Author:
: 3.3 of 5, readers votes - 3
Genre: heroic
Annotation:With Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard created more than the greatest action hero of the twentieth centuryhe also launched a genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery. But Conan wasnt the first archetypaladventurer to spring from Howards fertile imagination.
*He was . . . a strange blending of Puritan and Cavalier, with a touch of the ancient philosopher, and more than a touch of the pagan. . . . A hunger in his soul drove him on and on, an urge to right all wrongs, protect all weaker things. . . . Wayward and restless as the wind, he was consistent in only one respecthe was true to his ideals of justice and right. Such was Solomon Kane.
*Collected in this volume, lavishly illustrated by award-winning artist Gary Gianni, are all of the stories and poems that make up the thrilling saga of the dour and deadly Puritan, Solomon Kane. Together they constitute a sprawling epic of weird fantasy adventure that stretches from sixteenth-century England to remote African jungles where no white man has set foot. Here are shudder-inducing tales of vengeful ghosts and bloodthirsty demons, of dark sorceries wielded by evil men and women, all opposed by a grim avenger armed with a fanatics faith and a warriors savage heart.
*This edition also features exclusive story fragments, a biography of Howard by scholar Rusty Burke, and In Memoriam, H. P. Lovecrafts moving tribute to his friend and fellow literary genius.
