KIRKUS REVIEW

20 of the S.E.P.'s yearly production, that keeps this perennial collection in its hardy classification. Among the popular favorites; Raine and a Tugboat Annie story; Gilpatric and his never-failing Mr. Glencannon; Robert Carson and a machine-tooled romance' Douglas Welch and hard to get boys and girls; Sophie Kerr and Vive-la-France (and la Romance). Regional as well as historical, current as well as imaginative,- this is mass-production, Joe Public's pulse-taking, in fictional form. A suspicion of bitterness (Roderick Lull), a dash of practical religion (Joe David Brown and Dennis Harrington), a couple of turns on children (William Brooks, Jack Sher, Frank O'Rourke) and a spot or two of murder, police, ghosts, flood, battle and marriage- this recipe is foolproof but not critic-safe. Maybe not literary, but readable.
