The plot concerns the resurrection of a mythical demon due to the theft of a sacred dagger, and an unrelated trap that lures Conan to the island fortress roamed by the demon. Due to its plot loopholes and borrowed elements from Iron Shadows in the Moon, some Howard scholars claim this story is the weakest of the early Conan tales.

A classic Conan tale. The story takes place over a night in Zamboula, with political intrigue amidst streets filled with roaming cannibals. It features the character Baal-pteor, one of the few humans in the Conan stories to be a physical challenge for the Cimmerian himself. This entire issue can be downloaded here.

The torn bill in her limp hand matched the half she’d mailed him. He could almost here her say… This Is It, Michael Shayne

This is my 1,000 post here on Pulpcovers.com, and I think a Weird Tales cover by Margaret Brundage is the perfect way to mark this milestone. She is one of the quintessential artists who defined the look of the quintessential Pulp magazine. This entire issue can be downloaded here

A priest… a cop… and a killer. When a prominent rabbi is found stabbed to death in a filthy little oil town…

When a dishonest police captain pins the rap on an innocent bystander…

When an enticing blonde, who knows too much, is taken for a ride…

It’s time for genial, two-fisted Father Shanley and rugged Police Detective Sammy Golden to join forces and clean out a rat hole of vice and murder.
