Twentieth-Century Honky-Tonk

The Amazing Unauthorized Story of the Cain’s Ballroom’s First 75 Years in the words of the people who made it happen. From 1924 through 1999, TCHT tells it all, from Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys to U2, the Police, and Van Halen—as Cain’s became an essential stop for breakout acts and cosmic cowboys.

Sinister Serpent
The Cleansing: Book 3

The final installment of the CLEANSING trilogy barrels to a conclusion in SINISTER SERPENT, which finds WPA Folklore Project worker Robert A. Brown roaring through the foreboding Arkansas hills on his souped-up Indian motorcycle, pursued by unknown terrors. 

The Cleansing Series

Join WPA folklore collector Robert A. Brown and his seventh sense in the fear-fraught hills of 1939 Arkansas. Get caught up on all the strange magic, weird secrets, and way-out witchery in the critically acclaimed SEVENTH SENSE and its sequel, SATAN’S SWINE.

Right Down The Middle

A must for any sports fan, RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE celebrates the life and times of a star pitcher — and, later, successful pro golfer — who exchanged the dusty diamonds of his tiny Oklahoma hometown for the manicured playing field of Yankee Stadium, becoming a baseball legend in the process.
