I have been looking for these books for such a long time! Can’t believe I finally found some copies, and they are in good shape. In my quest to find awesome vintage Sword and Sorcery paperbacks I look everywhere I can locally. I know I can find some online but they are usually overpriced. I like to see the books in person and I hate the wait for them to ship. But I have never been able to find Kane books at my local haunts. I broke down and bought these two online. I have been following this Facebook page for a little while now and gave them a go. Brian’s and No Bull, Just Books were great to work with, fair prices, and it didn’t take forever to get my books. They have great Vintage paperbacks, you should go check them out.
Brian’s and No Bull, Just Books
These Kane books are fantastic, some of the best Sword and Sorcery ever. If you get the chance give them a read you won’t be disappointed. Big fan of Karl Edward Wagner!
Bloodstone by Karl Edward Wagner (1975) Cover art by Frank Frazetta
In the dark swamp, where toadmen croak and cower, slumbers a secret relic of the days when creatures from the stars ruled the earth. In the booty captured in a savage raid, Kane discovers a ring, a bloodstone which is key to the power that lies buried, inactive but not dead, within the forest. The Kane series of novels and stories by Karl Edward Wagner have been recognized as dark classics of the sword and sorcery genre.
