    “Yes,” she said, “the tourists like them.”

    “Do Amish buy them?”

    “Well,” she said, “a lot of people read them.” Later, when I was giving an earlier version of this essay at a public conference at Elizabethtown, an Amish grandfather told me, “We would have some of these ...

    "See there," says Maier. "That's a thought."

    "It's pretty," I say, quite uncomprehending. "This is 24-bit colour, right?"

    Mennonite and Amish Serial Fiction: An Informal Bibliography

    by Ervin Beck

    Joe Springer, curator of the Mennonite Historical Library at Goshen College, wants the library to contain all books ever published by and about Mennonites, Amish and Hutterites. He not only knows the MHL catalog, but he combs both rare book and new book catalogs and seems to remember whatever he has seen.

    So when I was writing “In This Issue” as an introduction to serial fiction by and about Mennonites and Amish, I wanted to include a paragraph listing of all such authors’ names. I knew of eleven. I sent the list to him, asking him to add any others ...
