great work, kerry! i notice you don't have a book or author listed for grave digger or coffin ed. if you want one, i believe chester himes would be the author and _cotton comes to harlem_ would be at least one book that they appear in (don't know about any others.)

whoops! i guess maybe you didn't do the list. oh, well, open mouth... insert foot. kudos to whoever did do the list.
