Publisher's Summary

Truly heroic fantasy at its best, this volume contains "The Servants of Bit-Yakin", "Beyond the Black River", "The Black Stranger", "The Man-Eaters of Zamboula", and "Red Nails", which is perhaps Conan's most famous adventure.

    Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library.

    "Just brilliant!"

    The stories come to life with Todd Mclaren's narration. I like the the slightly Celtic accent he gives Conan. These are the way these stories were meant to heard.
    For the life of me I cannot imagine why L.Sprague Decamp, Lin Carter or anyone else had to make ANY changes to the original stories. These are just perfect the way they are.
    Wondering when the "Bloody Crown" will appear on Audible. It's already on audio and I hope they keep Mclaren as the reader.

    Story
    "By Crom! What a Listening Experience!!!"
    If you could sum up The Conquering Sword of Conan in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating, Riveting, Compelling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Conquering Sword of Conan?

    Conan tricking Nafertari. Who does she think she was, trying to get him to do all this stuff for him, after he completes even more missions. He never said a word, took that ring and was out!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The strangling of Baal-pteor... i can't help it. I read this scene about 2 years ago, and was happy to know that this book had Shadows in Zamboula.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a different sort of Conan fan. I started off, as a young child reading my brothers Savage Sword of Conan mags, then getting into myself, reading hundreds of regular Conan and King Conan books of Marvel. Saw the Conan movies, got treated to 2 different Cartoon Conan series, then took it upon myself to star reading the non-Robert Howard created books like Conan The Wanderer etc. Now i find myself, being fully versed in Howard's work, as with the work of others as sort of an authoritarian of sorts. I can't tell you how many times i've read / listened to Red Nails.

    "WHAT A WASTE"

    This is the worst narrator I have ever had to suffer through, the story okay at best... buyer would better be served looking elsewhere.
