the mighty Rexor has died.

may Thulsa Doom burn away the darkness, burn him the way to paradise.

my respect, honor, and thanks to him.

(in real life Rexor played the role of Ben Davidson, former NFL bad ass. read up here)

A friend of mine was trapping once over in the Starland mountains; had a trap set on a ledge; came back to it and saw it had been pulled back out of sight beyond the rim of the ledge. He thought he had a muskrat and climbed carelessly up and stuck his head over the ledge, and there was a skunk in the trap and it let him have a full volley smack in the face from about a three-foot range. My friend fell off the ledge with an ear-splitting shriek and rolled on the ground for some time after the exact fashion of a hound-dog which has got a similar experience. Curious how adversity levels the species and makes us all brothers under our fur, feathers or hide.

—Robert E. Howard, letter to August Derleth, July 4, 1935
