Edited by L. Sprague de Camp
"Three Bladed Doom" features El Borak and has both a long (42,000 words) and a short (24,000 words) version.   
L. Sprague de Camp rewrote the long version into a Conan story titled "The Flame Knife."

There were numerous printings of this book by Lancer, Prestige, and Ace, perhaps 20 or more printings total.

The Conan series continued up to the late 1980's and is the basis for numerous licensed as well as bootleg non-English editions. The Conan series is by far the most reproduced REH series in the world. It is quite possible that over one million copies of this book are in print.
