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.
As a result of this renewed interest in Howard, REH: Two-Gun Raconteur resumed publication in 2003. Issues 5 through 4 have been published with the current schedule having The Definitive Robert E. Howard Journal appearing annually. REH: Two-Gun Raconteur is a classic Howard journal that keeps its roots intact. The journal is geared toward the reader who enjoys escaping into the fantastic worlds and characters created by Robert E. Howard.
Each issue features an outstanding line-up of obscure Robert E. Howard fiction, insightful essays, and in-depth articles by award-winning Howard scholars, plus first-rate artwork by up-and-coming young artists as well as established favorites.
So, if you are an aficionado of the works of the world’s greatest fantasy and adventure writer, you will find the spirit of Robert E. Howard lives on, bringing fire and thunder to the pages of REH: Two-Gun Raconteur.
