Transcript Respectfully Dedicated to Tom Reamy Editorial: A little over two years ago, when Mike Templin first approached me with the idea of holding a World Fantasy Convention in Texas, I have to admit I was somewhat dubious about the idea. By the date of the second convention in New York, though, he had put our tentative "bidding package together, and the whole prospect looked brighter to me. He convinced me a convention in Texas, centered around the life and work of Robert E. Howard was an excellent idea, one that should be pursued while Howard was at a popular peak. At the same time we wanted to avoid a convention devoted to Howard's work to the exclusion of the other branches of imaginative writing. We feel now that our prospective programming has struck the proper balance. Initially we planned to hold the convention in Brownwood, Texas, where Howard lived briefly, and where he is buried. Brownwood is about thirty miles from Cross Plains. While there were advantages to this (You wouldn't believe the room and banquet rates we would have been able to offer you!), there were considerably more disadvantages, and Ft. Worth was chosen as a substitute. Because of the rather great distance between Ft. Worth and Cross Plains, it is impossible for us to offer any kind of charter service to the area where Howard lived and wrote. We urge, however, anyone who finds it possible to detour through the Cross Plains region to do so. The barrenness of the region, both physically and intellectually, will give you a new appreciation of Howard's imagination. We plan to do our very best to see that every person who attends the convention enjoys him or her self thoroughly. Some general advice for your visit to Texas is to be found on page 6. Details on the convention itself, not provided herein, will be found on the flyer accompanying this report. We have tried to make this little booklet a worthwhile project in its own right, and I hope you all enjoy it. It is necessary to say one more thing. This entire project could
