This collection was envisioned as a catch-all: Tevis Clyde Smith for the Robert E. Howard fan and scholar. It contains all of the known pieces that Smith wrote about Howard, contributed to Howard fan publications, or co-authored with Howard. It also contains many of the pieces Smith wrote while Howard was still alive: items from The Tattler, The Junto, and other publications, as well as the few, never-before published letters from Smith to Howard.
This volume explores the remnants of Howard’s home-away-from-home with photos — both modern and period — as well as pictures and scans of pertinent documents: college catalogues, yearbooks, report cards, maps and more. Every detail of Howard’s life in Brownwood is explored, from his trips to Stone’s Ranch to his relationships with his Brownwood friends. Also included are letters written to Howard from his mother, a section on Novalyne Price, and items from the Cross Plains Review.
