Winship's Log

Robert Winship

“I was trying to remember the other day exactly what my first memories are of Kimble County, of Junction, of Segovia, Texas. There is some spectacular stuff there, if I can bring it all to the surface—without making anything up. That’s not real hard to do, but it takes time. You have to go slow.”—Bob Winship

“In my almost forty years of editing, from journals to anthologies to books, I have from time to time encountered a spectacular talent who, because of circumstance, has never been recognized for the genius that he is. Such is the case with Bob Winship, whose story collection The Brushlanders is as fine a book of short fiction as has ever come out of the state of Texas and whose two novels, Every Man Also and Flannery’s Crossing, are astonishingly fine reads. Bob keeps to himself, though, and refuses to engage in the self-promotion game that so often propels to prominence lesser lights that in time will extinguish on their own, dying from simple lack of talent.

“In this, Bob’s first book of essays, the reader will get an in-depth look at one of our finest writers and relish the rich literary world of the western Texas Hill Country that he brings to life”—Paul Ruffin, Director, Texas Review Press

BOB WINSHIP, a native Texan who spent much of his earlier life in Houston, later worked in the oil-tool industry, making numerous trips to Russia. After earning his M.A. in Creative Writing, he taught for Texas A&M and other colleges before retiring to the family’s Rockpile Ranch in Segovia. He is the author of several books of fiction.
