5 BRANIGAN, CYNTHIA A. Adopting the racing greyhound.
New York Howell Book House 1992 0876051905 / 9780876051900 Soft Cover 
148 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wraps, very good. From the back cover: This book goes into virtually every conceivable situation that a person adopting a Greyhound is likely to encounter. But with its completeness, the book is also extraordinarily readable (Cleveland Amory). People who adopt an ex-racer have spared an intelligent, elegant creature from either immediate destruction or eventual destruction in a research laboratory. But if the adopter does not know how the dog was trained, fed and cared for during its track life, and how to modify or change these practices, then the result will be an unhappy owner and an unsuccessful adoption. In the only book of its kind on the subject, Cynthia1 Branigan addresses such topics as how to choose the right dog for you; preparing the home; feeding, grooming and training; equipment; participating in organized competitions and just having fun! Included in the Appendix are all the Greyhound adoption centers nationwide. The book also touches on the proud history of this oldest of all purebred dog families, the only breed of dog mentioned by name in the Bible. Even though the Greyhound has traditionally been used in hunting and coursing, it gets along extremely well with other dogs and adapts well to life in the home. Anyone who adopts an ex-racer, whether for humanitarian reasons or for the simple desire for companionship, will have a patient, loving creature that is eager to please and a joy to be with.

272 pages, boards, fine in dj. Wonderful and terrifying illustration of snarling cat on dust jacket cover.

Greenberg and Ed Gorman have been on the prowl again to gather nineteen brand-new tales of mystery and suspense from modern masters, inspired by the cat. Each tale, like each cat, is an original. There is the spoiled Persian that threatens a marriage in Nancy Pickard's 'Every Wednesday'; the loyal cats that guard a frail old man in Christopher Fahy's 'Hunger'; the predatory butterscotch Tom in Bill Pronzini's 'Tom'; the hardboiled detective cat in Carole Nelson Douglas' 'The Maltese Double Cross'; the jealous husband's nemesis in Bill Crider's 'The New Black Cat'; the sorceress' familiar in Charlotte MacLeod's 'A Long Time Sitting'; John Suter's terrifying robot cat in 'Remote', and a mangy yellow Tom in Joan Hess' 'The Maggody Files: Hillbilly Cat,' who proves the truth in the old adage that 'where there's old ladies and a cat, the nephew's up to no good.'
