Howard Days is Two Weeks Away!

We are approaching crunch time as we prepare for the 2019 version of Robert E. HOWARD DAYS in Cross Plains. Here is some information and reminders to help you maximize your enjoyment.

First, if you haven't decided attending Howard Days and would like to - COME ON DOWN! There is plenty of room in Texas and the big Pavilion and yard is available for your relaxation.

There are also still seats available at the Friday night Celebration Banquet. For only $15.00 per person you can enjoy a scrumptious chicken-fried steak dinner with all the trimmings, hobnob with fellow Howard fans and partake in the Silent Auction. 100% of the proceeds from the Auction go to Project Pride and the maintenance of the REH Museum. You may still reserve a seat at the Banquet via Paypal: or send a check to Project Pride, POB 534, Cross Plains, TX 76443, by June 1st.

Speaking of the Silent Auction, there is always room for more donations to support Project Pride and the Howard Museum. REH books, magazines & pulps, comics, fanzines, artwork, posters - anything directly Howard related is most appreciated (and tax deductible!) You can bring items to the Gift Shop on Friday during Howard Days, or there's still time to ship to the address above.

We are celebrating several anniversaries this year at Howard Days!
Project Pride 30 years (there will be cake at the Hot Dog Lunch!)
Cross Plains Public Library 40 years
Howard's creation of Sword & Sorcery Fiction 90 years
Howard's great boxer Steve Costigan is 90!
Doctor Howard's purchase of the House 100 years

There will be several tables set up in the yard in front of the Pavilion for anyone to use as an informal dealer's area. We ask that you: A. Only display items DIRECTLY related to Robert E. Howard (see list above - Howard's contemporaries stuff allowed, but no personal books, etc.). And B. If you use one of these tables, please make a nice donation to the House.
These tables are first come, first served, but sharing is allowed!

The Sword & Sorcery Poetry of REH panel listed in the original schedule has been replaced with Sailor Steve Costigan is 90 and Still Fighting! Join Chris Gruber, Mark Finn, Jeff Shanks and some French Guy at 11 am on Saturday.

More info and updates as we get 'em! Looking forward to seeing y'all at The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom!
