"One of the strangest stories ever written -- the tale of a barbarian adventurer, a woman pirate, and a weird roofed city inhabited by the most peculiar race of men ever spawned!"That was the "Weird Tales" editor's original terse blurb for this story's magazine publication. (There was another, longer less coherent, but it wouldn't fit here on the back cover.) Death! Decay! "Red Nails" really is something special. It's classic Conan! Conan lovers consider "Red Nails" to be one of the best, and you know, they make a point.
