Howard sold two stories to Thrilling Adventures. This issue contains ‘The Treasure of Tartary’. It was originally titled Gold From Tartary. It was received by Howard’s agent on 15 November 1933 and Howard earned $42.50 for its publication.

Kirby O’Donnell is a fictional character created by Robert E. Howard. He is an American treasure hunter in early-twentieth century Afghanistan disguised as a Kurdish merchant, “Ali el Ghazi”. Howard only wrote three stories about O’Donnell, one of which was not published within his lifetime.

O’Donnell searches the forbidden city of Shahrazar, ruled by the Uzbek Shaibar Khan, for the lost treasure of Khuwarezm (which, legend states, was hidden to protect it from Genghis Khan).
