Solomon Kane is a 1500s man of action His description in one of this book s stories sums him up well He never sought to analyse his motives and he never wavered once his mind was made up Though he always acted on impulse he firmly believed that all his actions were governed by cold and logical reasonings He was a man born out of his time a strange blending of Puritan and Cavalier with a touch of the ancient philosopher and than a touch of the pagan though the last assertion would have shocked him unspeakably An atavist of the days of blind chivalry he was a knight errant in the sombre clothes of a fanatic A hunger in his soul drove him on and on an urge to right all wrongs protect all weaker things avenge all crimes against right and justice 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 pp 79 80He pursues his righteous course across seas and continents though most of his chronicled adventures happen in Africa He fights both mystical and material opponents with an implacable drive that overwhelms his foes The action is exciting whether he is fighting winged terrors pirates or ancient and cruel civilizationsThe stories are marred a bit by Howard s racism He describes Africa as the Dark Continent land of shadows and horror of bewitchment and sorcery into which all evil things had been banished before the growing light of the western world p 155 Kane gains a black magic weapon from a shaman which he uses all the time despite his Puritanical sensibilities It s a convenient way to give him some supernatural abilities to complement his hardened will muscles and steel both blades and pistols The stories also show prejudice against Germans and Russians which is hardly a comfort to modern readersHoward does have a gift for vivid descriptions The adventures are never boring and often strike the reader as ready material for a fun action movie series Howard is famous for the Conan the Barbarian stories which have made it to the big screen than once In the right hands these stories could be morphed into a successful franchise Righteous fury is always popularSlightly recommended
