Apparently he wished to be cremated
Fantasy/adventure writer Robert E. Howard (
Conan the Barbarian
) committed suicide on this day in 1936. He left a note:
All fled--all done, so lift me on the pyre;
The feast is over, and the lamps expire
which may or may not have been lifted from another source.
A great movie about Howard's life is
The Whole Wide World
, starring Vincent D'Onofrio.
