Conan the Rebel - Poul Anderson

A softer, more erudite Conan is to be found here. "My dearest wishes","My beloved".

This book lags a little in the second half, not coincidentally I think with the lack of Belit.

Conan goes in search of the Queen of the Black Coast's family for her, and ends up fighting yet another Stygian sorcerer.

Dumbest monarch of the year award to Mentuphera.

"Why, if the Sun Master can do no better than Conan, what is to fret about?"

These Set worshippers never learn, it seems.
