The cover story is great. Creepy.
In olden times years ago, when you put a man in prison behind the bars in a jailhouse, if you had fifteen or twenty-five or thirty dollars you could save him from the gallows pole 'cause they gonna hang him if you don't bring up a little money. Everybody would come to the jailhouse and boy would ran upside the jail; he was married, too. As for who brang him something, lot of comfort, here comes his mother.
Well, it's time for Robert E. Howard Days 2012 and as it's becoming a bit of tradition, I'll be posting an ongoing trip report here. Some of you know I'm in the middle of a family vacation in Maine right now, but I'll be taking a few days off to fly down to Texas first thing in the morning. This year I'll be a participant as well as an attendee as I'm supposed to be on a panel Saturday---that may have changed though as I haven't heard anything in a while. There is also a rumor that I'm going to be refereeing a boxing match Friday night between Howard biographer and comic book writer Mark Finn and his opponent Chris Gruber, the editor of several volumes of Howard's boxing stories. The fight will take place at the old ice house in Cross Plains where Two Gun Bob himself used to box and drink beer with the roughnecks back in the day. Stay tuned!
