BILLIE RUTH LOVING  (posthumous)

 

Fred Blosser is a longtime critic and commentator on the works of Robert E. Howard, beginning in 1970 with an essay in Glenn Lord’s The Howard Collector. For many fans, his essays in the back of Marvel’s Savage Sword of Conan were their introduction to non-fiction about Howard and his stories. He has authored numerous articles, reviews, and introductions over the years, including contributions to The Howard CollectorBarbarian ScrollThe Howard ReviewThe Dark ManThe Man from Cross PlainsTwo-Gun Bob, and Anniversary: A Tribute to Glenn Lord. Last year he released two books, Ar-I-E’ch and the Spell of Cthulhu: An Informal Guide to Howard’s Lovecraftian Fiction and Savage Scrolls: Scholarship from the Hyborian Age.

 

For over four decades Charles Hoffman has been one of the leading figures in Howard scholarship, since the publication of his seminal essay “Conan the Existentialist” in 1974 — widely regarded as the first true literary criticism of Howard’s work. With Marc Cerasini, he co-authored Robert E. Howard: Starmont Reader’s Guide and co-edited the initial two issues of Cromlech, the first scholarly journal dedicated to Howard. He has written a number of acclaimed essays on Howard’s work for The Dark Man, Crypt of Cthulhu, The Cimmerian, Skelos, and Spectrum, as well as for for the collections Two-Gun Bob: A Centennial Study of Robert E. Howard, The Barbaric Triumph, and The Robert E. Howard Reader.

 

For many years Billie Ruth Loving was the head librarian at the Cross Plains Public Library. She was one of the founding members of Project Pride and in 1986 helped welcome fans to the very first Robert E. Howard Days. With the Cross Plains Library she assisted in purchasing the Howard House, then donated it to Project Pride in order to have a museum for fans visiting Cross Plains. Over the years she served as the unofficial caretaker of the house and museum and was the primary local historian on Howard and his life.
