way. ( )

This is humorous. The 'gent' is an ignorant, somewhat dim, bumbling, super strong hillbilly. He means well, but just seems to stumble into trouble. Only his great strength, a smart girl friend (who's usually mad at him) & a lot of good fortune manage to get him out. I love the book & chuckle my way through it every few years. My wife's opinion of my sense of humor is pretty poor (warped, childish, low) though, so your mileage may vary. ( )
