Call for Papers: Special issue on Margaret Millar, _Clues: A Journal of Detection_
(deadline: April 28, 2006)

Published quarterly, the peer-reviewed _CLUES: A Journal of Detection_ welcomes scholarly articles on all aspects of mystery and detective material in print, television, and film without limit to period or country covered. The spring 2007 issue will focus on Canadian-born author and screenwriter Margaret Millar (Edgar winner, _Beast in View_; MWA Grand Master; wife of author Ross Macdonald).

Guest Editor: Dean James, Houston, Texas

For the issue, the guest editor would particularly like to see articles that:

-- illustrate Millar's influence on the development of the suspense novel (perhaps with comparisons to Patricia Highsmith and Dorothy B. Hughes),

-- show the influence of Millar's environmental concerns on her settings,

-- analyze Millar's prescient awareness of social trends (e.g., as demonstrated in _How Like an Angel_, one of the first suspense novels to deal seriously with cult behavior), or

-- highlight Millar's treatment of issues (e.g., racial attitudes toward Hispanics in Southern California)

Submission Details. All articles in languages other than English must be accompanied by a short paragraph describing their contents. Submissions should include a short (50-word) abstract and be between 15 to 20 double-spaced, typed pages (approximately 3,300 to 6,000 words) in Microsoft Word or WordPerfect with minimal formatting. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts both on disk and in hard copy as back-up or as an electronic submission. Manuscripts should follow the _MLA Style Manual_ by Joseph Gibaldi
(2nd ed., 1998), including parenthetical citations in text and an alphabetized list of Works Cited; and should be accompanied by a stamped return envelope if return of manuscript is desired.
