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.

Weird Tales 1932 November

Bran Mak Morn, King of the Picts, vows vengeance on Titus Sulla, a Roman governor, after witnessing the crucifixion of a fellow Pict. He seeks forbidden aid from the Worms of the Earth, a race of creatures who Bran Mak Morn’s ancestors banished from their kingdom centuries ago. They were once men, but millennia of living underground caused them to become monstrous and semi-reptilian.

Searching for a contact with these creatures, Bran Mak Morn encounters a witch who lives in a secluded hut, shunned by her neighbors, who was born from a sexual encounter between one of the “Worms” and a human woman. The witch’s price for helping him is “one night of love” which her human-half craves – as men in general are repelled by her reptilian traits. Bran Mak Morn, though also himself repelled, agrees to pay the price. In exchange, she tells him of a barrow where “The Black Stone”, a religious artifact of great importance to the “Worms”, is hidden.

Weird Tales 1933 March

“The Tower of the Elephant” is one of the original short stories starring the fictional sword and sorcery hero Conan the Cimmerian, written by American author Robert E. Howard. It is set in the pseudo-historical Hyborian Age and concerns Conan infiltrating a perilous tower in order to steal a fabled gem from an evil sorcerer named Yara. Due to its unique insights into the Hyborian world and atypical science fiction elements, the story is considered a classic of Conan lore and is often cited by Howard scholars as one of his best tales.[1]

Weird Tales 1933 September

“The Slithering Shadow” is one of the original short stories starring Conan the Cimmerian. First published in the September 1933 issue of Weird Tales magazine. “The Slithering Shadow” is the original title, but the story is also known as “Xuthal of the Dusk” in further publications. It’s set in the pseudo-historical Hyborian Age, and concerns Conan discovering a lost city in a remote desert while encountering a Lovecraftian demon known as Thog.

Weird Tales 1933 December

Old Garfield’s Heart was first published in Weird Tales in December of 1933 and is generally labelled as a “Horror Story”. It takes place shortly after the end of the Wild West, but perhaps it falls squarely into the “Weird West” genre. The story is about an frontiersman, Old Garfield, that has lived as long as anyone can remember. The story is told through the eyes of an unnamed narrator who believes the tales told by Old Garfield are nothing more than whims of fancy or tall tales.
