_Postmodern Culture_ is looking for reviews of recent books,
films, CDs, plays, TV Shows, concerts, sporting events,
performances, exhibitions, conferences and conventions,
happenings, and so forth, for the September 1995 issue.  Reviews
should be approximately 2000-3500 words long, and should follow
the journal's format guidelines, which are available from the
_PMC_ review editor.   Reviews should be submitted by August 25.
A selection will be made at that time, and authors whose reviews
are published will be invited to choose two books from _PMC_'s
library of recent titles.  All correspondence will be answered
and all submissions will be given careful consideration.  A
selective list of recent titles follows this announcement, but
many other texts and events could be appropriate material for
review in _Postmodern Culture_.
