About Kevin Lane

The majority of Kevin's work falls into the Sword & Sorcery genre. His fantasy influences include Robert E. Howard (Conan) and H.P. Lovecraft (Cthulhu). He is a fan of the '20s and '30s Pulp Fiction era. He rarely reads modern fiction. (Modern being anything written after 1975).

Kevin shuns multi-book series. (Both in reading and writing.) He feels a complete story should fit between the covers.

Typically Kevin's tales contain a small number of main characters. This allows readers to get acquainted, to view the protagonists as close friends. How these characters face and overcome their challenges is the focus of his work, as opposed to sweeping epic battles that decide the rise and fall of nations.

The fantastic nature of Kevin's imaginary worlds is somewhat secondary. For example, Kevin may never explain how a magic system works. It just does. What is important to the plot is why the characters employ the magic.

Although his works can be read for pure 'escapism', Kevin places enough material just beneath the surface for those readers who like to dig a little deeper, to ponder a little longer.


Review by: Derwent Press on Sep. 10, 2012 :
This was a great read: a unqiue story and point of view character. You cannot predict how this is going to end. Very atmospheric and gothic.

Very odd and also very intriguing. I am quite fond of mystical narrative writing styles, and found this story sweetly satisfying. The story itself is wonderful to read just for the sheer experience of it, but can also be enjoyed at a deeper, more thoughtful level.

Gotta love a story that doesn't feel it has to have a happily-ever-after. Not depressing, but realistic. Great descriptions and a twisty plot.
