1. The dog exists only for man, man exists only for cats.- Robert E. Howard
This Caturday we’ll walk on the dark side with Robert E. Howard, pulp fiction legend, creator of Conan the Barbarian, and member of the Lovecraft Circle, who was born 107 years ago last week [Born Jan. 22, 1906]. Howard unflinchingly explored the dark side of cats in his essay The Beast From the Abyss. Even the most devoted cat fanciers, unabashed kitty-coddlers, and devotees of the feline mystique must nod in agreement with some his reflections. Legendary comic artist Peter Kuper later immortalized Howard’s essay with vivid etchings in his graphic novel The Last Cat Book.
