Daisies in the Canyon

She’s here to claim her birthright…
Ex-army sergeant Abby Malloy feels no loss after the father she never knew passes away. Still, part of Ezra Malloy’s ranch belongs to her, and if the stubborn blonde has to live there for a year with two half-sisters who are strangers to her, so be it. Nothing could stand in the way of her inheritance…except a local sheriff wrapped in snug blue jeans and a sexy grin.

He’s here to claim her heart…
Cooper Wilson, the local sheriff and rancher next door, is having his world turned upside down. Abby is all straight talk and sweet, lush curves—the kind of woman who gets under his skin in just the right way. Whereas Cooper has roots in Palo Duro Canyon, Abby’s got wings. But he knows she belongs here. If she can stop running from her past, he’ll happily lead her to a brighter future, one hot cowboy kiss at a time.

Slewfoot Sally and the Flying Mule & Other True Tall Tales from Texas Piney Woods

TRUE, FANTASTIC STORIES FROM THE AWARD-WINNING FANTASY AUTHOR’S CHILDHOOD! These stories are based on things Balrog Award winner Ardath Mayhar saw and heard of growing up in the Piney Woods of East Texas. They are all based on true events, but in the tradition of her native Texas, the author has stretched each a bit. As she writes, “‘The Backfire’ is based on a tale told me by a friend about a doctor in the old days in Nacogdoches, Texas. ‘The Dullshooter’ is another story was told me by a friend about someone they knew personally. The caged-in grave is supposed to be in a small cemetery near Frankston, Texas. Its tenant actually dug himself out twice before he stayed put. I do hope he didn’t try the third time! ‘The Possum-Cats’ adventure was the work of my own grandfather Ellington and two of his brothers. They were the ones who chased those cows along the frozen creek, too. In fact it was my granddad who was whipped every morning before school began, in the certain knowledge it would have to be done and it was better to get it over with. The crippled boy is patterned after my shirttail kin, Jack Windham, who was, for many years, a doctor in Shelby County, Texas. ‘Cow in the Canefield’ happened to a friend from Appleby, Texas. My younger brother and I roamed the woods, fished in the ponds, waded in the creeks, and learned the ways of the Piney Woods in the way that sticks with you forever. That was a world that has gone as completely as ancient Rome. Too bad — it was a hard life but a satisfying one. You may realize by now that it is very hard to make up anything much stranger or more outre than what actually happens here in the Piney Woods.” These 23 stories are amusing, frightening, and even thought-provoking.

True Facts, Tall Tales, and Pure Fiction (Southwestern Writers Collection Series)

This volume brings together five essays that Mr. King considers “true facts, ” ten that constitute “tall tales, ” and four short stories that he classifies as “pure fiction.” All of these pieces represent an ongoing attempt to define and understand his native place and his mind’s country. They cover subjects ranging from a rape trial to dubious recipes and points between: writing, politics, Little League baseball, Texas basketball, racial integration in the military, dogs, sinning, and stories of troubled lives.Texas native Larry L. King, journalist, novelist, and author of the Broadway hit The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, has always excelled at magazine essays, and this collection brings together some of his best work. Arranged thematically in the three categories of the title, some are more factual than others, but what they all have in common is King’s graceful writing, which can range from heart-breaking to hilarious. A piece on a family tragedy in the distant past that has haunted him is especially poignant, and a visit to a modern political convention is hysterically funny. This book is a treat for long-time King fans, and is also a good introduction for those not yet familiar with his distinct view of the world.

A Tall Texas Tale

At the time I wrote this story in 1987, the Houston Astrodome was a fully functioning, vibrant sports arena. It was the first domed stadium and sometimes dubbed the “eighth wonder of the world”. It was the home of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and also the Houston Astros baseball team and the Houston Oilers football team (as they were then called). When I chose the Astrodome as Nick’s home in the story, I remember thinking that it was a ludicrous idea that the Dome could ever be empty and available. I even thought that was more unbelievable than a person who could be as tall as his age! But at this time in 2014, the Astrodome stands empty and is the subject of many local arguments and speculation over what its fate should be-demolition or repurposed facility. Who knows what will happen?

The Triumph & Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson: The White House Years

From Lyndon Johnson’s closest domestic adviser during the White House years comes a book in which “Johnson leaps out of the pages in all his raw and earthy glory” (The New York Times Book Review) that’s been called “a joy to read” (Stephen Ambrose, The Washington Post Book World). And now, a new introductory essay brings the reader up to date on Johnson’s impact on America today.

Califano takes us into the Oval Office as the decisions that irrevocably changed the United States were being crafted to create Johnson’s ambitious Great Society. He shows us LBJ’s commitment to economic and social revolution, and his willingness to do whatever it took to achieve his goals. Califano uncorks LBJ’s legislative genius and reveals the political guile it took to pass the laws in civil rights, poverty, immigration reform, health, education, environmental protection, consumer protection, the arts, and communications.

President Lyndon Johnson was bigger than life—and no one who worked for him or was subjected to the “Johnson treatment” ever forgot it. As Johnson’s “Deputy President of Domestic Affairs” (The New York Times), Joseph A. Califano’s unique relationship with the president greatly enriches our understanding of our thirty-sixth president, whose historical significance continues to be felt throughout every corner of America to this day.

A no-holds-barred account of Johnson’s presidency, The Triumph & Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson is an intimate portrait of a President whose towering ambition for his country and himself reshaped America—and ultimately led to his decision to withdraw from the political arena in which he fought so hard.
