The Puritan Avenger

Soloman Kane is a creation of Robert E. Howard, who is better known for creating Conan the Cimmerian. I especially liked the Kane stories, Howard was able to weave Old Testament imagery into the struggles of the Elizabethan age. There isn't that much actualy history here, but I like the stories all the same, you can really get the feel for the persecution the Puritans suffered that led them to America.
