Conan the Barbarian
The new Conan novel
Conan the Buccaneer
di Lin Carter e L. Sprague de Camp
Sphere Books, 1977, pp. 157
Illustrazione di copertina di Frank Frazetta

In search of treasure and a beautiful princess Conan set sail for the unknown. His hunt took him to devil-ridden lands, where he must battle with the demonic powers of Thoth-Ammon. It was a fight the Cimmerian relished. Crom! A man could die but once. Enough to combat the terror when one met it with steel in the hand and battle madness in the heart. He, Conan, would take his chances on the Nameless Isle, ahead of him on the rim of the world!

A complete adventure by L. Sprague de Camp and
Lin Carter, based on the fabulous character created by Robert E. Howard. With a new
Introduction by Lin Carter.

All'interno del volume la frase: "To the greatest living creator of swordsplay-and-sorcery, J.R.R. Tolkein". Da notare l'errore di Tolkien anziché Tolkien.
