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.

And on the instant crypt, tomb and ancient vanished, and Conan, bewildered, sprang from his couch in the great golden-domed chamber. And as he stood, bewildered at the strangeness of his dream, he realized that he was gripping his sword in his hand.
