For those who have already booked tickets to Atlanta to see the Olympics, the University of Georgia has a thick, literate guide to the state. With contributions by Mary Hood, James Kilgo, Timothy J. Crimmins and various others, The New Georgia Guide offers essays, 136 b&w photos and some 800 pages of text about the Okefenokee, Savannah, the Appalachians and Atlanta. ($19.95 ISBN 0-8203-1799-3; cloth $39.95 1798-5) For the old Southern hands who think they already have a grasp on Southern culture (or at least on the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture), the University of North Carolina Press offers Yellow Dogs, Hushpuppies, and Bluetick Hounds: The Official Encyclopedia of Southern Culture Quiz Book to test yourself. Compiled by Lisa Howorth, it includes some simple questions (""What is the oldest literary quarterly in America?"" Sewanee Review), while others require a modicum of sophistication and panache (""Where is Chittlin' Strut Festival?"" Salley, S.C., where an improbable five tons of chitlins are consumed annually). Answers include recipes for such long-missed treats as Benne wafers and pork fries. ($9.95 ISBN 0-8078-4592-2)
