More About the Author

I was born in Heywood, Lancashire, and now live in the Wirral. I am a chartered civil and structural engineer, a pistol, rifle and shotgun shooter, aikido instructor/student, a loud and alarming piano player, and a really bad guitar player.

I have written thirteen epic fantasy novels and a book drawn from my thinking about aikido. The novels are best read in the right order which I have set out below as it is different from the Amazon display.

The Call of the Sword
The Fall of Fyorlund
The Waking of Orthlund
Into Narsindal

Dream Finder
The Return of the Sword

The Keep

Aikido - more than a martial art

The first four are known as the Chronicles of Hawklan. Dream Finder to Caddoran are 'stand-alone' works though they are set in the same world as the Chronicles, follow the events there and contain some of the main characters. The Return of the Sword draws them all together again.

The Keep is more recent and is a very strange book.

While all the above wanted to be written, the aikido book demanded to be written. It is philosophical in character, dealing with matters which are important not only to martial artists of any discipline but to any inquiring mind. It has been called 'The Book of Five Rings for the 21st Century'

All the books are available in Kindle versions and other e-formats via Mushroom Publishing. All except the aikido book are also available in paperback (Bladud). Make of them what you will, but if you buy them I hope you enjoy them.

Having first read this book some years ago, on re-reading it I can see why it has remained in my memory. Highly recommended

Format: Paperback
This is the third book of the series, and in my view is even better than the first two.

Fine writing, enough action to keep one satisfied, and a fair bit of character development.

I have just finished re-reading all four books and a very satisfying read they make too. The fourth book is even better. Not many series stand the test of time so well.

Format: Paperback
The third book of the Chronicles of Hawklan, Hawklan is unconscious rescued from Islomann, big parts of Vakloss destroyed, Dan Tor hurt from an arrow from Hawklan. Hawklan, Islomann and queen Sylvriss fleeing to Lord Eldrics castle. From there queen Sylvriss departs to Riddin, Islomann and unconscious Hawklan depart to Orthlundyn. The Lords start to move with an army against Vakloss... To make it short, this book is in mayor part a preparation for the final Conclusion in the next book. The discription of this preparation is definitely to long. There are mayor critics. The queen Sylvriss is too pathetic developed in this book. Big parts of the story of the Cadvanwr and Andawyr should be placed in the second book because explanations for something happening in the first book is wrong placed in the third book. The conflict between Orthlundyn army and the Alphraan is told to maximal extension. Less would have been better. All this tires the reader and has door stopper tendency. In comparison to the first two books this is definitely a step back. Too talkative and far reaching.

I am more than pleased with this purchase. I have been a fan of Robert E. Howard for over 50 years and am always happy to find works by him to include in my collection of reading material.
Solomon Kane - descendant of Conan the Barbarian 27 Sep 2014

If you don't like Conan, or reading Robert E Howard, then don't buy this book. However, if you enjoy a good action yarn and appreciate Howard's style, then you will find the dour Puritan Solomon Kane a fun read.

Of course, if you are looking for the bloody pirate from the movie, you won't find him here.

A great introduction! 10 July 2007
By Aaron Lavack - Published on
Format: Paperback
Solomon Kane is one of Howard's earlier characters. I found him to be more interesting than Conan, though I suppose that opinion might change once I read some more of his works.

This volume contains 'Skulls in the Stars, The moon of skulls and The footfalls within, though this has been incorrectly titled as 'the hills of the dead'.

Nice cover art as well.

Solomon Kane, puritan on a divine mission from god to rid the world of evil. Very engaging character, the settings and Kane's background give the stories an atmosphere of wierdness that other hack and slash tales can't achieve.
