Sample text

In a world of formula and cliché-ridden pulp magazines, Weird Tales often lived up to its subtitle, “The Unique Magazine,” walking a fine line between the magazine’s commercial imperatives and Wright’s literary inclinations. While Lovecraft would often have his tales rejected, unable or unwilling to submit to Wright’s editorial requirements or suggestions, Howard was more flexible. Studying and anticipating his editors’ needs, he had no problem turning out dozens of formula stories – with the occasional gem here and there – for such generic magazines as Fight Stories or Action Stories.

There are dark worlds barely guessed by man, wherein formless monsters stalk – fiends which may be drawn from the Outer Voids to take material shape and rend and devour at the bidding of evil magicians. There is a serpent in your house, oh king – an adder in your kingdom, come up from Stygia, with the dark wisdom of the shadows in his murky soul. As a sleeping man dreams of the serpent which crawls near him, I have felt the foul presence of Set’s neophyte.

As I fought Set, I fight his worshippers and his votaries and his acolytes. ” Wondering, Conan did so, and on the great blade, close to the heavy silver guard, the ancient traced with a bony finger a strange symbol that glowed like white fire in the shadows.

And as he stood, bewildered at the strangeness of his dream, he realized that he was gripping his sword in his hand.
