The Mark Twain Forum needs a reviewer for the following book:

     Haupt, Clyde V.  _Huckleberry Finn on Film: Film and Television
     Adaptations of Mark Twain's Novel, 1920-1993_.  Jefferson, NC, and
     London: McFarland and Company, 1994.  Pp. xi + 187.  Includes
     bibliography and index.  Cloth, 6-1/4" x 9-1/4".  $35.00.  ISBN

The publisher's blurb states:

     Since 1920 there have been 11 film or television versions of
     _Huckleberry Finn_, some true to Mark Twain's story, most loosely
     constructed around the classic work without being faithful to it.
     Provided here are production histories, plot summaries, and
     contemporary reviews for each of the adaptations.

     Clyde V. Haupt is a professor of English at Erie Community College
     in Buffalo.

As usual, the review must be of publishable quality, and it would be
due within two months of your receipt of the book (i.e., late-May
1996).  The deadline is particularly important, as we are making every
effort for Forum reviews to appear before print reviews.  If you are
inclined to procrastinate, please don't offer to review the book.

If you're interested in writing this review, please send me both your
home and institutional mailing addresses and phone numbers.  If I
don't already know you, it would be helpful for you to explain in what
respect you're qualified to write this review.  (If we haven't
exchanged e-mail recently, it might be a good idea for you to remind
me of this info.)

I look forward to hearing from you!
