A 2006 reveiw by Don Graham of Conversations with Texas Writers, edited by Frances Leonard and Ramona Cearley, is available in the Great Plains Quarterly online as part of the University of Nebraska's Digital Commons project. The review begins:
"This book contains fifty interviews with "Texas" writers, including one "interview" with a dead writer, the pulp hero Robert E. Howard (author of the Conan books, etc.). It's actually Howard's biographer whu's interviewed, which is odd and conveys a significance that's unwarranted. The book is also a bit Austin-centric, as twenty of the authors I ive in the capital city.
There are many odd things about this book. One of the oddest is that the term "Texas writer" is newr meaningfully defined."

What's "unwarranted" about the conveyed significance?
