Patrice Louinet promised a little surprise for the Photographic Record of REH on the Call for More REH Photos....

Reveal time - and it's a doozy!

REH scholar and all around cool guy Patrice Louinet has provided the Official REH Forums with High Definition (HD) scans of all known REH photos! That's right! The difference b/w HD and the older scans is nothing short of amazing! Patrice is sending the HD scans in order - so far we have five HD scans (the first 5 photos of the Photographic Album.)

Please join me in thanking Patrice for his hard work and for sharing these precious HD scans of our favorite author!

Thank you Patrice - we all owe ya! B)

Checkout the HD scans!

There's a photo 3rd up from the bottom, with the caption "Robert E. Howard (left) & Billy the Kid Sign."

Isn't that REH on the right, with his cap on?

I've added four other HD scans provided by Patrice Louinet.

REH with Billy the Kid Sign, Robert E. Howard-arms folded in front of window, Robert E. Howard at Fort McKavett 1933 and REH under the palm tree. Here's the thread: http://www.conan.com...?showtopic=6112

These are awesome. A friend sent me a postcard of Robert E. Howard and Truett Vinson - Beachcombers Argument from The Howard Museum which I plan on framing. I had no idea there were so many pictures. It looks to me that he was acting out the battles that would appear in his yarns .

Join me in The Mortuary or at Dreadful Tales where I review horror literature.
