Discover the spirits and ghosts that have been keeping Austin weird for centuries in this guidebook to the city’s supernatural citizens. A killer lurks in the dark streets, victimizing servant girls throughout 1885, and Austin becomes the first American city to claim a serial killer. The spirits of convicts wander amidst the manicured grounds of the Texas State Capitol, while inside a public servant assassinated in 1903 still haunts the corridors. These are just a few of the strange and frightening tales of Haunted Austin. Within these pages lies evidence that the frontier bravado legendary in so many Texas men and women lives on long after death. Author Jeanine Plumer explores the sinister history of the city and attempts to answer the question: why do so many ghosts linger in Austin?

Phyllis Cole Braunlich sketches the life story of Lynn Riggs (18991954), the playwright best known as the author of Green Grow the Lilacs, the play that formed the basis for the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! Today Riggs is recognized as one of the twentieth century’s most innovative playwrights. Santa Fe, Hollywood, New York, and Chapel Hill: these were the cities that Lynn Riggs, “father of the folk play,” called home, along with eastern Oklahoma, the scene of his memorable re-creations of Oklahoma Territory before statehood. Riggs traveled widely to make his living and his fame, and along the way he earned the friendship of many avant-garde writers and successful theatre people of his time. This biography is also a chronicle of literary and café society on both coasts and in New Mexico during the 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s.
