    Weird Tales "Red Nails" Group (Popular Fiction, 1936) Condition: FN unless otherwise stated. Included is the complete three-part Conan tale "Red Nails" as serialized in the July, August-September, and October (J. Allen St. John cover, tape repair to top and bottom of spine - GD/VG) 1936 issues of Weird Tales. It was the last Conan tale to be published in the magazine, and the last of Robert E. Howard's stories to see print in his lifetime; sadly, the first installment hit the newsstands just before his untimely death. The first two are Julius Schwartz copies and feature Margaret Brundage covers. The spines are complete with mild fading and soiling, the covers are glossy and in great condition, and the pages are supple and off-white. All have been trimmed along the right edge. Approximate Bookery's Guide to Pulps value for group = $400.
