Robert E. Howard

“Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.”

The Feast is over, and the lamps expire.”  – Howard

Today, January 22, marks Robert Howards 111th birthday. Make sure to take a long swig of your favorite beverage in honor of the father of Conan. Sword and Sorcery is the punk rock of the fantasy world and Howard was its Joe Strummer.
