BOOK REVIEWS
"Luft's List, compiled by a librarian with an eye for the weird and wonderful, greatly expands the 'Remarkable Names of Real Authors' section of our Bizarre Books, setting a new benchmark -- which, no doubt, will challenge other librarians with time on their hands to jump even higher (or perhaps that should be lower)."

-- Russell Ash and Brian Lake, authors of Bizarre Books: A Compendium of Classic Oddities (Harper Perennial, 2007)
