Summary

Summary

"As any well-organized, carefully annotated bibliography does, this work by Southern and Wright brings order out of chaos. The 2,328 entries identify books, articles, sermons, pamphlets, and broadsides, among other formats, all centered on black folk culture with emphasis on the manifestations of that culture from 1600 to 1920 through song, dance, games, sermons, and illustrations. . . . This carefully done and useful bibliography is recommended for libraries on all campuses where there is an interest in the black experience." Choice

Booklist Review

Short mystery fiction has been a rich mine of material for the performing arts. Eleanor Sullivan, the editor of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, has culled 16 classic selections for this third collection of short stories adapted for television, stage, screen, and radio. Featuring such well-known works as Lucille Fletcher's "Sorry, Wrong Number," John O'Hara's "How I Am Now in Chi" (Pal Joey), Stanley Ellin's "Best of Everything," and an excerpt from Serita Deborah Stevens' novelization of "Cagney and Lacey," this chilling volume of murder and suspense will delight mystery lovers, especially television and film fans. --Mary Romano Marks
