ELLERY QUEEN'S CROOKBOOK

No. 28; 25 stories in all; and almost half by the ladies, a quarter by newcomers -- and certainly something for everybody; among those we liked -- Stanley Ellin's two-sided psychotherapist in ""The Other Side of the Wall""; Patricia Highsmith's grocery boy who steals ""Woodrow Wilson's Necktie"" from a Tussaud type waxwork house only to. . . Tonita Gardner's little old lady alone in the woods with two voracious dogs; John Coyne's first story of a young Peace Corps couple in Africa; Mary Barrett's widow in ""Deja Vu"" who sold the gifts of her indulgent husband only to have them returned to her -- one by one; Patricia McGerr's cyanide roulette in ""Winner Takes All""; John Christopher's homo-ecocidal ""Island of Bright Birds""; Celia Fremlin's subtle, shadowed ""The Coldness of a Thousand Suns"" at the end of a day and a life; and more, more, more. It's been a great year.
