the specific books. Any suggestions as to his best?>>

Let me add three more titles to those already mentioned: "The Doomsters,"
"The Instant Enemy," and "The Zebra-Striped Hearse." "The Doomsters" (1958)
is a particularly interesting work, because it was begun in the midst of the
author's troubles with his daughter and reflects some of the insights
Macdonald gained in dealing with those troubles. Macdonald/Miller, himself,
called it his "diary of psychic progress."
