  • There are some excellent stories in here, and a poem thrown in for good measure.Solomon Kane is my favourite Robert E. Howard hero, possibly because he's English so I more readily identified with him when I first encountered him in graphic form as a back-up feature in the UK reprint comicSavage Sword of Conan. As well as being English he was also dour and grim, which appealed to my pre/early teen moodiness, and probably appeals now to my middle-age grumpiness!The action in these tales of the Pur [...]


  • My first time reading Solomon Kane and i loved it! I ve read many Conan stories and i must say Solomon is a great character, if not one of my favourites. He is a grim and dour man, a puritan with a strong faith, a swordsman wielding pistols, vanquishes evil in all its forms and has a warriors savage heart! Howard is victorious yet again!


  • has no listing for Robert E. Howard Vol. III: Solomon Kane, published in 1995, but it's edited and finished by Ramsey Campbell, which makes this book the closest thing to what I'm reading.Campbell's introduction is informative and fascinating, and it's interesting to see which stories were simply fragments before being completed by him. It's interesting that one such collaboration was "The Castle of the Devil," when Campbell's name appears nowhere on Dark Horse's comic adaptation of this tale, w [...]


  • I was not terribly impressed with this story. it seems like Howard was depending on the fame of the Solomon Kane name as he wrote it, for there's not much to interest the reader but the appearance of that character. Kane passes sentence on a man whom has murdered his insane cousin: leaving him in the swamp where the ghost was killed, allowing the ghost to perform the execution so it might find peace.The title, while dramatic, is pretty unrelated to the story. It's just a line screamed in fright, [...]


  • This was better than the other book I read by Robert E Howard. Someone once said that all his main characters were the same, and I can kind of see that. I swung back and forth between 3 and 5 stars on this book, and went with three in the end just because his writing is so childish. But his stories are so so so good, and if you're a fan of over-the-top dramatic writing, like I am, these stories are a sheer joy to read. I could quote forever out of this book to show how awesome it is, but it's on [...]


  • Robert E. Howard is my all time favorite writer, but for many years much of his work was heavily edited. This is another of the heavily edited collections of Robert E. Howard's stories. I am a purist when it comes to a writers works. I know some of these stories are no longer PC but they should be read as Howard wrote them and understood that he wrote in another time period. Don't read this book unless you just can't find any others of Howard's unedited books to read. Message me if you need a li [...]


  • One of my favorite Howard characters. I like him better than Conan under many circumstances. He's a more conflicted character. Excellent action and adventure, with some truly horrific elements as well.Merged review:Solomon Kane was one of the earliest of Robert E. Howard's characters and is one of the most unique. He's very different from Conan or Kull, or even from El Borak and his crusaders and middle eastern adventurers.


  • Howard is considered to be the creator of the sword-and-sorcery fantasy genre, just like Tolkien is the father of high fantasy. His best known hero is Conan, but he has created several other characters as well, one of these being Solomon Kane, a 17th century adventurer who battles bad people and evil demons. I had a translated collection of short stories, and some were quite good, though there were some I found boring.


  • I think this except is a great example of why to read Robert E Howard:"I came here," said Kane simply, but what a world of courage and effort was symbolized by that phrase! A long red trail, black shadows and crimson shadows weaving a long devil's dance—marked by flashing swords and the smoke of battle—by faltering words falling like drops of blood from the lips of dying men.
