DANIEL WALLACE does not make it easy for any reviewer who wants to avoid ruining the experience of reading his new novel, "Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician." Not until the very end of the book do the characters and plots snap into sharp focus. And, even then, some of the most tantalizing mysteries remain unrevealed. Wallace is the author of "Big Fish," which provided the raw material for a 2003 movie by Tim Burton, as well as "The Watermelon King" and "Ray in Reverse."

OVERVIEW: Osteoarthritis, the disease involving breakdown of the cartilage, is a major public health issue, establish the authors, both rheumatologists (Lane at UC San Francisco, Wallace at UCLA and Cedars-Sinai). It's the second most common cause of disability in this country, affecting 23 million Americans; by 2020, 30 million Americans will have it. HOW IT WORKS: Lane and Wallace lead readers through the definitions and anatomy of arthritis and dispel myths about its causes.

Investigators were looking Tuesday for at least four men who burst into a south Oxnard home, where they tied up a young couple at gunpoint and robbed the house, officials said. Just before midnight Monday, four masked men armed with handguns rushed into the home in the 3000 block of South J Street, an Oxnard police spokesman said. The robbers bound Daniel Wallace, 19, and Tequa Williams, 27, and took an unknown amount of cash and property, the spokesman said.

The musical -- featuring the original Broadway sets and costumes -- is coming to Southern California in a run scheduled for Oct. 31 to Nov. 16. Musical Theatre West will produce "Big Fish" at the Carpenter...

Robin Abcarian's piece (on Perez Hilton, "Wired for Conflict," Aug. 9) was fantastic. It was honest and funny and enlightening. I have mailed Mr. Hilton numerous times, just to let him know he is appreciated and I occasionally throw some fun stuff his way, which sometimes, surprisingly, ends up on his site! I am a straight Mormon from Ohio, and when Prop. 8 passed, I sent him a letter of encouragement, letting him know that not all Mormons are small minded. But more importantly, I told him to have hope.

Tricyclics, an older class of antidepressants that includes Elavil, Tofranil and Sinequan, are the most common form of drug therapy for fibromyalgia. They can relax the muscles, and promote the secretion of endorphins, hormones that help fight pain and boost mood. "But only about a third of people who take tricyclics have a significant response," says Dr. Daniel J. Wallace, a rheumatologist in the UCLA School of Medicine.

What are the BAFTAs? It's amazing how few people know. The short answer is that the BAFTAs -- or the British Academy Film Awards -- are the English Oscars. But let's look at it in more detail: What do the BAFTAs and the Oscars have in common, and how are they different? Having attended the BAFTAs this year (and being a lifelong viewer of the Oscars), screenwriter, novelist and sketch artist Daniel Wallace is in a nearly perfect position to compare and contrast. * Red carpet: check.
