“Swords of the Red Brotherhood”, set in a historical framework, is a recognizable variant of “The Black Stranger”, taking place in fictional fantasy world of Conan The Barbarian.

The title story features Terence Vulmea, aka Black Vulmea, who was born a 17th-century Irish peasant, and carried his vendetta with the English oppressors of his country to the waters of the Caribbean. He is one of Robert E. Howard’s lesser known characters; more of his exploits were later added by David C. Smith.
