A Must Read: Chris' Report on The Robert E. Howard Museum

Pulp fans: you simply MUST go over to Chris La Tray's blog Stumbling the Walk and check out his report on touring the Robert E. Howard Museum in Cross Plains, Texas.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Robert E. Howard, he is considered to be one of the great pulp fiction writers, a founding father of the fantasy genre, and the creator of Conan the Barbarian. His work was a staple in the legendary WEIRD TALES magazine.

Chris has written an incredible report with plenty of photos. Anyone who has any interest in Howard or in pulps in general should read this post. No excuses.

Thanks for the headsup Laurie. Thirty years or so ago I read everything I could find that REH wrote. His work was most likely the main reason why I began collecting Weird Tales.
