LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

hough he sometimes strains at poetry when straightforward prose would have sufficed, Robert Kaplan communicates his overwhelming enthusiasm for zero, the symbol and concept that number-phobic civilians all too often take for granted.

"Interstate Dreams," the latest venture into mind-over-matter fiction from Neal Barrett Jr., is a comic thriller that rides the highway between Austin and Houston while skirting the bounds of the natural and the mystical.

Exploitation movies have been ignored by most film historians and ridiculed by arbiters of "good taste." To rectify this appalling situation, film historian Eric Schaefer has concocted what may become the definitive study of this industry.

Plus, American poetry, the Dark Knight, and more.
