Now I’m almost expecting another news clipping each and every day about Robert E. Howard shooting himself, and as today breaks Scott Connors does not disappoint:
“Would you believe I found another?” Scott asks. “This time it was in the Kansas City Star, and the text is a bit different.
“I have to wonder how much more is out there. A lot of small town newspapers haven’t been digitalized, but as genealogy becomes more and more popular the more resources we have access to documents just how much of a contemporary footprint Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, H. P. Lovecraft, Henry S. Whitehead — and even Robert Barbour Johnson — had out there.”
Yeah, I guess the search is on.
