Synopsis for "Flame Winds of Lost Khitai!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Conan the Barbarian #32.

Conan, on a mission from Narim-Bey, his commanding officer in Aghrapur, is smuggled into Wan Tegri by a shepherd. The sky above the city is covered in a reddish, harmless flame, and Conan's job is to assess if Wan Tengri is worth King Yildiz's efforts to conquer. Upon his arrival in he city, Conan steals a purse from a passerby, and is surprised that the magical flame wind whispers to him to halt. The wind also tells the guards where Conan is, and soon he is chased by several soldiers. He shakes them and heads to Tsien Hui to cash in the gems he has stolen. Unfortunately, the purse belonged to a wizard, who magically teleports the gems away and replaces them with a viper. Frustrated, Conan kills the viper just as the soldiers find him once again. He escapes into Tsien Hui's harem chamber and lingers a few moments with the women there. A beautiful blonde explains that the only exit is through a secret passage under the pool, and she takes Conan underwater. True to her word, a cavern leads her and Conan out, but while they are under, she reveals her true monstrous form, that of a tentacles sea creature. She entangles Conan and stings him repeatedly with her suckers until he finally frees his sword and slays her. Desperate for air, Conan swims toward a light source and climbs out of a pool elsewhere on the estate. He collapses in pain and exhaustion, not noticing the slouching, shadowed form moving towards him.

Synopsis for "Death and 7 Wizards!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Conan the Barbarian #33.

The beggar Bourtai hovers over Conan, intending on robbing what he thinks is a corpse. The barbarian comes to and forces Bourtai to lead him off the grounds. Bourtai leads him through a cave system to the hideout of the local thieves' guild, and Conan, having once plied his trade as a thief, feels right at home. Bourtai explains how seven wizards came to Wan Tengri and overthrew the previous king and now rule the city with magic and terror. Conan also learns that Kassar, the man who smuggled Conan into the city, has been captured and will be put to death. Feeling responsible, Conan vows to save him, and has Boutrai lead him to the Flam Tower where the wizards rule. The tower itself is surrounded by the magical red flames that cover the city, and each untrusting wizard's personal guard lies ready to attack each other for the slightest reason. Bourtai and Conan sneak into the underground passages of the tower, and the two are separated. Conan comes across the already deceased Kassar, and soon finds himself in an arena, a guest of the seven wizards. For their entertainment, the wizards send tigers and men after Conan, culminating in a beautiful masked woman. When Conan removes the veil, however, he sees only a skull - he is now facing Death herself.
