Good Introduction to Solomon Kane

(4 stars)

This is a good Solomon Kane story. Howard's Kane was never as interesting a character as Conan, but his tales allowed Howard to tap into a much darker world. The reading was good. I prefer readings without the overblown voices - especially the accents. However, in a campy pulp tale like this they seemed to fit with the spirit. Like an old black and white movie with all the international parts played by white actors in greasepaint. I recommend this tale. It's a short listen with some interesting settings and a reader who obviously loves what he is doing.

This is a story full of slashing swords and purple prose. Howard is one of the better pulp fiction magazine writers and his stories crackle with action. This story, and those like it, are one of my favorite literary guilty pleasures. For full review and others, visit http://www.freelistens.blogspot.com
