LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

uthor Robert J. Sawyer has barely been writing science fiction professionally for 10 years. Having garnered much critical acclaim, he recently ascended to the post of President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Metro Pulse's Adrienne Martini sits down for a chat with him in "The Stuff of Science Fiction."

From Austin Chronicle we get a look at recent biographies of Dawn Powell, John Nash, Dennis Potter, and Larry Sanders; just a sampling of the overwhelming tide of titles washing ashore recently.

Reviews this week include "The Woody" by Peter Lefcourt, David J. Skal's "Screams of Reason," Michael Knight's "Dogfight and Other Stories," "The End of a Family Story" by Peter Nadas, "Flora's Kitchen" by Regina Romero, a pair of books by poet Jim Harrison, and a look at new cookbooks.
