Re: RARA-AVIS: SW HB: Brian/Tieresias

Brian: Anyone else on the list have other Southwestern authors that we could use to flesh out the month?

Todd: Well, aside from listmember James Reasoner, and Bill's good friend Joe Lansdale, there's Fredric Brown, arguably fringy Tony Hillerman and Marcia Muller (some of the time, in her case), and others I should be able to snap out, but time is tight...

Me: It's been a while since I've read them, but I recall Bernard Schopen's gloomy (in a good way) books being set in SW deserts (but I guess they can't be noir since so many of the sinister actions took place in the bright sun) and JMT Miller's were set on the Mexican border. I have not yet read anything by Richard Abshire, but I know his
(their, isn't it?) books are well thought of on the list; aren't they set in Dallas? Oh, what about Edward Mathis's Dan Roman? I used to love that series.
