Arlen, Alice.
"This is the first biography of Rich (1903-91), a "wilderness writer" who wrote of life in the backwoods of Maine. Not nearly as well known as her relative, the prolific Emily Dickinson, Rich began her writing career from financial need. Her first book, We Took to the Woods (1942), was a best seller and was followed by several other books." Catalog summary.

Tracy, P. J.
"When people start dying in strange ways in Minneapolis, everyone wonders what the murderer will do next--everyone except the employees of Monkeewrench Software, who are all too aware that their new serial-killer computer game is the model for the crimes. They go to the police with the what, where, and when of the next murders and quickly become suspects themselves as the killer strikes again exactly as they predict. Does the closely knit group of coworkers know something they're not telling about the all-important who and why?" Booklist review.
