World Fantasy Award nominee 1979.
KANE – The Mystic Swordsman ranges Earth and Time to confront the demons of darkness.
Where once the mighty Kane has passed, no one who lives forgets. Now, down the trails of past battles, Kane travels again. To the ruins of a devastated city peopled only by half-men and the waif they call their queen. To the half-burnt tavern where a woman Kane wronged long ago holds his child in keeping for the Devil. To the cave kingdom of the giants where glory and its aftermath await discovery. To the house of death itself where Kane retrieves a woman to love.
The past, the future, the present – all are one for Kane as he travels through the ceturies, "an intriguing hero – part savage, part savant – with a dash of Satanic seasoning." –John Jakes
