This booklet was for sale at the 100th birthday celebration for Robert E. Howard held at The Torch in Fort Worth, Texas on January 21, 2006. All profits from the sale of the booklet and the $5 admission fee for the event went to the City of Cross Plains Fire Relief Fund. The event was originally scheduled to be held at the Black Dog Tavern, but was moved at the last minute. It was actually held at The Torch, a nearby tavern in Fort Worth, TX. An open mic was available at the event and various people read excerpts from the vast range of REH works. Poems were read aloud by various Howard fans, as were some parts of Howard stories, about 40 readings in all. Most copies of this publication were sold at that meeting.
