• Valeria was a character in the story Red Nails (1936) but effectively becomes Belit, Conan’s pirate queen lover from The Queen of the Black Coast (1978); Thulsa Doom is really Conan’s continuing nemesis, the Sygian sorceror Thoth-Ammon but is now named after a character from Howard’s King Kull stories. Pastiches are made of various elements from stories - the crucifixion of Conan from A Witch Shall be Born (1936) and the substance of the story The Thing in the Crypt (which is actually a pastiche from a Conan story by L. Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter). Source:
