Graham Austin-King was born in the south of England and weaned on broken swords and half-forgotten spells. A shortage of these forced him to consume fantasy novels at an ever-increasing rate, turning to computers and tabletop gaming between meals. Fae - The Wild Hunt is his first completed novel and draws on a foundation of literary influences ranging from David Eddings to Dean Koontz.

Don Graham digs into Giant like a wildcatter drilling for oi. -Philadelphia Enquirer. One of the joys of reading Graham is his ability to tell a complete tale, a scene from life, and cap it with a laconic statement of a theme. A lively study of a book and movie that helped define the image of Texas in the last century.

Don Graham brings together the history, color, and character of Texas’s capital city since 1839 when it was selected, on the advice of Mirabeau B. Lamar, as the site for a new capital of the then-Republic of Texas.Essays, fiction, and poetry reveal the variety of literary responses to Austin through the decades and are organized in a roughly chronological fashion to reveal the themes, places, and personalities that have defined the life of the city.Austin was always about three things—natural beauty, government, and education—and thus many of the pieces in this volume dwell upon one and sometimes all of these themes.Besides O. Henry, the other most important figures in the city’s history were J. Frank Dobie, Roy Bedichek, and Walter P. Webb: folklorist, naturalist, historian. During their heyday, from the 1930s through the early 1960s, they were the face of literary culture in the city. They remain a source of interest, pride, and sometimes controversy.Austin is a well-known haven of liberal political activism, represented by such well-known figures as Lyndon B. Johnson, Ralph Yarborough, Ann and David Richards, Liz Carpenter, Willie Morris, John Henry Faulk, and Molly Ivins.The city is also a haven for literary writers, many of whom appear in these pages: Carolyn Osborn, Rolando Hinojosa-Smith, Dagoberto Gilb, Stephen Harrigan, and Lawrence Wright, to name a few. Among the poets, Thomas Whitbread, Dave Oliphant, David Wevill, and Christopher Middleton have long been on the scene.Certain sites recur—the University Tower, Barton Springs, various watering holes of another kind—so that for anybody who has ever spent time in Austin will experience twinges of nostalgia for vanished icons, closed-down venues, long-gone sites of pleasure brought to life once again, in these pages.
User reviews
Don Graham has gathered a fine collection of short pieces that come from the better literary talenta associated with Austin and that illuminate each author's work. These selections are so fine on their own literary merits that they could represent any city or state, but mark just how strong Austin has been over its creative literary years.

A sampler of styles, content, literary formats -- and not just the same old Dobie, Bedichek, Webb. or even McMurtry. The unexpected shows how hard the editor worked at searching these out. With thoughtful comments by Graham who can stand right there among the better writers himself. Useful biographical notes. (Now we need a collection of contemporarilly composed Texas songs.)
This is an excellent collection. History, fiction, commentary ... really good stuff. If you like good writing you'll like this book even if you don't care about Austin or Texas.
