REH: Two-Gun Raconteur #4

The third issue of REH: Two-Gun Raconteur, from 1976. Contains ‘Conan vs. Conantics’ by Don Herron and ‘The Devil’s Joker’ by Howard. Also several articles and an art portfolio by Gene Day.

In the mid-1970s, when the Robert E. Howard Boom was just beginning, REH: Two-Gun Raconteur was on the cutting edge of Howard Fandom. During those heady days there was a continuous stream of hardback books, paperbacks, magazines, comics, chapbooks, fanzines, art portfolios and one-shot publications all devoted to the gifted author and poet from Cross Plains, Texas. When the Boom eventually faded out in the late eighties, the fans and admirers of Robert E. Howard still carried the torch, waiting for a time when Howard would return and that time has come. While not on as grand a scale as the earlier boom, it is nonetheless a great time to be a Howard fan.
