Re: Robert E. Howard

Yes. I've already ploughed through one story and half of another (Beyond the Black River). I'm loving it so far. Very evocative and quick-moving writing. I had been meaning to check him out for aggggges. But never got around to it until now.

Re: Robert E. Howard

In 2007, Norris Chambers was interviewed in Howard's home. Norris was perhaps the last living person who knew Robert personally. He passed away a few years later.

Thanks, Ghul. One forgets how very *Texan* he was.

In ~1974, when D&D came out, Pulsipher was the editor of Supernova, the SF&F zine of the International Federation of Wargamers  (yes, I'm reading Playing at the World).

Re: Robert E. Howard

Perhaps my second favorite Howard character. Great picture, Scaly. Learn 'em something early! ;)
