Drafted-sm

Legacy Circle members should have received their summer surprise: Drafted: Unsent Letters to H. P. Lovecraft. This 20-page item collects all of the known draft pages for Robert E. Howard’s letters to the gent from Providence, all presented in facsimile, and most never seen before. In these unsent pages Howard makes one of his rare mentions of Adolph Hitler and begins honing his side of the perennial “Barbarism Vs. Civilization” debate. A list of contents follows:

Introduction by Rob Roehm
Draft: Ca. July 1, 1930 (3 pages)
Draft: Ca. August 1930 (2 pages)
Draft: Ca. July 1933 (8 pages)
Draft: Ca. January 1935 (1 paragraph)
Undated Address Lists (2 lists)
Draft: May 11, 1936 (1 page)

This collection is free to the 2013 Legacy Circle members, and not available to the general public. Furthermore, at the end of the year, it will no longer be available at all. And this is just one of the perks our members receive during the year. Legacy Circle members get items like Drafted, our quarterly Newsletter, a discount on books, a membership pin, invitations to special events, etc.  Other levels of membership receive some of these bonuses, but not our special publications; those are reserved for the Legacy Circle.

Membership is easy, and tax-deductible. To join the Legacy Circle, send $100 to paypal@rehfoundation.org, or a check to The REH Foundation Press, PO Box 2641, Sugar Land, TX, 77478-2641. Your membership will be valid for one full year from the date you sign up. Supporting members and Friends of REH  can upgrade their membership by sending $80 or $30 to paypal@rehfoundation.org, or by sending a check to The REH Foundation Press, PO Box 2641, Sugar Land, TX, 77478-2641.

Fists of Iron Steps Into the Ring

   Posted by: Rob Roehm

Round1-small

The first volume of the Collected Boxing Fiction of Robert E. Howard is shipping as I type; many have already received their copy. The tentative schedule for the remaining volumes is as follows: Vol. 2, Sept.-Oct.; Vol. 3, Nov.-Dec.; Vol. 4, early 2014. This all depends on the availability of cover art, contracts, and the printer’s schedule.

We hope to announce a volume of straight and weird Western tales soon, which, again tentatively, should ship in August or September. Stay tuned for updates.

Shamefaced Correction

   Posted by: Rob Roehm

Well, it was bound to happen eventually. In the rush to get Back to School published, I accidentally loaded the wrong PDF to Lulu. As a result, four REH Foundation members and 12 non-members will be or have received a copy with three pages and a few notes missing. The first missing page is the third part of “Latin Examination” April 15, 1921. This is page 120 in the final document.  This insertion moved all pages numbers from the previous 120 through 215 up one. In the old PDF, pages 215 and 216 were identical; in the correct PDF, one of those pages has been removed, so the page numbering is the same after 216. The missing page is provided below:

0117a Latin

 

 

 

 

 

The other two missing pages are “Stray Pages” of math scratch work and appear on the new PDF at pages 440 and 441. This moves the start of “Literature Text Book” to 442. These missing pages are below. I’ll be contacting the Foundation members who will be receiving the wrong book shortly. For the 12 people who ordered direct from Lulu, if they are interested in receiving the revised edition, send an email to info@rehfoundation.org. We’ll ask for you to send us the old book, and then we’ll get the new one to you.
