Robert E. Howard Days

Cross Plains Texas celebrates its native son, Robert E. Howard, with two days of events in the 2nd weekend of June. Hey, that starts today! The cimmerian blog has some nice shots of the town and here’s a list of events.

He gave us so many wonderful characters and stories in such a short time.

I couldn't find a good video about Howard so here's Renee Zellweger as Novalyne Price and Vincent D'Onofrio as Robert E. Howard kissing in the movie "The Whole Wide World"

That's actually a pretty neat website. And, remarkably, a reason to visit Texas.

Before I clicked on the 'list of events' link, I had visions of 'June 10, 2:15pm, slave pit fights' or 'June 9, Get Your Soul Sucked Out By Thoth Amon 9am - noon (by reservation only).

Arkonbey – If I was going to Texas and somewhat near cross plains, I’d sure stop by.

That would be so cool but then I’d worry that those Ren Fair folks might show up. ☺
