Synopsis for "The Curse of the Conjurer!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Conan the Barbarian #46.

Conan travels south through the Border Kingdoms in the region known as the Haunted Land. He is being followed by Yemli, humanoid demons who are keeping their distance, but herding Conan to some unknown destination. Eventually, they send him to Merdoramon, a magician who tasks Conan with taking a magical amulet to Themas Herklar, regent of Phalkar, to the east. A bag of gold makes the deal attractive to Conan, and he falls asleep to find the odd magician gone in the morning. Conan begins the journey and enters the small village of Sfanol, where he sees a girl, Stefanya, in the process of being burned at the stake for her service to the sorcerer Zoqquanor. Never one to let a pretty girl die, Conan rescues her and discovers that the girl is mystically bonded to Zoqquanor, and though the sorcerer has died, she must ensure the safety of Zoqquanor's remains lest she die herself. They head to Zoqquanor's keep, which was recently razed by the villagers, only to find the place protected by the living statue Shokkoth of the Many stones. Conan manages to use the chemicals in Zoqquanor's lab to melt the creature into its component stones, and in the next room, they find the body of Zoqquanor, and Stefanya vows to return the sorcerer to life.

Synopsis for "Goblins in the Moonlight!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Conan the Barbarian #47.

Stefanya, determined to find a way to rouse her master Zoqquanor from his state of death, convinces Conan to leave with the body that very night rather than risk the protection spells of the sorcerer's keep. Pausing only to change her outfit, during which Conan notices an odd star-shaped birthmark on Stefanya's hip, the two quickly make a travois and begin their journey. After traveling most of the night, Conan stops at some ruins to sleep but is awakened by Stefanya as a band of pig-like dwarves attacks, having heard of Zoqquanor's state and wishing to gain revenge on the sorcerer for some slight. Conan fights them, but the two realize they must continue on without rest, and continue their journey east.
