Multiple sites and people paid tribute to the great Houston-based writer and Texas original John Nova Lomax, who died this past week at the age of 53. A sampling, from the people who knew him and the places where his writing flourished:

Houston Chronicle

Texas Highways
Texas Monthly
CultureMap Houston
Houston Press

The Press also dug up JML’s classic series of stories called “Sole of Houston” in which he’d walk the entire length of an iconic Houston thoroughfare, sometimes over more than one day, and documented the experience in word and photo. Off the Kuff’s walk through four Congressional districts post from January was inspired in part by JML’s “Sole of Houston”, which I acknowledged here. I’m glad the Press was able to retrieve those stories, and they’re making me want to try this again. I’ll get back to you on that.
