Series: Solomon Kane

Summary (From the publisher):

Solomon Kane follows The Hand of Kane and The Moon of Skulls as the third and final volume in the series involving Robert E. Howard's first sword and sorcery hero.

Here is the first Solomon Kane story to see print, Red Shadows, a novelette which originally appeared in the August 1928 issue of Weird Tales magazine. It is a tale of swordplay and sorcery, of sixteenth century France, and of darkest Africa; a typical Howard swashbuckler. The Right Hand of Doom and Rattle of Bones are two short stories of stark horror. The Castle of the Devil is a fragment of which little is known; if Howard ever finished it, then the conclusion is lost somewhere in the years between Howard's death and the present.

Blades of the Brotherhood is a novelette of straight adventure - of smugglers, pirates, and swordplay in another century. The Return of Sir Richard Grenville is a delicate poetic weird episode, and Solomon Kane's Homecoming which was first published in the semi-professional magazine Fanciful Tales in 1936 a short time after Howard's death is the final bit, closing out the long career of Solomon Kane in a mystic grandeur that is indeed fitting.
