Robert E. Howard, "The Man on the Ground" in Weird Tales, Vol. 22 No. 1, July 1933.

Not an oft-read story of Howard's, this gem is about the power of hatred, and its ability to overcome death itself. "The Man on the Ground" highlights the things that Howard is good at: thrilling action, violence, and the American West!  

Incidentally, the July 1933 issue of Weird Tales is spectacular. Along with Howard's short story, the issue contains H. P. Lovecraft's "The Dreams in the Witch-House," Hazel Heald's "The Horror in the Museum, and Clark Ashton Smith's "Ubbo-Sathla."
