Speaking of REH Days, as of this post it is exactly 14 days until fans and scholars gather in Cross Plain, TX, the home of Robert E. Howard, to discuss his work, carry on, have fun, read some poetry, drink a few beers, and just hang out. If you have never attended a Howard Days then by all means make every attempt to attend. I promise you, it will be well worth your time.

I hope to see all of you there this year!

This was recently Announced at the REH Days Website & Facebook Page . . .


While the two-day schedule has remained pretty much the same, we do have one exciting change to mention. On Saturday afternoon the 2:30 "What's Up with REH?" panel has been scratched so that we may bring you an Interview with Brad and Jeff Howard, great grandsons of Dr. Howard's brother, David Terrell Howard! Well known Howard scholar and detective Patrice Louinet will be talking with Jeff and Brad about their fascinating family history. More surprises will ensue from this panel, so be sure to be there.

Of course, there will be other special neat things happening this year at Howard Days - someone unexpected always shows up! For so many of us, Howard Days is a great place to re-establish old friendships and make many new ones. There's plenty of room in Texas, so if you're still on the fence, come to Cross Plains and see why Howard Days is The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom!

Also, the guests for this year have already been announced on the various Facebook pages and at the Robert E. Howard Days website:

Mark Schultz
MARK SCHULTZ is well-known as the illustrator for the first Wandering Star pure REH text Conan edition, The Coming of Conan. His paintings, full-page drawings, chapter headings and spot illustrations fill this volume with a clean, energetic and stylistic imagery. Other Howard work that Mark has done includes the covers to Worms of the Earth (Cross Plains Comics), The Colossal Conan (Dark Horse Comics) and the Adventures in Science Fantasy volume for the REHF Press. HE will also be painting a cover for the upcoming Conan role-playing game from Modiphius. One of Mark’s designs is used on the REH Museum t-shirt. And, as it turns out, his very first professional comics work was inking the pencils of Val Semeik’s Kull story in the Savage Sword of Conan #132. Mark will also be doing the artwork for the special souvenir postal cancellation stamp for Howard Days this year.

If you intend to go this year, be sure and book your hotel asap, there are not that many hotel rooms left in the area. I hope to see you all there. Cheers!
