On the heels of popping in the tidbit from the Kansas City Star, Scott Connors turns up another same-day report on Robert E. Howard shooting himself (!!!).
“I swear to Gawd,” Scott maintains, “that I am not trying to compete with Brian, but I keep turning over rocks and lo! — there is another news clipping about REH. This one is quite long and detailed, and may be the Ur-notice.”
Brian Leno kicked off this rush to find the same-day news coverage of Howard shooting himself but holding onto life, but I don’t think he’ll mind all the work Scott is tossing at the subject. Brian enjoys each new find as much as anyone.
