Conan of Venarium (Tor, 2003) is a fantasy novel written by Harry Turtledove and edited by Teresa Nielsen Hayden featuring Robert E. Howard's seminal sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian.

The story is set in Conan's youth, not long after his people, the Cimmerians, were conquered by Aquilonia. The Aquilonians establish the outpost of Venarium. The novel then describes the events leading up to the fall of Venarium and Conan's important role in bring about that crucial victory. While these events are referenced in Howard's canon, Turltedove's novel does not strictly maintain continuity with Howard's tales.

Administrator NoteEdit

As Turtledove uses Howard's characters and settings more extensively in Conan in Venarium than in similar shared universe works, the administrators of this wiki will not be creating articles for the novel at this time. We refer users to Conan of Venarium at the Conan Wiki for more information on this work.
