Series Description

This series, kept as a discrete group of materials by Sublett in his home, contains drafts of some of his short pieces for the Austin Chronicle, including The Nature of the Crime (1984), a piece never published but which prompted the Chronicle's editorial staff to urge Sublett to write a novel. The rest of the items relate to Rock Critic Murders: consent and release forms,an early title page design containing a saguaro cactus, and blurbs solicited from James Ellroy, Gerald Petievich, and Kinky Friedman.
