Synopsis for "The Fangs of the Serpent"
While in Zamboula, Conanis is warned by a necromancer (an entrails-reader) of the danger of Xka'Ahk. He rescues the Brythunian servant girl Tamera from Shamash-Shum-Ukin's men. She says that by using the Fangs of Xka'Ahk they can destroy the demon.

- Citizen 09339-NC7
Synopsis for "Death of the Mind - Rebirth of the Soul"
Citizen 09346-NW2 is condemned for crimes against society, mind-wiped, and exiled to the planet Backworld.
- The Fangs of the Serpent:
- The story references Savage Sword #7, the previous and first appearance of Shamash-Shum-Ukin.
- Shamash-Shum-Ukin states that four or five millenia from then, there's "a certain carpenter who'll be performing miracles". While it seems an obvious reference to Jesus Christ, the datation seems wrong, as the Age of Conan is set about 10,000 BC.
