Overview

"The Frost-Giant's Daughter" (a.k.a. “The Gods of the North”) is a brief tale set somewhere in frozen Nordheim, geographically situated north of Conan's homeland, Cimmeria. Conan is depicted by Howard as a youthful Cimmerian mercenary traveling among the golden-haired Aesir in a war party. Shortly before the story begins, a hand-to-hand battle has occurred on an icy plain. Eighty men ("four score") have perished in bloody combat, and Conan alone survives the battlefield where Wulfhere's Aesir "reavers" fought the Vanir "wolves" of Bragi, a Vanir chieftain. Thus, the story opens. Following this fierce battle against the red-haired Vanir, Conan the Cimmerian, lying exhausted on the corpse-strewn battlefield, is visited by a beautiful, condescending and semi-nude woman who leads him into a trap.
This is a short story originally released as “Gods of the North” in the pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1932.
NOTE: Ryetown Classics has chosen to present the Conan Series in chronological order, not in the order they were originally released.
