Fritz Leiber rated The Slithering Shadow (a.k.a. Xuthal of the Dusk) among the worst of the Conan stories, calling it “repetitious and childish, a self-vitiating brew of pseudo-science, stage illusions, and the ‘genuine’ supernatural.” However, that didn’t stop this original Margaret Brundage painting for selling for $42,000.

A wonderful Brundage cover for a great Conan story, but I have to say this is probably the second-worst depiction of The Cimmerian ever officially published. This entire issue can be downloaded here.
