What do you know, I'm in a book!
In his new compilation Untold New Mexico: Stories from a Hidden Past, just published by Sunstone Press, Jason Silverman included a version of my story on political murders in the state, (Albert J. Fountain, Jose Francisco Chaves, Ovida "Cricket" Coogler). This originally was published in New Mexico Magazine in 2004.
Also Jason quotes me and acknowledges an old New Mexican story of mine in his chapter on the 1947 execution of Louis Young.
The book is full of stories about Pancho Villa, Buddy Holly, Chuck Jones, Igor Stravinsky, Jack Johnson, Roswell aliens and more.
There's stuff by other buddies of mine too. Jon Bowman lists his favorite movies shot here and Bayou Seco (Ken Keppeler & Jeanie McLerie) list their favorite New Mexico songs.
And yes, the introduction is by none other than the governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson. (No, he doesn't comment directly on my contributions.)
