In honor of Darkly Lit’s 1-year anniversary, and my cold, I present you with the infamous War of the Worlds broadcast by the Mercury Theatre on the Air! Presented with the gracious assistance of the Halloween Haunter, from halloweenhaunt.wordpress.com
Robert E. Howard is best known for creating Conan and the stories of Hyperborea. But while Howard loved barbarians and warriors of the past, he also created such classics as Faring Town – and Solomon Kane, the hero of tonight’s tale of terror. His untimely death in 1936 cut short what could have been an amazing career, and who knows what might have come afterwards. But tonight, settle in to enjoy both one of Howards’ poems, and the Rattle of Bones.
