The American Southwest is a land of mysterious allure with its scenic vistas of forests, deserts, and mountains, and its tri-cultural makeup of Hispanics, Indians, and the mix of Caucasians, African-Americans, and Asians.
The second edition of my textbook from a university press, Media Management in the Age of Giants, came out in mid-2012. I also have a chapter about the myths of the Coronado expedition of 1540-42 in the 2011 anthology, The Latest Word from 1540.
I wrote a new introduction and reprinted the Harry Bates sci-fi classic of 1940, Farewell to the Master, in which I also listed titles of 200 other first-contact stories and books. I also published my first mystery, titled A Brother's Cold Case.
