In the city of the living dead, in a jungle empire ruled by a vampire queen, in a land where manlike things with the wings of huge bats prey on humans, Kane's indomintable will and limitless courage carry him into battle against inconceivable horrors. Driven by the irresistable impulses he himself does not understand, fated never to call any land home, Soloman Kane continues on his endless quest, and cannot be swerved from it, even if it leads to the gates of Hell itself...
About the Author
Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American author who wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery subgenre. Howard was born and raised in Texas. He spent most of his life in the town of Cross Plains, with some time spent in nearby Brownwood. A bookish and intellectual child, he was also a fan of boxing and spent some time in his late teens bodybuilding, eventually taking up amateur boxing. From the age of nine he dreamed of becoming a writer of adventure fiction but did not have real success until he was 23. Thereafter, until his death by suicide at age 30, Howard's writings were published in a wide selection of magazines, journals, and newspapers, and he became proficient in several subgenres. His greatest success occurred after his death.
