Why doesn't anyone set stories in Houston?

Reading nonethewiser's latest book review, in which she comments on a book set in Halifax, reminded me of an irritation: Why doesn't anyone set stories in Houston? American big city stories are universally set in LA or New York, or maybe Chicago. Other stuff is set lots of other places. Authors do a good job of evoking their settings, and generally get them right. Even so, I never seem to read anything that's set in Houston, and it's annoying me a bit.
