“What is death but a traversing of eternities
and a crossing of cosmic oceans?”
Robert E. Howard
(January 22, 1906 — June 11, 1936)
I’ve said it before and many times over: no author has influenced me, not only as a writer but as a human being, more than Robert E. Howard.
Today marks the eightieth year since ol’ Two-Gun took his life in Cross Plains.
He was a giant and his candle burned bright but short. As for me, I am thankful for the words he left us and for the many more inspired by him…
Rest in Peace.
