Fall, it seems, starts earlier every year. Certainly, that's true of publishing: Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom" — arguably the big book of the season — has been a topic of discussion since mid-August, while other anticipated titles (Tom McCarthy's "C," Scarlett Thomas' "Our Tragic Universe") have been out since Labor Day. Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg; good books await all autumn long. Here, then, is a sample of what we have to look forward to, as the days grow shorter and the evenings stretch before us, waiting to be filled.

The Fall Season is here, people. And though premieres will happen up and down what is still anachronistically called a dial, the season remains mainly the domain of the broadcast networks - which seem bent for the moment not on aping cable TV, as many think they should, but rather distinguishing themselves from it. By getting classic. Which is not necessarily to say good - though not necessarily to say bad, either. FOR THE RECORD: Fall TV preview: A capsule description of the new DirecTV drama "Full Circle" in the Sept.

A dance season has tended to be defined by one or two international companies of hefty size that have the selling power equivalent of a blockbuster movie. As with the blockbuster, however, that model has morphed. It has become prohibitively expensive and difficult to entice the elite, overseas classical companies - think the Paris Opera Ballet or England's Royal Ballet - to tour the West Coast. That said, we still have a strong contingent of impressive talent heading our way this fall, as presenters such as the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, the Music Center and the Segerstrom Center for the Arts entice audiences with respected A-list artists, including Australia's Lucy Guerin, the Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and Russian ballerina Diana Vishneva, respectively.

LOCAL 'Medea' Few roles are as ferociously inviting to powerhouse actresses as Medea, the title character of Euripides' ancient masterpiece who sets out to teach her two-timing husband, Jason, a lesson he surely will never forget. Essaying the role in UCLA Live's production, directed by Lenka Udovicki, is Annette Bening, who will get to exercise her more menacing muscles. No stranger to dramatic malice, Bening won Oscar nominations for her portrayals of chilly connivers in "The Grifters" and "American Beauty."

Ken Price, the great Los Angeles sculptor who died in February at 77, always operated just below the threshold of first-tier international acclaim. Widely admired by a knowledgeable coterie of collectors, critics and other artists, he had the dubious misfortune to work with clay — an art material that, despite its ancient pedigree, languishes in a modern ghetto. All that is poised to change. "Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective" kicks off the fall art season Sept. 16 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art before traveling to museums in Texas and New York.

It's a pretty autumn day on an Ohio farm, and the leaves are changing into red, yellow and deeper shades of green. Apples ripen; grapes hang on vines. It's just rained, and the air is clear as a letter arrives from the farm family's son, Pete, who's been away at war. His brother calls to their father to come up from the fields to read it, and the boy's mother hurries over too. A glance shows the parents that the letter was not written by their son. It recounts the boy's wounding, in a gunshot to the chest, with a reassurance that he "will soon be better.

NEW YORK - Sherlock Holmes has really been through the wringer lately. In two feature films, Guy Ritchie turned the pipe-smoking detective into a 19th century British butt-kicker who's as likely to corner criminals with his fists as with his brain. An increasingly popular BBC show restores some of the meditative qualities of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original but brings Holmes to modern-day London. Now a new broadcast series, "Elementary," offers perhaps the most fanciful interpretation: Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller)
