Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Young Jack Hollinster wounds Sir George Banway in a duel before it gets stopped by the local magistrate, with both of them vowing that the next time they meet no one will get in the way. Jack then meets Solomon Kane, himself on the trail of an infamous pirate, Jonas Hardraker - who just happens to be in league with Sir George...

Written in 1929 but rejected by Weird Tales, re-written in 1932 as Blades of the Brotherhood featuring Malachi Grim in the Kane role, this also remained unpublished during Howard's lifetime. First published in 1964 with a supernatural element added by John Pocsik in Over the Edge. Howard's original was first published four years later in Red Shadows as Blades of the Brotherhood! It has since appeared under both titles in:

  • Solomon Kane, Centaur Press (1971)
  • Solomon Kane: Skulls in the Stars, Bantam (1978)
  • Solomon Kane, Baen (1995)
  • The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane, Del Rey (2004)
