THE PIRATE MEETS THE QUEEN by Matt Faulkner
ADVENTURE
Released: May 1, 2005

"The details may differ, but this rendition is just as stirring as Emily Arnold McCully's The Pirate Queen (1995), and will leave readers awash in admiration for its self-assured narrator. (source list) (Picture book. 8-10)"
Embroidering his first-person historical tale a bit ("It's the way of storytelling," says he in a closing note), Faulkner recounts the exploits of fierce Irish pirate Granuaile (more often known as Grace, or Grania) O'Malley, from birth, through early buccaneering, to a climactic, intrepid face-off with fiery Queen Elizabeth—here dubbed "Red Liz"—after her piratical son's capture.

SELECTED LETTERS OF WILLIAM FAULKNER by William Faulkner
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Feb. 1, 1976

"Blotner's explanatory footnotes are helpful and concise."
These letters, written between 1918 and 1962, and selected and edited by the author of Faulkner: A Biography, may disappoint the majority of readers; they yield neither the picture of private affairs and sentiments nor the record of compositional experimentation that, for example, Virginia Woolf's correspondence does.

UNCOLLECTED STORIES OF WILLIAM FAULKNER by William Faulkner
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 1, 1979

"Academic interest exclusively."
