"Fascinating information…little-known facts about remarkable Texans and events across the state.”—North Dallas Gazette
Texas is renowned for its legendary and colorful history—but even the state’s famous storytellers don’t know it all. Ever hear about the escaped ape in the Big Thicket? Or the "Interplanetary Capital of the Universe" that sat on the Gulf Coast? Does the cowboy hat that warmed U.S.-China relations ring a bell?
From the Staked Plain Quakers to the Kaiser Burnout, E.R. Bills delves into some of the most fascinating chapters of overlooked Texas lore.

Born in Fort Worth and raised in Aledo, E. R. Bills is an award-winning author, journalist and travel writer. His Lone Star titles include Texas Obscurities: Stories of the Peculiar, Exceptional & Nefarious (The History Press, 2013) and Texas Far and Wide: The Tornado with Eyes, Gettysburg's Last Casualty, the Celestial Skipping Stone and Other Tales (The History Press, 2017). He currently resides in North Texas and contributes to several publications around the state, including Texas Co-Op Power Magazine and Fort Worth Weekly.
A growing number of Texans are tired of Lone Star Conservatives, sick of being embarrassed by their political representatives and horrified by the devolution of the state conversation in terms of race, sex, sexual orientation, immigration, religious freedom, environmental responsibility, etc. From 2006-2016, Texas contrarian E.R. Bills came out swinging on these issues, and in these insightful, evocative missives, spares no purveyor of the farcical Lone Star status quo.
Bills unique perspective on these tops is indispensable. His last offering, Black Holocaust: The Paris Horror and a Legacy of Texas Terror (Eakin Press, 2015) documented an era when Texans burned an average of one African American a year at the stake for three decades. And his seminal book, The 1910 Slocum Massacre: An Act of Genocide in East Texas (The History Press, 2014) was a catalyst for the dedication of a historical marker commemorating the atrocity.
