Texas Confidential: Sex, Scandal, Murder, and Mayhem in the Lone Star State
Michael O. Varhola


he latest installment in the Confidential series, Texas Confidential pokes at the seamy underbelly of the Lone Star State, where folks do everything—including sex, scandal, murder, and mayhem—in a BIG way. Author Michael J. Varhola, author of Clerisy’s Ghosthunting Maryland and Ghosthunting Virginia, rounds up more than 40 Texas tales—from the rogues who defended the Alamo to the rogues who brought down Enron.

Along the way, readers learn the sordid details of sex—from Miss Hattie’s Bordello in West Texas (now a museum!) to “Charlie Wilson’s Whore”; scandal—from corrupt governors “Ma” and “Pa” Ferguson to corrupt politicians Lyndon Johnson and Tom DeLay, to the nefarious “Duke of Duval County”; murder—from Bonnie and Clyde to the Kennedy Assassination to the over-zealous cheerleader mom and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre; and mayhem—from the crash of a UFO in 1897 in the little town of Aurora to Nazi war criminals hiding in El Paso (while working for the local government) to David Koresh and his ill-fated Branch Dividian cult.

Packed with pictures and loaded with sidebars, Texas Confidential is informative, irreverent, and enormously entertaining. Varhola leaves no sacred cow untipped. As he wends his way through Texas history, he explores—with a gimlet eye and a pinched nose—many of its less glorious moments and explodes a few myths for good measure.

Like all the books in the series, Texas Confidential is all in good fun, if not in good taste

The First America's Team: The 1962 Green Bay Packers

The First America's Team: The 1962 Green Bay Packers
Bob Berghaus


The first book focused on Vince Lombardi's greatest team and arguably the most dominant team in pro football history: the 1962 Green Bay Packers.

The 1962 Green Bay Packers are still considered one of the most dominating teams in the history of the National Football League. In 2007, when the New England Patriots were trying to become the first team to go unbeaten during a 16-game season and win the Super Bowl, there were many stories written about their place in history, and the ’62 Packers were always listed among the top three teams of all time.

There are a number of books on the Packers already, showing a strong and sustained interest in one of the most popular sports franchises in America. There are also a number of books—though far fewer—on the Packers of the Vince Lombardi era. There has never been a book, however, focused on Lombardi’s, and (arguably) pro football’s, greatest team: the 1962 Packers.

The 1962 Green Bay Packers will examine how the team was built and on Lombardi's coaching staff, how four of the five assistants went on to become head coaches -- Bill Austin, Tom Fears, Norb Hecker and Phil Bengtson. The team was rich with personalities, from the glamour-conscience Hourning to the emotional Nitschke to the laconic Starr. Of course, the strongest personality of all was Lombardi’s, who shaped these many unique individuals and talents into a team so dominant it changed the game forever. The Packers of this era won five championships in seven years, including the first two Super Bowls, creating a dynasty in the smallest market in professional sports. The 1962 team was the signature team and their power sweep became a national phenomenon. Despite playing in little Green Bay, the players on Lombardi's team became national heroes. This really was the first America's Team.

The Hockey Dad Chronicles
Ed Wenck


An Indentured Parent's Season on the Rink

The sport of ice hockey is going through a transitional period, losing popularity in the United States even as it gains momentum in other countries. The Hockey Dad Chronicles is the touching and funny story of one season in the youth hockey career of Ed Wenck’s son, Oliver, when he played for the Indianapolis Junior Ice. Hockey parents spend an inordinate amount of time and money on their child’s sport of choice — considerably more than soccer, football, or basketball parents dish out. They get their children to the ice rink for 7 a.m. ice time, they travel with them to other states for games every other weekend — and if they’re anything like Ed Wenck, they spend a lot of time sitting in bleachers wondering at the absurdity of it all. As youth hockey grows ever more popular, increasing numbers of parents are seeing their lives taken over by their children’s hockey careers. The Hockey Dad Chronicles will be a familiar, amusing, and moving reminder to them — and to all parents who devote themselves to their children’s extracurricular activities, whether they’re sports, drama, or dance — of what it’s all about.
