Happy Birthday Robert E. Howard!

Today is Robert E. Howard's birthday. This evening I'll read some of his fiction as I always do on this occasion. Next to Tarzan and Sherlock Holmes, REH's creation Conan the Cimmerian is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time, and I've spent uncounted hours in his company. As most of you know, I'm a teetotaler, but I'll raise a mug of whatever I'm drinking to the shade of Mr. Howard and give my favorite toast.

Here's to us and them like us,
Damn few, and they're... probably dead. 

To Two-Gun Bob.
