    Weird Tales - December 1932 (Popular Fiction) Condition: FN+. This issue's story "The Phoenix on the Sword" by Robert E. Howard introduced the barbarian anti-hero Conan the Cimmerian to the world, and the character has endured to this day (In fact, the character has returned to Marvel comics, and a Conan TV series, assorted books, games, and other media projects are expected to debut throughout 2019). The memorable cover is by J. Allen St. John. This is the nicest copy we've encountered, and we haven't seen one with a grade of FN- or better in five years. The covers are complete and unfaded. The spine shows some fading and soiling, but is also complete. The pages are tan but supple, with only the slightest traces of brittleness. Bookery's Guide to Pulps FN value = $1,200.
