Review
“It is the compiler's belief as expressed in the detailed introduction that the gothic novel as practiced in America `rapidly diverge[d] from the European model just as our country had broken away from England.' Frank states that the American gothic reflects a `unity of mood and theme.' To this end he has brought together some 509 titles ranging from the work of Charles Brockden Brown to Stephen King. There are a great many familiar and to-be-expected names included (Poe, Hawthorne, Shirley Jackson) and there are somewhat unexpected entries, e.g., Moby Dick. (Although no one will ever claim that Robert E. Howard is anything more than a genre author, a closer reading of his work would have included a far more appropriate novella, Pigeons from Hell, one that more comfortably fits into the overall theme.) The annotations are...

From Booklist
The aging of the baby boomers heralds in its own way a rush to proffer advice and counsel on all topics, from reinventing lives to investing wisely for the short and longer terms. This experienced financial professional jumps at the opportunity of focusing on the latter. By no means a self-acclaimed money wizard, New York Times "Seniority" columnist Brock has, quite literally, learned on the job--and applies his knowledge frankly and pragmatically.

Book Review
Tom Clancy's latest love-letter to the military-industrial complex focuses on the Army--and Fred Franks, a general who helped smash Iraq in the Gulf War. In this first volume of a series on the intricacies of military command, Clancy traces the organizational success story of the U.S. Army's rise from the slough of Vietnam to the heights of victory in the Persian Gulf. In 1972, the Army lacked proper discipline, training, weapons, and doctrine; all these would be overhauled in the next 15 years. For those readers keen on such nuts and bolts, the book will be fascinating. But the book truly sparkles when Franks tells his story. A "tanker" who lost a foot in the invasion of Cambodia, he is a man of great courage, thoughtfulness, and integrity. One cannot help but wince when a civilian tells him, "You and those...
