    1. I love the Kane books by Karl Edward Wagner, but I was tempted to rate this final volume even lower : three of the best novellas already published in the previous volumes are gathered here with two shortish stories, so 80 % of the collection is recycled material and it just doesn't feel right to call this the sixth book of Kane. It's more like one of those "Best of " albums of popstars that pick of few hits and then put in a couple of new songs that didn't make it on the original release so they [...]


    2. This is an excellent collection of Kane stories & hard to come by. Two of the stories, "MISERICORDE" & "THE OTHER ONE" were new to me. They're not included in any other collection that I know of & I have most of Wagner's booksFLECTIONS FOR THE WINTER OF MY SOUL - Also the first story in Death Angel's Shadow. This happens right after Dark Crusade. Kane is pursued into a snow bound castle where a werewolf stalks the inhabitants. Just who the wolf is & who will survive is up for gra [...]


    3. Am I rating this too harshly? Assigning a GoodReads rating to this book has made me question again just what I should be basing my judgement on. Superficially, this is a non-question. The pop-up GoodReads guidelines when you hover over those stars for the most part deal with emotional engagement ('did not like it', 'liked it', 'really liked it'). That should make rating things pretty easy. My difficulty here is in judging whether I use those stars to reflect my feelings about the stories, the pr [...]


    4. It's rare that we get exactly what we want. Or, at least, for me it is! The times when stories exceed my expectations are few, but here we have Kane, the Mystic Swordsman, whose few tales in this collection I devoured like candy. And it's the best heroic fantasy-type-candy that I have encountered. Everything feels "just right" here. The stories are dark and gruesome, yet somehow fun and adventurous at the same time. Kane is a unique superhuman who knows his world very well, and it's great watchi [...]


    5. Well then. I guess that's about it. I've read all the Kane stories. Loved every bit of them. I'm so sad there's no more. Kane is the best. Much better than Wagner's horror fiction. I've read all of Wagner's Kane and all of his horror fiction but there still is a bit more to finish up with. So I'll head in that direction and I'll no doubt start re-reading the Kane books again. Darkness Weaves is calling my name. Fantasy just doesn't get any better than Wagner's Kane. It's pretty much perfect.


    6. This is old-school swords and sorcery in all the best ways. It has that classic feel: dark, supernatural, violent and creepy, like an old castle ruin. This is a collection of stories about Kane, a fabulous character, larger than life, but also enigmatic and not always predictable. The writing style is rich and interesting. These stories are well told, full of twists and turns. I'm looking forward to reading the books.

    8. Classic Kane. Solid collection of short novellas about Kane. Several are especially gripping. I enjoyed it very much. Again, the prose are dense enough to invite skimming, but resist it. This is very good writing.


    9. A very nice edition of some of the Kane stories by Wagner. The Kane tales are definitely worth seeking out in whatever version you can find them in.


    10. Fun sword and sorceryDark but fun tales of sword and sorcery. Derivative of Robert Howard's Conan, but with its own unique wit and solid writing.


    11. This was my first foray into the Kane stories so I went with a smaller selection. I get the feeling the novel length tales tackle more interesting subject matter but also have to realize that within the specifically defined categories of this collection it was the shorter, rather than the longer tales which struck me. Particularly 'Misericorde'and even the slight 'The Other One' where to me the big hits rather than the somewhat meandering 'Raven's Eire' or the largely (I found) boring 'Reflectio [...]
