ROBERT E. HOWARD - WORMS OF THE EARTH!
PURPLE PROSE DOESN'T GET MORE PURPLE THAN WHEN IT FLOWED FROM THE PEN OF CONAN'S CREATOR, BUT YOU LUST GOTTA LOVE THIS STUFF...
"I am a Pict, a son of those warriors who drove your brutish ancestors before them like chaff before the storm! -- who flooded the land with your blood and heaped high your skulls for a sacrifice to the Moon-Woman! You who fled of old before my race, dare ye now snarl at your master?"
