While there has been considerable discussion regarding the contribution made by L Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter to the world of Robert E Howard's hero, there's no doubt that their novelization of the movie script holds up as a well-told Conan story.

These are just a few of the editions of the novel printed worldwide.

CONAN LE BARBARE
Hardback, Editions GP, Paris, France, 1982. Translated by J Headline and H Monrocq.

CONAN LE BARBARE
Paperback, Editions J'ai Lu, Paris, France, 1982. Translated by J Headline and H Monrocq.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CONAN THE BARBARIAN
Paperback, Sphere Books, London, UK, 1982.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CONAN DER BARBAR
Paperback, Wilhelm Heyne, München, Germany, 1982. Translated by Lore Strassl.
This German version is unusual in having photo inserts, maps (by Erhard Ringer) and hand-drawn illustrations (by Klaus D Schiemann).

Is that your own collection?

Well, the german version is excellent, and I wonder about the maps and drawings you mention, guess they are also related to the movie? A map of Conan's travels maybe? And that drawing of a warrior with a helmet besides kid Conan and mum, is that Thulsa-Doom or something? Who made the drawings? rabbit

Due to popular demand, I've now added photos of the illustrations and maps in the German Heyne printing of the "Conan" novel. And yeah, all the books I've shown here are mine.

What's the De Camp/Carter novelization like? Does it just stick very close to the film, coming off like a synopsis, or is it a good read in it's own right?

It's actually a great read - and since it was adapted from an early draft of the script, there are all sorts of incidents and bits of dialogue that are different/longer/surprising. Read it!
