The Bookshelf, The Parlor, The Young Texas Reader, and the Monthly

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, . The Texas Parlor carries "general" bookish information and non-book information and even different Texana news and notes of use to the bibliographically challenged and other nosey folks intersted in historical, literary, and cultural observations. Will's Texana Monthly may carry material from either blog, but extends itself beyond those, especially for longer compilations or treatments. The Monthly, the Bookshelf and the Parlor are all companions. So, is the Young Texas Reader which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

Lad Moore of East Texas - Circus roustabout and wordsman

Leo Moore moved from Marshall

and now lives in Jefferson. The many intervening years were filled with richness. His essay on his adolescent circus days in "Murder-By-4" is touched by lightsome, elegaic, and realist tones. Seems he'd be a good fellow with which to share a Bayou LeMarche stroll or a slice of pie.

Find Lad's flying father, in the "Bonham Blaster" at

And there's his blog "Derimacasi Cumbali: RUMINATING: (roo'ma-na-ting)*verb: (1.) To consider a matter at length (2.) Chewing of a cud. regurgitate from a divided stomach"

His two short story collections are "Odie Dodie" and "Tailwind."
