CFP: The Dark Man: Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies (journal)

Friday, June 6, 2003 - 12:15am
Mark Hall

THE DARK MAN is an annual scholarly journal devoted to study, discussion,
and criticism of the literary work of Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936). As a
working premise for the journal, we believe that the breadth, depth, and
significance of Howard's considerable literary achievement and his literary
influences -- both during and since his brief life -- are worthy of serious
attention and richly deserve a scholarly forum. The journal's purpose is to
provide that forum for Howardian and related studies. Arrangements have been
made for the journal to be indexed in the Modern Humanities Research
Association and Modern Language Association's bibliographic indexes.
