In response to Robert Dagnall's inquiry about charges of racism in
of Huckleberry Finn," David Tomlinson cited a special issue of the Mark
Journal on the subject (Fall 1984).  The essays in that issue have been
and republished, along with six new essays, new introductory material, and
annotated bibliography, in a book titled "Satire or Evasion?: Black
on Huckleberry Finn" (Duke University Press, 1992).  I am one of the book's
three editors; the others are Tom Tenney and Thadious Davis.  --Jim Leonard
