Solomon Kane

Solomon Kane is perhaps the very first great adventure hero of legendary author Robert E. Howard. As an educated, obsessed and grim Puritan, Kane is immensely fascinating: World traveler. Master swordsman. Fighter of injustice. Avenger of evil-doers.

Plunge into the sprawling epic tales of 16th century fantasy adventure stretching from the culture of England to the most remote African jungles. The world of Solomon Kane is one of vengeful ghosts, of bloodthirsty demons, and of dark sorceries wielded by evil men and women. Each will oppose our fearless avenger, armed with a fanatic’s faith and a warrior’s savage heart.

“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.”
–Robert E. Howard
