KIRKUS REVIEW

Under the present editorial policies, the Houghton, Mifflin and the Double-day short story annuals seem to be converging, both as to representation of names and type of material -- contemporary, readable, well styled. There are few newcomers, - Clara Laidlaw's gentle Little Black Boys is outstanding; William C. White with a western, and Elmer Grossberg's Negro story -- these are our favorites. Among the known names, read Kay Royle's The Canals of Mars (one of very few war stories); Bessie Breuer's suavely savage Pigeons on Casserole, and Josephine Johnson's The Glass Pigson.....Good reading -- good writing.
