ONE WHO WALKED ALONE - ROBERT E. HOWARD: THE FINAL YEARS by Novalyne Price Ellis. Hampton Falls, NH; Donald M. Grant. Fourth hardcover printing. For the first time, information is available that provides a close observance of Robert E. Howard during his final years.
Novalyne Price, the one girl Robert E. Howard dated, kept journals, diaries, and wrote short story-like essays of the conversations she had with Howard and other members of the Cross Plains community.
After Howard killed himself on June 11, 1936 she held onto the old journals, thinking that someday she would write about him. One Who Walked Alone is the culmination of that dream.
Here is an astounding and remarkable link with the past! Novalyne Price Ellis has written of Robert E. Howard as she knew him.
This is not a second hand account.
With photographs from Mrs. Ellis's collection.
This is a new fourth printing of an eagerly sought after book which was made into a critically acclaimed film by director Dan Ireland from a screenplay by Michael Scott Myers who was one of Mrs. Ellis's English students.
Fine in fine dj.
