"The Black Stranger" was originally written as a Conan story that was not accepted. 
REH rewrote it into a Black Vulmea story ("Swords of the Red Brotherhood"), which was also not accepted.
L Sprague de Camp
rewrote the original Conan story into a different Conan story ("The Treasure of Tranicos"). For publication in Fantasy Magazine #1, the story was abridged, edited by L Sprague de Camp, and re-written further by Lester del Rey. 

Hence, there are 3 different versions of this story,

This story was originally written in 1929, titled "The Blue Flame of Vengeance", and featured Solomon Kane. REH failed to sell it, perhaps because it had no weird element, and hence WEIRD TALES would likely not take it.  REH rewrote it in 1932, changing the hero to Malachi Grim, changing the title to "Blades of the Brotherhood", and shortening the story by a couple of pages. There is no record to show to which magazines this story was offered, if any.
