LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

eekly Wire's fiction selection this week begins with a look at Tony Hillerman's latest, "The First Eagle." Following tribal policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, this thirteenth book in the series of these two lawmen is a satisfying mystery. Also in fiction are reviews of Rick Moody's "Purple America," Geoff Ryman's "253," and Peter Craig's "The Martini Shot."

Back in reality, our non-fiction offerings begin with "The Spiritual Tourist: A Personal Odyssey Through The Outer Reaches Of Belief," by Mick Brown. Tucson Weekly's Leigh Rich finds this account of Mr. Brown's search for spirituality pure hell. Read more in "New Age, Spew Age." Also included are an anthology on photographer Francesca Woodman, and a pair of books involving Mary Butts, one from her and one about her.

Wrapping things up are quick clips reviewing "Texas Music" by Rick Kosler, "Tounge First" by Emily Jenkins, "Why Can't I Find What I Want?" by Charles Elliot and Maureen Kirby Lassen, "Globalization and its Discontents" by Saskia Sassen
