Terrell Guillory

Terrell Guillory was born and reared beside the 98th meridian running through Texas, the dividing line between the South and the West, according to rainfall, farming to the east, ranching to the west—two cultures. He was exposed to other cultures as well: The Anglo-Celt and the German, the Mexican-American and the African-American of Central Texas. His parents' roots were in Louisiana, his mother from Winn Parish, his father from Evangeline, marinating him in two other cultures—Anglo-Saxon southern and Cajun French.

He was educated at the University of Texas in Austin and at the University of Washington, and he's taught English at the universities of Washington, Idaho, and Purdue. For many years he divided his time between the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf Southwest. Most of his writings come from notes taken from glimpses through the window of a train which arrives too soon.

Terrell Guillory died in 2004. He lived in the Northwest prior to his death, a novelist and scholar who inspired young writers through his knowledge and his passion for writing. We who knew him deeply regret his passing. We miss Terrell very much and regret that we weren’t able to publish more of his works. He died with several manuscripts yet unpublished. We are honored that we were able to bring this wonderful novel into print.

Schilling, from a Study in Lost Time

by Terrell Guillory

t of works by William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy, Terrell Guillory has created a complex and tragic universe told in compelling prose. On a doctor’s dying day, he reflects on his life, on his intense loves and his equally intense hatreds, on his successes and his failures, on marriage and lovers and deception. What emerges is a work of art that reaches a depth of passion and emotion seldom found in modern fiction.
