Curses! Broiled Again!: The Hottest Urban Legends Going

Jan Harold Brunvand, Author W. W. Norton & Company $21.95 (335p) ISBN 978-0-393-30711-5
Syndicated columnist Brunvand here presents a collection of columns about legends that haunt the public consciousness but have little or no basis in fact, including tales of poisonous snakes in amusement parks, airline pilots locked out of their flight cabins and AIDS Mary, who intentionally spreads disease. PW found that ``much of the material is ho-hum and all too familiar.'' Illustrated. (Sept.)
