- Patrick Mac Conaire was used once as the pen name for the story "Ghost in the Doorway". Steve Costigan was the name Howard used for himself in his semi-autobiography Post Oaks & Sand Roughs. Patrick Ervin was an occasional pen name, especially for the Dennis Dorgan stories. Patrick Howard was a pen name used for some of Howard's poetry. Sam Walser was a pen name used for the Wild Bill Clanton stories. Due to some pulp magazines using house names, especially when re-printing older works, Howard was also credited as: Mark Adam, William Decatur, R. T. Maynard and Max Nielson. Ghost Stories used John Taverel as the author's name for "The Apparition in the Prize Ring" to make it seem to be a true story.
- Lord (1976, p. 34): "Well, I am largely Gaelic, Irish, and Scotch-Irish, and Norman-Irish, and Anglo-Irish, and straight Norman, with a touch of the Dane—Dano-Irish, from a red-headed great-grandmother. Mainly I am Irish and Norman, with the Irish predominating."—Robert E. Howard, "A Touch of Trivia"
