Stephen Jones, who spent more than two years and $10 million to $15 million in taxpayer money defending Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh--until the worst mass murderer in American history fired him for screwing up--has come home. To his books. Shelves, stacks, piles, cartons of books. They're everywhere in his 80-year-old white two-story house with columns that make it look a bit like Mount Vernon transplanted to the Oklahoma prairie.

Stephen Graham Jones may be the best prolific writer you haven't heard of yet, partly because his specialty is literary horror and partly because, despite having a specialty, he's quick to switch genres and hard to pin down. Count up his books and stories and anthologies and e-magazines and e-releases and he has been published 201 times -- but that was in early March, before his Texas noir "Not For Nothing" was published, and before the YA novel he co-wrote with Paul Tremblay, "Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly," came out in April.

Government witnesses scheduled to testify against accused Oklahoma City bomber Timothy J. McVeigh conceded in court Tuesday that they had given conflicting descriptions of the defendant and, in some cases, a man they say accompanied him in the days before the blast. The witnesses were called at a hearing here to determine whether they will be allowed to testify at McVeigh's trial or will be barred by the court from appearing, as defense attorneys argue they should.

Michael Tigar walks with a swagger. He tosses out lines from Shakespeare, John Milton and the Bible, then for good measure throws in a couple of "y'alls" and "aw shucks" for the judge. Stephen Jones speaks with a twang. He warns the press that the law is sacred and he will not try his case in the media. Then he heads for the network TV talk shows.

In the autumn of 1978, three future professional football players--John Elway, Tom Ramsey and Jay Schroeder--were quarterbacks for Los Angeles City Section high school teams. All were successful and heavily recruited. And all played for teams that lost to San Fernando, whose quarterback was Stephen Jones. They had one other thing in common. None of them was named to the All-City first team. Stephen Jones was. Elway, of course, is now starting for the Denver Broncos.

For the first time in the 78-year history of Bob Jones University, its leader will not be named Bob Jones. This weekend, Stephen Jones, great-grandson of the founder and the youngest son of retiring president Bob Jones III, is taking over the Bible Belt university known for its Christian fundamentalist beliefs and strict rules. With the change in leadership, some say more forms of change could be on the way. Others, though, say it's unlikely to come from a man molded at the institution.

For a glimpse of magnificent, fast-disappearing, natural America, grab this sleek, lavishly photographed, fact-jammed guidebook and start planning a tall-grass odyssey.

Stephen Jones took one day to decide whether he would take on the most dangerous job of his career: defending the man charged with the Oklahoma City bombing. On Thursday evening, the 55-year-old Jones, lawyer for Timothy McVeigh, told students at Chapman University School of Law why he took the case in 1995: "He needed a lawyer, and I had a constitutional duty to uphold my oath as a lawyer. I had no conflict of interest in the case, and I had a duty to accept."
