does anyone know if this is where Conan the barbarian came from? it's an okay book
Yes this is one of many of the tales of Conan. If you like this, read “The Phoenix on the Sword” “The Scarlet Citadel” and “The Tower of the Elephant” to really get into his stories. Robert E Howard created the character and others added on. A story called “Red Nails” is also one of my favorites.
Good short book
