Page Two: Wonder Stories
The unbound adventures and outrageous duets of a life spent with science fiction
Columns  July 25, 2008, by Louis Black
"...There was a later story about Dwight Eisenhower as a jazz horn player and one in which Laurel and Hardy, the Marx Brothers, and the Three Stooges were slapstick-racing through Iowa to try to stop the Big Bopper, Buddy Holly, and Ritchie Valens from taking off into the snowy night sky, where their lives ended. Howard Waldrop wrote all those stories, and so many more – though I expect some editors, even those completely untrained in dentistry, would have had an easier job pulling teeth than they did getting those stories from Howard...."

Writing Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror in Austin
How local authors who work beyond the world we know meet, connect, and launch themselves into the business
Arts Story  July 13, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Brown's arrival coincided with the 20th anniversary of ArmadilloCon, the homegrown annual sci-fi convention that was not just a celebration of the more fantastic genres of literature and one hell of a fannish good time, but somewhere aspiring writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror could meet and polish their craft via workshops led by their fellow writers from the local scene. In the days of ArmadilloCon's founding, such writers included Bruce Sterling, Howard Waldrop, Steven Utley, Lisa Tuttle, Tom Reamy, and their beloved mentor, University of Texas anthropology professor Chad Oliver – all members of the Turkey City Writer's Workshop, a Lone Star coterie that became one of the epicenters of speculative fiction..."

Dark Forces Gathering
ArmadilloCon 32
Books Story  August 27, 2010, by Richard Whittaker
"...For what the organizers mildly describe as a little literary convention, the program participant list reads like a who's who of genre pioneers and Nebula Award winners.
