Bibliographical database Howard Works acquired by Foundation

   Posted by: Rob Roehm    in News

In its continuing efforts to support REH scholarship, the Robert E. Howard Foundation is pleased to announce it has acquired the award-winning website Howard Works, www.howardworks.com.

REHF President Rusty Burke stated “We’re pleased to have this opportunity, and look forward to Howard Works being the first in a host of online scholarly offerings from REHF. We want researchers, scholars and fans to have easy access to the REH information they need. I have long felt that Howard Works is one of the most valuable online information sources – I have it bookmarked on my toolbar, and hardly a day goes by that I don’t refer to it at least a few times – so we are really pleased to be able to support this invaluable scholarly service.”

Howard Works has perennially been the world’s biggest and most complete online bibliography for REH and won the 2004 and 2005 Stygian Award for best REH Website. Bill Thom has graciously agreed to continue as its webmaster.

The website is an outstanding complement to Paul Herman’s REH bibliography, The Neverending Hunt, available from Wildside Press in 2008.
