It’s time to (metaphorically) blaze our pistolas and brandish our Bowies – Robert E. Howard Days is this week in Cross Plains, Texas! If you’re a returning attendee, you know what a blast it is. If you’ve never been, when you do come on down you’ll know why there are so many returning attendees!
The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom officially starts on Friday the 7th, runs through Saturday the 8th and is chock full of All Things Howard! The Robert E. Howard Museum is open to all from 9 to 4 each day; buy REH items in the Gift Shop; purchase Howard books directly from the REH Foundation Press; you can listen to our GOH Tim Truman talk about his involvement with Ol’ Two-Gun Bob Howard; you can take a Bus Tour of Cross Plains and the surrounding countryside; a total of seven panels will be presented (one at the Ice House where REH mixed it up!); we have a REH Swap Meet at the Pavilion; there’s a Celebration Banquet and a way-cool Silent Auction; the Cross Plains Post Office will stamp your mail with a Howard Days cancellation postmark; you can enjoy some real Texas vittles at the Caddo Peak Ranch Barbeque,; read or listen to REH Porchlight Poetry; view original Howard typescripts and a great collection at the Cross Plains Library – whew, it’s one of those exhausting weekends that makes you glad to be a fan of Robert E. Howard!
And the best part about all these activities: you will be doing it among old and new friends who have gathered in Fellowship to support the Legacy of a true American (and Texas!) original – Robert E. Howard.
See you there!
