Every year on the short-story writer’s birthday (Sept. 11), the O. Henry Museum does readers an enormous service by producing a roll call of Austin authors with recently published books. We asked for a copy of the list to share with you. Not sure there’s another Texas city that could produce such a decent one. (Forgive the fact that they listed me. Didn’t lobby.)
