"The Slow Life and Fast Death of DJ Screw" by Michael Hall is the layered story of one of the most influential cultural figures in Texas -- a generous godfather to a generation of rappers, an entrepreneur of Houston's mean streets, and the master of a scene fueled by codeine cough syrup and hip-hop beats.

"Dreaming of Her" by Pamela Colloff is the exclusive oral history of Selena Quintanilla Perez, as recalled by her closest family and friends.

"He Ain't Going Nowhere" by John Spong profiles Guy Clark, the godfather of Nashville songwriters.

"A Home of Last Resort" by Sonia Smith reports on a doomsday community for the rich under construction in Ector, Texas.

"The Shelf Life of John Mackey" by Tom Foster is the exclusive story that led up to that momentous decision for Whole Foods to sell itself to Amazon.
