Series: Solomon Kane

Summary (From the publisher):

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 wasn't the first archetypal adventurer to spring from Howard's fertile imagination.

Collected in one volume, lavishly illustrated by award-winnng 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 fanatic's faith and a warrior's savage heart.

This edition also features exclusive story fragments, a biography of Howard by scholar Rusty Burke, and "In Memoriam", H.P. Lovecraft's moving tribute to his friend and fellow literary genius.
