Actually, THE BLACK MASS OF BROTHER SPRINGER was Willeford's title. The original publisher asked Willeford to come up with a more 'commercial' title: Willeford suggested they call it NIGGER LOVER. The obviously unamused publisher simply retitled it HONEY GAL. But now it's back in print under the correct title.
