The most impressive part of Robert E. Howard's work is their detail and apparent attention to chronology. The precision of Horward's tales seem as if he is more of a historian than a writer. The world of Hyperborea has diversity in climate, culture, terrain, and ethnicity that can only be rivaled by the real world. Conan's wanderlust, brute strength, and surprising ingenuity land him a spot at the top of my list. While "barbarians" are thought to be uncivilized savages, Conan has a worldliness about him that can only be the product of his travels and varying occupational interests. A quick peek at Conan's resume reveals him to have experience (and success) as a thief, a reaver, a slayer, an outlaw, a mercenary, a pirate, and a king.
