...Lovecraft wasn't British...

I guess that explains it. ;)
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

Haven't come across any , I thought it _OK_, basically retelling the film with a bit more added about Meredith escaping/being recaptured.

A situation that brought much disappointment to him. :P

I can't imagine being interested in this novel that is not about any Solomon Kane that I ever heard of. <_<

I picked this up by chance at Barnes and Nobel today, in the new releases section of all places! I supose that means we're finally going to get a U.S. theatrical release soon.

Money and muscle, that's what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won't do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world won't enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it.
--Robert E. Howard to Harold Preece, ca. June 1928--

Obviously i know that but he writes in a british style...he is almost overly descriptive which tends to be a british trait!
...makes nightmares out of pretty dreams!

Does Campbell explain how 'Sorrowman' [SK-x] gets the amazing strength to pull himself off the cross, please?
Does his god help him?

[ or did he leave that scene out of the book? ]

"So I took to a life of adventure and daring
leaving most warriors drooling and staring.
After I danced with my exotic flesh baring
I would vanish into the new Sunrise glaring."
