LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

his week's Book section opens with a piece from FW Weekly's Stacy Schnellenbach-Bogle on the struggles of a man trying to get his JFK theories published. After years of study and research (and some influence on Oliver Stone's "JFK" via his book "Crossfire"), Jim Marrs insists there is still more to tell.

Reviews this week cover authors Robert Coover, Mary-Ann Tirone Smith, Michael Lowenthal, Simon Schama, Helge Pedersen, and more in our Mini Reviews section.
