These are the adventures of an assassin, described in the third story: "He is accompanied by a young boy, some three years in age. Whether it is his own son, or they are together for some other reason, none can tell. Indeed, the man's age, his country of origin, all are cloaked in mystery. What is known, my Lord, is his deadly skill. No one he has been hired to kill has ever escaped alive, and they say he leaves no trace of evidence behind… Those who hire him must reveal their secrets before he will accept the job. Yet though he could blackmail them, there is no evidence that any have tried to kill him once he has finished his work. In short, my Lord, his skill is so great that they dare not try."
Lone Wolf is later revealed to be Ogami Itto, and has embarked on his bloody path intending to avenge his clan, suppressed by the
Shogun, having refused to enact the penalty of seppuku, or ritual suicide. Daigoro is indeed his son.
The work was begun in 1970, the stories serialized in Manga Action magazine under the title Kozure Okami "eventually spinning off a television series, six motion pictures, and even theme song records."
The stories have been collected and published worldwide, winning numerous awards.

How do series work?
To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.
Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.
Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."
What isn't a series?
Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).
Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
