WHO MADE STEVIE CRYE? A NOVEL OF THE AMERICAN SOUTH. [Sauk City, Wisconsin]: Arkham House Publishers, Inc., . Octavo, cloth. First edition. 3591 copies printed. "Columnist Mary Stevenson Crye finds her typewriter spontaneously generating fiction featuring herself and her family after taking the machine for repairs to an eccentric young man who claims to be a fan of her writing. As the stories it tells begin interweaving with dreams and reality, it becomes increasingly difficult for her to separate life from art. A droll, dark comedy that proposes supernatural explanations ranging from demonic possession to communication from beyond the grave and satirizes the trend in contemporary dark fantasy to turn the complications of ordinary life into the stuff of horror fiction." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-32.
