Sort order. Jan 28, Russell rated it really liked it. REH is best known for his Conan stories, but the man was a pulp writing machine. This collection covers his wide range of stories from the Puritan Kane, El Borak, to his historical fiction set in the time of the Crusades. These are tales of action and adventure, of doughty men hacking their way through hordes of enemies, all written in Howard's vigorous style.
Yes, the heroes are all similar: hard men of physical prowess doing nigh-impossible things against near-overwhelming odds. And they are a REH is best known for his Conan stories, but the man was a pulp writing machine. And they are awesome stories.

So technically, yes, but it's a legal muddle? What about this Zorro book? Zorro Did it have trouble? Just because a story is in the public domain, it doesn't mean that the character is.
I was going to work on a piece that recast Fu Manchu as a hero, but discovered that the Rohmer estate still controls the character evne though the first story is in the public domain. They will continue to until something like based on Rohmer's death date of rather than the date of first story in This is the reason the character is never called by that name in LXG , Anno Dracula, and other derivative works.
As I recall, the question was further muddied because the character was created under English copyright law and also predated modern copyright legislation. Given this, it's a good bet both characters you mention probably have some sort of protection.
As advice, I'd recommend steering clear of direct references to such sources anyways. Since LXG, people have been mining the public domain pretty thoroughly and it might be very hard to come up with an original take on a character.ypihuxos.tk
Solomon Kane, Puritan Avenger - Redeemed Reader
No matter how obscure you think it is, someone's probably beat you to it. I think you'd be better off creating a unique character and set them in a world that is in your mind the same as the character you wish to homage. Perhaps a hard edged French mercenary leverages "that rumor about the man with the Z up North" in Old Mexico by making a few very public acts of chivalry to conceal his own agenda of treasure hunting cue mystical Aztec tombs and unseen horrors therein. Or a Prussian nobleman who has Kane-esque adventures against creatures and runs into an unnamed Puritan in the depths of Africa.
Naturally, the strutting peacock finds him dull and dreary. By keeping the protected characters unnamed and keeping their appearances to cameos, you're doing an homage within your own work instead of stealing. Also, if the legal issues scare off an editor, it becomes an easy thing to drop the cameo. After all, your work should be able to stand alone without the cameo anyways, right?
