Nice selection so far. Can anyone think of any actual references to Halloween in Howard's work/writings?
Despite REH's Celto-/Gaelophilia, there is about zero mention of any of the "quarter days" like Halloween or May Day in any of his writings. I can't recall even one and I've read his letters multiple times. Quite odd. The Black Stone takes place on Midsummer's Eve and REH wrote one Christmas story. Ponder that: one Christmas story but no Halloween yarn.
I need to start a Howardian Holidays thread. 'Tis the season.
I'm very much with Demonic Berserkers Char-vell and Zarono. I'd suggest, myself, yes, Pigeons From Hell (can there be any question about that?) along with Dig Me No Grave and The Black Stone. I also have distinct soft spots for The Thing on the Roof and The House of Arabu. If poetry is eligible here, I nominate without hesitation The Song of a Mad Minstrel.
