LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

he author of a psychological thriller gets inside his protagonist's mind by trying out a little stalking of his own and discovers that a voyeuristic relationship to the world is gradually becoming the norm.

Consigned to the horror genre by its publisher, House of Leaves is a hallucinatory morphine-drip of a book that hardly resembles anything in the current horror field, or much of anything else in current fiction.

Stefan Kanfer's new biography of Groucho Marx is the story of an insecure, self-educated man who yearned for acceptance and love, yet who consistently sabotaged his relationships with his wives and children.

Also, a troublemaker of a first novel, a celebrity daughter publishes her first fiction, and more.

Other Voices, Other Rooms [7]
Sharon Bridgforth's works aren't meant to be read silently,. Some folks would say that's like eating barbecue without the sauce.
— Suzy Spencer, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
