I also just received this book -Oxford companion to crime and mystery writing- and am quite surprised by it. Since the tone is very classy (as in British upper class), I did a count on the contributors. I came up with this: 54 English contributors, 150 American. 7 Canadian, 2 Italian, 2 Netherlands, and one each from Norway, Scotland, Japan, South Africa, France, Sweden, Australia. I also counted those who were profs or ex-profs and came up with 124. There were 106 who had other professions and I counted the numerous librarians in this category. Marian Poller Herzlyia, Israel
