Eberron Campaign Setting by Keith Baker
Eberron Campaign Setting

Lachlann, Powells.com, December 16, 2006

This is one of the best campaign settings for D&D, it's right up there with Darksun. I really enjoy the thoroughness of the world that Baker has created. I hope to see more added all the time.

The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian (Conan of Cimmeria, Book 1) by Robert E. Howard
The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian (Conan of Cimmeria, Book 1)

Lachlann, Powells.com, April 1, 2006

Robert E. Howard is the Father of 'Sword & Sorcery' and with out a doubt, of the best fantasy writers in the 20th century. The detail and ferocious, unrelenting passion for his characters and the worlds in which they live, make them come alive. Mr. Howard's writing style is very unique and exciting. When reading his books, I become completely absorbed into them. I lose track of time and where I am. From Bran Mak Morn, to Conan and Solomon Kane, there is no shortage of great fiction (until you finish all of his books!).

Conan is, in a word, amazing. A Barbarian with a bloodlust. My favourite of the Conan stories, are easily 'Tower of the Elephant' and 'The Frost Giant's Daughter'. The latter being of a very primal nature. It is short, to the point and needless to say, very good. I think it really captures the spirit of Conan the best. Simply put, if you have not read this you are only depriving yourself of a fantastic read. Do not accept cheap clones of Conan stories! No other author has never been able to duplicate what Rober E. Howard originally did, never settle for anything less!

The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane by Robert E Howard
The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane

Lachlann, Powells.com, April 1, 2006

Robert E. Howard is the Father of 'Sword & Sorcery' and with out a doubt, of the best fantasy writers in the 20th century. The detail and ferocious, unrelenting passion for his characters and the worlds in which they live, make them come alive. Mr. Howard's writing style is very unique and exciting. When reading his books, I become completely absorbed into them. I lose track of time and where I am. From Bran Mak Morn, to Conan and Solomon Kane, there is no shortage of great fiction (until you finish all of his books!).

Solomon Kane is a very good example of the do-gooding archetype, godly in stature and his sense of Justice and Chivalry. His magnetic pull to evil, and his desire to vanquish every last trace of it even in the face of death, is inspiring. I don't like giving out spoilers, so you must read the book yourselves. I can certainly say that if you like Robert E. Howard's other books, you will enjoy this one... And if you have not read his other books, well you should be ashamed, and start reading them!
