The covers of the various printings change slightly every so often in the series.
"The Bloodstained God" was originally a Kirby O'Donnell story titled "The Curse of the Crimson God."  It was re-written by de Camp into a Conan story.
"The Snout in the Dark" was an unpublished REH fragment, which came with a synopsis for the remainder of the story.
L. Sprague de Camp completed the story, but was not happy with the result, and gave it to Lin Carter to revise.
Edited by L. Sprague de Camp
Frontispiece: Map of the Hyborian Age
Lancer went backrupt in 1973, but there were numerous later printings by Prestige and Ace, perhaps 20 or more printings total.

The Prestige books are known to exist in at least two states. Some have "DISTRIBUTED BY ACE BOOKS" on the cover with Prestige Books listed as the publisher on the title page. Some have "ACE" on the cover and are stamped with "Prestige" on the copyright page.  

There are also U.K. editions published by Sphere.

The Conan series continued up to the late 1980's and is the basis for numerous licensed as well as bootleg non-English editions. The Conan series is by far the most reproduced REH series in the world. It is quite possible that over one million copies of this book are in print.
