Narrated by the hauntingly beautiful Kathy Bell Denton
"... a post-apocalyptic sort of fantasy world where the 'good' guys are undead necromancers and hybrid monsters, the remaining humans must make difficult choices to ensure that there's a future for any of them." -
Bob Milne
Beauty in Ruins
"Helen is one of the stranger heroes to feature in swords & sorcery. Is she delusional, mad, gifted? I was never quite sure — she is only a little girl — but I was never able to take my eyes off her. With a cast as strange as this novel has, Helen remains the focus throughout. Even when she’s off stage, the question of what she is doing always seems to rise to the fore." -

Wagner's Kane AND Farmer's Dungeon are the Sept-Oct Groupreads

The Sword & Sorcery group on Goodreads invites you to join is this Sept-Oct as we "Groupread" two topics:

(A) Philip Jose' Farmer's "The Dungeon" series, folder Link: A) Farmer's Dungeon

(B) Karl Edward Wagner's "Kane", folder link: B) Wagner's KANE

As usual, we love to foster discussion with topics that are close. So any Wagner work would work to stimulate reading, and any Philip Jose Farmer work is ok (he inspired/edited The Dungeon series, but was not an author). Also, "Sword & Soul" was a very close runner up. Expect that topic to come back in Nov-Dec.
