Conan – Blood of the Serpent

Blood of the Serpent is a Conan pastiche written by S. M. Stirling. The book also contains Robert E. Howard’s original story Red Nails.

As sword for hire for a mercenary troop, Conan finds himself in Sukhmet, a filthy backwater town south of the River Styx considered “the arse-end of Stygia.” Serving in the company known as Zarallo’s Free Companions, he fights alongside soldiers of fortune from Zingara, Koth, Shem, and other lands—a hard-handed band of killers loyal to anyone who pays them well.
