Chacal #2 contains ‘Daughter of Evil’ and ‘Palace of Bast’, two poems by Howard. Chacal was a US slick-format small-press Magazine. 2 issues was published (Winter 1976, Spring 1977) . The title is French for jackal.Among the first quality Small-Press magazines, Chacal grew from REH: Lone Star Fictioneer, a fanzine devoted to Robert E Howard. The focus remained mostly on Sword and Sorcery, with stories by David C Smith and Karl Edward Wagner.
The second issue of REH: Two-Gun Raconteur, from 1976. Contains several articles and a letter from Howard to Clark Ashton Smith, part two of the article about an astrological look at Howard.
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.
