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.

One of the weaker Conan stories, but this is the one where he kills a vulture with his teeth while nailed to a cross. You can download this entire issue here

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.

This issue includes Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft (both writing a Cthulhu Mythos tale) and Robert Bloch and Otis Adelbert Kline and E. Hoffmann Price and Manly Wade Wellman and Henry Kuttner and August Derleth. The only one missing is Clark Ashton Smith, but he got a letter in, so he’s included too. And then there’s a cover by J. Allen St. John and interior art by Virgil Finlay. This entire issue can be downloaded here.

The cover story by Robert E Howard is a personal favorite of mine. The full text can be read here.
