Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that gives a great insight into Robert E. Howard's mind and his writings! The book is dedicated to the Howardian Triumvirate, Rusty Burke, Glenn Lord, and Patrice Louinet - and to the memory of David Gemmell 1948-2006.

There are approximately 16 contributors of this book including Glenn Lord who first became a REH fan in 1951 when he read Skull Face & Others. Lord has been an active figure in REH's legacy. We fans of REH owe Glenn Lord, Paul Herman, Mark Finn and many others including all contributors of this book a big thank you for all they've done to keep REH's legacy alive. The last of his writings are now in a book titled - The Last of The Trunk; Please see REHfoundation.

One of my favorite chapters is A Behavior Perspective by Charles Gramlich, Ph.D. who is a professor of psychology at a small university in New Orleans and a long time member of REHupa and assistant editor of The Dark Man: The Journal of REH Studies. In Two-Gun Bob On page 99 he says QUOTE - REH was a pretty normal fellow and states that the problem with playing amateur psychologist is that it's very easy and tempting to look at a single incident in people's lives and make a judgement of their mental state. But what if someone did that to you? What if someone saw you only once in your life, and it was when you were at your worst, at the very moment when you were snapping at your friends, or so sad that you felt like "just giving up"? Or what if they saw you when you were intoxicated and acting silly, but they didn't know you'd been drinking? Would that be a fair way to judge you?
