Happy Birthday Robert E. Howard

Today we say Happy Birthday to the creator of the legendary Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936). He was the creator of sword and sorcery fantasy and because of this his material has been fodder for some of the greatest works of art on the planet. People like Frank Frazetta, Barry Windsor Smith, and Cary Nord have all brought his works to vivid life. He may not have been on this Earth for long, but his brilliant creations will live on for centuries.
