With Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard created more than the greatest action hero of the twentieth century-he also launched a genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery. But Conan was not the first archetypal adventurer to spring from Howard's 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 respect-he was true to his ideals of justice and right. Such was Solomon Kane. Collected in this volume are all of the stories that make up the thrilling saga of the dour and deadly Puritan: "Skulls in the Stars," "The Right Hand of Doom," "Red Shadows," "Rattle of Bones," "The Castle of the Devil," "Death's Black Riders," "The Moon of Skulls," "The One Black Stain," "The Blue Flame of Vengeance," "The Hills of the Dead," "Hawk of Basti," "The Return of Sir Richard Grenville," "Wings in the Night," "The Footfalls Within," "The Children of Asshur," and "Solomon Kane's Homecoming."

    " A book of short stories about Solomon Kane, Robert E Howard's Puritan avenging angel. Howard's prose is so visceral that he could make an IRA prospectus thrilling. Great book! "

    " Oh, the pulpy goodness! "

    " Great dark and gothic fantasy from a master of the genre. For anyone doesn't know, Howard is also the creator of Conan. "

    " First of all: REH is the greatest. Forget about Muhammed Ali. Howard's the all-time greatest. First time reading him, I nearly shat in my cereal. Conan's w/out a doubt, THE fantasy hero. Ask Phillip K. Dick. He knows. (just jokez; RIP, baby) Anyway, I'm not gonna lie, I've read this collection of stories and poems of the legendary dour puritan swordsman before. A lot. And slowly. (haha..tip o' the hat to j. o'barr) But, I'm always compelled to reread the mo'fo' because the writing's just so damn great. I shite you not. These strange, weird tales of horror are essential reading for any fan of fiction, not just the sword&sorcery crowd. This is also explosive historical fiction. Wicked-explosive historial fiction. Never mind Red Badge Of Courage. (great read; literary classic; Crane kicks arse, but...) Read it and weep-puh!! "
