Synopsis

Kull Stories is a short story by American fantasy fiction writer Robert E. Howard. It was originally published in the magazine Weird Tales, set in his fictional Thurian Age.

The Shadow Kingdom:
The story introduces Kull himself, the setting of Valusia, the supporting character Brule the Spear-slayer and the Serpent Men. The story starts shortly after the Atlantean barbarian Kull has conquered Valusia and become its King. Kull is invited to a feast by the Pictish ambassador to Valusia, Ka-nu the Ancient. Despite the fact that the Picts are the ancient enemies of the Atlanteans, Ka-nu confides in Kull and tells him to expect the arrival of Brule the Spear-slayer later.

The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune:
“Kull, King of Valusia, suffers from a severe depression that not even his friend and ally Brule the Spear-slayer can rouse him from. A mysterious woman later whispers to Kull that he should visit Tuzun Thune, a wizard of the Elder Race, who supposedly knows the secrets of life. Kull is intrigued, and set off at once.  Kull arrives at the wizard’s home, known as the House of a Thousand Mirrors, and the two begin to talk. To Kull’s questions regarding the legitimacy of his powers, Tuzun Thune seems to offer evasive answer. Disappointed, Kull says that clearly Thune is just an ordinary man. But Thune points out that all men, from kings to wizards, are just ordinary men.”
