The Weird Tales of Conan the Barbarian
By Robert E. Howard
Before he conquered books, comics, and movies, Robert E. Howard's immortal character Conan the Cimmerian was born in the pages of the pulp magazine Weird Tales. Reprinted as they originally appeared in that legendary publication from 1934 to 1936, this ferocious anthology gathers many of the barbarian's most famous adventures. Featured tales include "Red Nails," the tale of a lost city and its corrupt inhabitants; "The Hour of the Dragon," recounting an attempt to depose Conan as king of Aquilonia; and "Beyond the Black River," in which Conan battles the Hyborian Picts. Two additional stories include "The Devil in Iron" and "The People of the Black Circle."
