Happy Birthday, You Barbarian!

It’s the birthday of the man who brought us Conan the Barbarian, science fiction author Robert E. Howard, who was born in Peaster, Texas on this day in 1906. If you’re from Texas, or just passing through, you can find out more about him at the Crossplains Robert E. Howard Museum. If you can’t make that, you can read more about him at the Wikipedia.


  1. Raise a toast to ol’ Two-Gun’s 101st . I’ll be breaking open a can of Guinness and my DR Kull book later .

  2. Myabe next year I won’t be quite so pressed for time and detail some of his other writings.
    Glad a fan found the links, though.
