One of the strangest stories ever written—the tale of a barbarian adventurer, a woman pirate, and a weird roofed city inhabited by the most peculiar race of men ever spawned! VALERIA, a woman pirate forced to join a mercenary army, killed an officer and fled into the wilderness. Conan, a Cimmerian, followed her, and caught up with her in a forest after a long pursuit. And that was just the beginning of this great yarn. This book contains the original text as it first appeared in WEIRD TALES pulp magazine as well as all of the original illustrations which accompanied this serial. This was the last Conan story written by Robert E. Howard and was published posthumously.
The Essential Conan is a collection of Conan short stories written by Robert E. Howard. The book was published in 1998 by the Science Fiction Book Club. It collects the editions of the Conan books, edited by Karl Edward Wagner and published by Berkley Books in 1977. Most of the stories originally appeared in the magazines Weird Tales, The Phantagraph and The Howard Collector. The Wagner editions were the first to virtually reproduce Howard’s original stories without any editorial changes other than typo fixes.
With its premium blue leather binding, a “hubbed” spine accented with true 22kt gold, and gilded page ends, this luxurious volume is the state-of-the-art in fine bookmaking. This is a hysterically expensive version of Pulp-Lit productions book.
