Howard Days will be here SOON!

In a little over two weeks, fans of Robert E. Howard will finally be able to gather again at the REH Museum in Cross Plains, Texas! While we will miss some of our overseas amigos, plans are in place for another great Howard Days on June 11th & 12th..

Please peruse the scheduled activities on this site, knowing that Project Pride is waiting to welcome you with all the fun and fellowship that can be had at Howard Days!

Roy Thomas is our Guest of Honor, as we focus on 50...uh, 51 Years of REH in Comics. Roy is the main man when it comes to bringing Conan into Pop Culture and he'll be there to meet and greets his many fans!

But Howard Days is mostly about Howard Fellowship, as fans gather to celebrate the great legacy of Ol' Two-Gun Bob Howard. For all the activities we have planned for Howard Days, the best one is unplanned - the comradery and friendship shared by HD attendees. Hope you can come and hang out with us!

The special postal cancellation stamp is shown above, designed by Marvel artist Becky Cloonan. This is an exclusive souvenir available to HD attendees, only Friday only at the Cross Plains Post Office. So, the price of a stamp gets you an exclusive REH collectible!

Donations are always welcomed to support the REH Museum, but not just money-wise. The Silent Auction, held in conjunction with the Friday Celebration Banquet, is the biggest fundraiser that Project Pride does all year. 100% of the proceeds from this auction goes to the care and maintenance of the REH Museum. So, if you have extra or unused Howard items in your collection (books, paperbacks, magazines, fanzines, artwork & prints or any Howard-related items), please think about sending them to the Silent Auction. (Project Pride, POB 534, Cross Plains, TX 76443). C'mon, we all have dupes or extras in our collections - make a Howard fan happy by donating them today!

And speaking of the Celebration Banquet, reservations are still available, but going fast. These last few weeks will show a scramble to get a seat, so don't delay! A mere 15 bucks gets you a great dinner of authentic Texas grub, a chance to bid on rare collectibles - and you get to hear Roy Thomas speak! That's the deal of the year. You can use the address above or PayPal to

And if that's not enough, be sure to be at the Howard Museum at 12:45 p.m. on Friday for a special surprise presentation. It involves something historical so you won't want to miss it!

Hope to see y'all in a couple of weeks. It's going to be so nice to get the family back together for our yearly reunion! Y'all come!
