EDEN by Stanislaw Lem
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 1989

"Like Lem's most recent, the brilliant Fiasco (1987), a terrifyingly plausible picture of a world gone mad."

BARBARA BUSH by Pamela Kilian
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: June 12, 1992

"An informative biography, then, but not definitive. (Sixteen-page photo insert— not seen.)"
