Mark Finn this year’s guest at Robert E. Howard Days

Posted by Rob Roehm in Events, News   

Project Pride and The Robert E. Howard Foundation are pleased to announce that this year’s guest for Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains will be Mark Finn.

Finn is the author of Blood & Thunder: The Life and Art of Robert E. Howard (Monkeybrain Books, 2006), the 2007 Cimmerian Award winner for Book by a Single Author, which was also nominated for a World Fantasy Award and was a finalist for the Locus Award for Best Non-Fiction.

Finn has written about REH for The Dark Man, The Cimmerian, and Dark Horse Comics, among others, and his “Fists of Robert E. Howard” in The Barbaric Triumph won the 2005 Cimmerian Award for Best Essay. He also writes regularly for The Cimmerian Blog. As Creative Director for The Violet Crown Radio Players, Mark has adapted several of Howard’s Steve Costigan stories for performance. He has been one of the most instrumental voices in bringing Howard’s boxing fiction greater exposure and critical attention, and he is a lively and entertaining speaker and raconteur.

We are delighted to have Mark join us the weekend of June 13-14, 2008, as we celebrate Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains.
