256Reviews EDITOR'S COMMENT We should like to inform our readers and contributors that although the competition for our pages continues to be heavy (we accept only about 5% of the manuscripts we receive), we have virtually no backlog. We are open to articles on all aspects of American fiction from every critical approach, including interviews, bibliographies, manuscript analyses, biographical investigations, traditional essays drawing on literary history and New Criticism, poststructuralist studies utilizing contemporary theory, and explorations of race and gender in American fiction. We do expect, however, that our contributors are familiar with the style and technical norms we have established over the last seventeen years, particularly with regard to documentation. Please consult any issue of SAF before submitting an article. The sixteenth annual Alabama symposium on English and American literature will be devoted to "The Steinbeck Question."
