Yesterday, January 22nd marked Robert E. Howard's birthday and I feel a little bad for mentioning this a day late, but I'm a busy guy. Anyway, a very heart-felt Happy Birthday to the great pulp writer and creator of my favorite hero, Conan the Barbarian! Just think, he'd be 103 years old today if he hadn't committed suicide that fateful day in 1936. A great writer and an even greater loss. I can't help but wonder what other great stories he would have written about Conan, Kull, Cormac and Solomon Kane if he had lived long enough to further his career. I wonder how different Conan would be now? Just something to think about.
