Howard, Robert E.: The Stories of El Borak, V.2, 14 Nov.08
El Borak, otherwise known as Francis Xavier Gordon, is a fictional character created by Robert E. Howard. Gordon was a Texan gunfighter from El Paso who had travelled the world and settled in Afghanistan. He is famous across Asia for his exploits in that continent.
The character was originally created when Howard was only ten years old but he did not see print until The Daughter of Erlik Khan in the December 1934 issue of Top-Notch. He is likely to have been inspired by real people such as Richard Francis Burton, John Nicholson, "Chinese" Gordon and Lawrence of Arabia as well as the fiction of Talbot Mundy.
Although Howard is most famous today for his fantasy fiction, the El Borak stories are straight adventure fiction and only Three-Bladed Doom contains a fantasy element.
Westerns in Afganistan.
The book contains:
The Daughter of Erlik Kahn (1934)
Blood of the Gods (1935)
Hawk of the Hills (1935)
Son of the White Wolf (1936)
The Country of the Knife (1937)
Fixed some paragraph formating and better images.

Charlie, guess what? You have forgotten the author's name in the title again. Harry won't be happy with you. But seriously: Please change because it will be hard to do a search on your books otherwise. The format would be: Howard, Robert E.: The Stories of El Borak v 1 10 nov 08.
We do not say this to discourage you but to keep our database clean. Thanks. Your book looks good, btw.
Oh, and you don't have to make a new post to get a new attachment underway or change the title, just do an edit and then go advanced, add your book and change your title. I have to know because it happens to me all the time.
Don (Dr. Drib) posted El Borak already in Sony format, but not in PRC., as far as I could find out.

Changed the title.
Charlie - PLEASE try to remember to get the format right. It really is important, because the thread titles are what books gets indexed on.
