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.

Larry Thomas - Inteview

Texana Review offers this:

Interview: Larry Thomas, Texas Poet

It was November 2005.  Houston, Texas.  It was dusk.  I was looking for an old, cheap window casement. 
I walked through a narrow and rickety old door into the Texas Junk Company and almost knocked over an equally rickety six-foot shelf full of weird colored cowboy boots in a cluttered aisle.  I spun around, suddenly lost.  The place was stuffed to the ceiling with ... stuff!  I couldn't find the door I just entered through, so I scuttled down another cluttered aisle and stumbled into a big, bearded guy wearing the Texas state flag for a shirt.
He smiled a big, broad, friendly smile and held up his new book that had just been published, for me to see.  It was titled "Stark Beauty" and it was a book of poetry ... Texas poetry.  It was his fifth book.  His name was then (and still is), Larry Thomas.  He's a poet ... a Texas poet ... and a good Texas poet.
I told him he was perfect candidate for an interview for The Texana Review.  He believed me and agreed to chat about his work ...."
