RE: REH's birthday
Thanks for posting this. I'll never forget being awoken late at night by a phone call from a West Coast friend to let us know abt his death. I still re-read his work, esp. the stories and the juveniles.

My pleasure! It's moving to hear that you love his work, too. Like you, I still re-read his books.

I remember reading his things ages ago. This makes me want to pick them up again.
