And Our Critics Commend

July 05, 1987

Storming the Magic Kingdom, John Taylor (Knopf). "While 'Storming the Magic Kingdom' is a solidly researched and entirely factual account of the events leading up to the takeover (attempt of Disney Productions) by a coalition of corporate raiders and financial manipulators, the book has all the qualities of an animated film" (Elaine Kendall).

Titanic: The Death and Life of a Legend, Michael Davie (Knopf), "is an absorbing, crisp chronicle of the Titanic, from its conception through the discovery and exploration of the wreckage on the sea floor by a U.S.-French expedition in 1985 and 1986. This volume's non-sensational, frequently understated approach makes the facts of the Titanic lively and fascinating" (Bill Stall).

Vampires: Two Centuries of Great Vampire Stories, edited by Alan Ryan (Doubleday). "Ryan has unearthed some of the very best tales in the genre, including some that can only be tangentially classified as vampiric. 'Vampire' may be the definitive treasury of things that go 'slurp' in the night" (Laurence Coven).
