This booklet was for sale at the 100th birthday celebration for Robert E. Howard held at The Torch in Fort Worth, Texas on January 21, 2006.  All profits from the sale of the booklet and the $5 admission fee for the event went to the City of Cross Plains Fire Relief Fund. The event was originally scheduled to be held at the Black Dog  Tavern, but was moved at the last minute.
An open mic was available at the event and various people read excerpts from the vast range of REH works.
A Robert E. Howard bookmark was given away with each copy of  ODES AT THE BLACK DOG.  The bookmark was also sold separately. The poem "Musings" is printed on the bookmark.
