This has 3 stories about Kane, Wagner's dark version of Conan. Kane strangled his brother on the alter of the mad god that created man. The god cursed him to live until the violence he brought to the race killed him. Kane is very tough, mean & intelligent, so keeps living. A great read for anyone who likes 'Sword & Sorcery'. ( )

It takes a giant to encompass all these qualities;
And we'll see no more of giants.

Book description
Where once the mighty Kane has passed, no one who lives forgets. Now, down the trials 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 awaits 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 centuries.
