Conan the Diplomat

Even more incredible material from the raucous days of early Conan. Seriously, this guy had some adventures.

I know what you are saying to yourself: how can a Cimmerian be a diplomat? I give you this as a rejoinder.

Shot down so badly, even the dogs are barking in laughter.

And this ad, loyal Perverse Osmosis readers, is a flat out lie. There was never a Conan novel titled The Thing in the Crypt. There is the deCamp/Carter story in Conan titled “The Thing in the Crypt,” which gets reused in the Conan the Barbarian (1982) movie and then again in the novel adaptation of the movie. But there is no Thing in the Crypt novel. Trust me; I won an award on this stuff.
